Drag and drop claiming incorrect when actually correct

Hi everyone,

I have a drag and drop exercise where the user needs to drag and drop images into a specific order sequence (i.e. they must drag step 1 under step 1 header). My image drop items are assigned to the correct drop targets, but when we publish or preview it says the answer is incorrect. Has this happened to anyone? 

I thought I had it working the very first time i tested it, but once I published and tested again it no longer worked.

Thank you!

Unfortunately, it is confidential content so I can't share. 

I think I got this to work - let me know if this sounds like a known issue.

Originally my drop objects and drop targets were stacked on top of each other but in the wrong order -  instructions were "Here are the steps, however they are currently in the wrong order. Please rearrange each step accordingly. The steps are essentially puzzle pieces that the user has to connect in the right order.

I think i fixed it by re-sizing the drop objects so that they were below the targets and now it seems to work. It isn't the ideal situation (because now the content in the drop object is a little hard to read), but at least it seems to be working. Is there an issue with having the drop target and drop objects originate right on top of each other? Sorry if that is confusing! Let me know.

Hi Erin,

Thanks for getting back to me. Yes, it makes sense If they are stacked, it might cause some issues with recognition. You might also want to make sure that the objects aren't grouped together. If they are, try un-grouping them. Another community member was experiencing a similar issue in this thread, and I think you might fight the suggestions helpful. Though it's not exactly the same, maybe the suggestions they posted will help you maintain the quality of your course. 

Let me know how it turns out.

Thanks again, Erin!
