Student adding an image to their answer
I've recently developed a Moodle site using Moodle v 1.8.2+ and using a number of different quizzes.

I'm sorry if this has been asked before but I did a search and I had a quick scan of the pages that came back and could not see the same issue.

I need students to upload Screenshots for assessment so I've added a Quiz using Essay answers, thinking that they could add screenshots using the add image button to upload their screenshots to the server hosting the Moodle.

Some of the users can, some can't and I can't work out the difference.

This is the screen I expected them to get:


That way the users who don't have access to upload the pictures to a Webserver could upload them to my server.

Instead they get:


Do I have a setting set incorrectly and I am dreaming that the students could upload to the server as part of the answer?

What you want is not currently possible with the essay question. If you have Moodle 1.9, you should be able to download and install the File response question type: http://moodle.org/mod/data/view.php?d=13&rid=976.

This may possibly be merged into the Essay question type in Moodle 2.0.
