Another great tool for creating cloze tasks, the Drag and Drop question prompts students to insert the correct answer by choosing one out of several possible answers, and dragging it to one of several possible positions within the text.
To add a Drag and Drop question:
Click on the "+" icon
Choose "Drag and Drop" from the blue icons
Step 1: Create text with drop areas:
Enter your text into the question bar
Click "Add drop area" to create a designated space for your students to populate with an answer. The drop area will read "Drag answer here"
Place your cursor back on the text bar to continue typing
To delete a drop area, click the trashcan symbol
Step 2: Add choices for students:
Type each choice separately into the "type a choice to add to choices" bar, and click Enter/Return.
To remove a choice, click the X symbol attached to it.
Step 3: Define an answer key for auto-grading
Drag and drop each choice into its' correct drop area
To un-assign a choice from a drop area, click the X symbol in it
Switch on "Allow Partial Credit" to take auto-grading up a notch by allowing your students to get credit for answering part of the question correct.
