Complex Drag and Drop Issue
May 10, 2013
I would like to create a drag and drop exercise with 16 drag objects and two drop targets (A & B.)
5 of the drag objects should be dropped onto A - no problem.
5 of the drag objects should be dropped onto B - no problem.
4 of the drag objects should not be dropped on either A or B - no problem.
2 of the drag objects could be dropped onto either A or B - problem!
When matching the drag and drop items in the question window, the drag item disappears once you have used it. Consequently, you can never assign multiple drop targets to a drag object. I have looked for settings that will change this behavior but I just can't find them.
My poor-man's solution...
I can create two versions of a drag object and place one over the other so they appear to be one object. One gets assigned to Drop A and the other gets assigned to Drop B. This could only be called a solution if I make the drag objects return when dropped outside of the correct drop target (in effect, not allowing them to get the question wrong.) Even then, the learner could certainly become frustrated when dropping onto what they believe to be the correct answer.
Has anyone else encountered this issue? Better yet, does anyone have a solution?
