  5. Click Submit.
  6. Under the Assessment Template Definitions related list, click New.
    Create a template definition for each answer option you want to appear on an assessment question.
  7. Fill in the following fields:
    • Display: Enter the text to appear as the answer option.
    • Value: Enter a numeric value, equal to or greater than zero, that you want the answer option to equate to. Values are used in results calculations.
    • Selected Image: Click to add the image to use for selected state.
    • Unselected Image: Click to add the image to use for unselected state.

    When you view assessment questions that use templates, answer options appear in order from least to greatest Value.
