Matching Drag and Drop Issue

Dec 20, 2011

HI guys!

I looked for a sloution but couldn't seem to find one.

I am creating a Matching Drag/Drop Question. Basically the question asks the user to match a "Yes" or "No" to each Item on the left . Everything is matched correctly but when I preview the question  and match the answers correctly it tells me I did not selct the correct response.

Ok am I crazy, what am I doing wrong? I have used this question type before with no problem.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Deb,

Matching questions only work with unique matches. Therefore it's recognising the 'incorrect' "Yes" for each option.

E.g. the question is set up as:

Small tools = YES (1)

Computer software = YES (2)

If YES (2) was matched with Small tools, this would be recognised as incorrect.

As an alternative could you use a multiple-response question and ask the user to select all that apply (i.e. all that are a "Yes")?
