Hi again all. Lauern, no worries, just sharing your pain
Saenna, the reason I wanted a dropdown list of possible answers (with one being correct) is best explained using the activity I was working on. See screenshot below
So I want the user to choose the correct RACI value for each of the cells in the Table shown. If I could have a drop down field with the possible answers, I could position that dropdown on the field itself. Granted, this would still require that I duplicate this question 28 times and show the next cell (and previous correct answer, as you will see in the next screenshot a few slides down the line) each time, but I feel a dropdown would work better than what I ended up using. The drag and drop question type with the drop field positioned in the relevant cell for the question.
Hope this explains my thinking?
Lauren, perhaps my tinkering can give you some kind of idea in solving your requirement?
