I was writing some things on Yacapaca today, when I discovered they seem to have added a feature (or perhaps it's been there for a while and I hadn't noticed it) where you can upload a picture and ask the students to identify a particular element of it. I've had a bit of a play around and put together a quiz on the Bayeux Tapestry, but thought this could might be useful for other topics - Charles I's execution immediately springs to mind but I'm sure people will have other ideas

When you click new question, and you got the options for the type of question, there is a locate position type. You then upload the image you want to use and select the area you want students to find on the source. You can select upto 4 areas and comment on each of those, then add a comment for the rest of the picture. Like most new things it's worth having a play around and seeing if you're happy with what you can produce - but have a look at the Bayeux Tapestry test I created yesterday, and hopefully that will make it clearer as to what might be achieved using this feature in the future

In a truly circular-web based fashion, here is a response from the Chalkface blog about this specific thread that also provide some additional useful information:

The Yacapaca objective-assessment question types

These are the question types that can be compiled into quizzes and multiple-choice surveys.

The original multiple choice question. Two to six options.

Two to six checkboxes, none, some or all of which need to be selected to earn the mark. Students earn half a mark for one incorrect box, quarter mark for two, and so forth.

AKA “fill in the gap”. You can specify multiple correct answers, and also target specific incorrect answers with feedback relevant to that particular mistake.

Students match two to six pairs of items.

Students select a point on an image such as a map or diagram. Selection inside the area you define earns the point.
