Drag and Drop Questions

In Claro, there are two categories for Questions: Practice Questions and Test Questions.

Practice Questions can be used at key points throughout your course to help your learners gauge their understanding of newly learned content. Since these questions are for practice purposes only, they are not graded and may be set to accept multiple attempts.

Test Questions are presented at the end of a course module and are intended to measure the learner's understanding of the learning material. Unlike Practice Questions, Test Questions must be attached to the Learning Objects containing the related content pages—they cannot be placed in an empty Learning Object. Also, since Test Questions are scored, only one question attempt is permitted per test.

To insert a Drag and Drop question:

  1. From the Course Panel select the Learning Object where you want to place your question.
  2. From the Home tab select the downward arrow of the Question button (for Test Questions) or of the Practice button (for Practice Questions).
  3. Choose a Drag and Drop question layout.
  4. Drag and Drop Questions differ from other questions in that they require you to add elements to the page (Drag Items and Drop Targets) before you can specify correct and incorrect answers. As such, the Question Properties right fly-out, where this information is specified, will not open immediately. Instead, the question opens on the Stage with a pulldown Drag and Drop Questions notice panel offering guidance for this question type. Once you've read the notice, you may select Do not show this again and close the notice.
  5. As the notice indicates, you must first add your Drag Items and Drop Targets on the stage. 
    Note: If you use multiple Drop Targets, do not place them over top of each other (using layering). This may cause Drag Items to be dropped and scored incorrectly.
    Note: If you use large Drag Items, the scoring of the item is based on where the majority of the object is placed. For example, if it overlaps two Drop Targets or it is dropped only partially on a Target, the score will be based on where largest portion of the Drag Item rests.
  6. You can also enter Question body text at this time.
    Note: This is the text that SCORM 2004 communicates to the LMS as the "question text".

  7. Select the Question tab. 
  8. Select Details, from here you can give your question a Page Title, Description, and Tags. Under Settings set the Test Question's weighting to Partial Scoring to On, Off, or To Be Determined by your Publishing Profile—See Question Weighting and Scores for more information on these settings—and finally, select Snap to Center if you want your Drag Items to position in the center of the Drop Target upon release.
    Note: Snap to Center is preferred when the Drop Target has a single Drag Item as it provides a cleaner presentation. However, if your Drop Target has multiple Drag Items and Snap to Center is enabled, remember that all the Drag Items will be stacked on top of each other in the center of the target. This may be frustrating for the learner when attempting to review their selections prior to submitting their response, as some of the items may be hidden beneath others.
  9. Select the Choices tab and then select the Add button to add a Match (correct choice), Drag Distractor (incorrect drag choice), or Drop Distractor (incorrect drop target choice). For each selection, choose the Drag Item and the Drop Target.
  10. Select the Feedback button at the bottom left of the fly-out panel to customize the feedback for this question.
  11. After you've entered custom feedback select Done on the Feedback panel.
  12. Select Save to save the settings.
  13. For more options select the Question tab from the ribbon toolbar.

Note: We recommend you use SCORM version 2004 when publishing courses with drag and drop questions. SCORM 2004 allows the question text to be communicated, whereas SCORM 1.2 deals primarily in numbers. Make sure to title all drag and drop elements so the report identifies them correctly. If you use SCORM 1.2, depending on how strict the LMS is, the title may be shortened to a sequence of numbers based on when the element was added.
