File upload question
This type of question is created in the same manner as a short answer question.
With a file upload question, students will be given special instructions about what types of files are accepted. Students may add more than one file as long as the files do not total to more than 5 MB. In order for students to add multiple files, they will need to use either the ctrl or shift keys while they are browsing and choosing files. (see screenshot below)
