How do I create a hot spot question?
Select an assessment.
Select Hot Spot from drop-down menu.
After selecting Hot Spot from the drop-down menu, the program will open additional options for the question.
Set the point value for the question.
Enter the point value for this question. Questions may be worth any point value you choose.
Tip: Keep in mind that the point value of all the questions in the assessment will equal the point value of the assessment in the Gradebook. So, if you want your assessment to be worth a total of 100 points, you should assign point values to your questions accordingly.

Click Choose File.
Click Choose File, then browse your computer for the desired image and select Open.
Note: It is recommended that hot spot images not exceed 600px in width. You must edit the image’s size before uploading.
Once the desired image has been selected, click Upload.
Note: To override this uploaded image with a different image, select the Choose File button again to locate another file.
Set up the image hot spots.
Once you have uploaded a hot spot image, you may begin adding the items you will want students to identify within the image. To do so:
Next to Item 1, enter a description.
Select the + icon to add additional hot spot items. (Optional)
Specify the zone for each item.
Once the desired number of items have been created, you may associate them with a specific region within the uploaded image. Select the button to the left of the description before drawing the item zone. When the button is green, you are working on that item.
Within the image, click and drag to create a hot spot zone for the highlighted item. When students click anywhere within this zone, they will have successfully selected the selected item.
Note: Ensure that the hot spot zone’s number (indicated in the upper-right of the zone) correlates to the correct item in the list above. You may re-do the zone selection by clicking and dragging again.
Allow partial credit.
By default, if you have multiple hot spot items within your question, partial credit is enabled. If a question is worth 10 points and a student only correctly identifies 1 out of 2 possible hot spot items, they will receive credit for 5 points. You may disable this option by selecting No for Allow Partial Credit.

Assign to pool. (Optional)
