Exhibits

Exhibits can be included in multiple ways:

  • Items: The multimedia file can be directly inserted into an item stem or item response
  • Linked panes: Links can be provided to multimedia files within the item.
  • Split pane views: FastTest will display items with a horizontal (top/bottom) or vertical (left/right) split pane view allowing the item stem and answers to be displayed on one side and one or more embedded assets to be displayed on the other.  Users are also able to specify the percentage of the screen occupied by the stimulus.
