Adding Images to Google Forms

Session Description
If you utilize Google Forms for assessment (or any other reason) you have probably wanted to add an image to a form at some point. Unfortunately there is not a native way to do this with Google Forms.  The only way to do it is to manually edit the html.  This really limits the use of Google Forms for assessment.  
In this session you will learn how to use a script from the Google Apps Script to automatically generate an html file with image tags that you can upload to your web server (or a public dropbox folder).   
This session will be interactive. You can come with your own short quiz and images, or use my sample files. We will walk through the steps one by one, and by the end of the session you will have created a quiz with images, without having to manually edit any html.
If there is time left over we will discuss various tips and tricks for using Google Forms for assessment, such as utilizing Flubaroo, and methods for grading free response questions.
Here is a link to a post about the script.
