Best Practices: Using the Drag-and-Drop Matching Question Type in a Quiz Activity

With the latest release of Joule 2, instructors can now add the Drag-and-Drop Matching question type into a Quiz activity. This question type allows users to drag answers to a question. It’s great for sorting information, especially content that is visual in nature, phased, or process-oriented.

For example, let’s say that the content you’re teaching has four levels of information. You would like to evaluate each student’s knowledge by having them match each level to its title. To do this, you display all steps on the left-hand side of the screen. The right-hand side of the screen would include the name of each level.

This question type is similar to Matching in that the user must match answers to questions; however, with this question type, users can drag the answer to the question rather than using a drop-down menu to select it.

Drag-and-Drop Matching Question Type Features

Hints: You can display a hint after an incorrect attempt, but only when the question behavior is set to “Interactive with Multiple Tries” or “Adaptive Mode.”

Images: You can add images to questions and answers using the HTML editor.
