In the “drag and drop onto image” question type the instructor specifies a background image, markers that students will drag, and the correct marker locations. Students then have to drag the markers to the correct locations specified by their instructor.
To create a drag and drop onto image question click on “add” in the edit quiz page, and find “drag and drop onto image.”
Next, give the question a title so that you can find it again in the question bank. Below the title box, type in the question text.
You will have to upload a ‘background’ image. This is the image that students will drag and drop markers on-to. For example, I chose a blank world map:
Next, you have to choose what kind of “marker” students will be dragging onto the image. You can choose a “draggable image” marker type, or a “text” marker type. If you choose a draggable image, the image can be no bigger than 150 x 150 pixels. Students will then be able to drag the images you have chosen onto the background images in the correct way. I chose the “text” question type. If you choose the text question type, enter text in the fields in the “draggable items” section to make it a draggable option for students to choose from:
Next, click the “refresh preview” button in the “preview” section.
Then, go to the “drop zones” section and click on the dropdown box next to the words, “draggable item,” for each answer. Then, select the text option that you want to turn into a marker. They will appear in the preview section as boxes below the background image:
Simply drag each one onto the right place in the background image and the coordinates for the correct answer will update in the “drop zones” section below:
Finally, click “save changes” and you are finished.
