Drag and drop interactions: allowing a checkmark or X to be dragged to multiple hotspots?

Jun 17, 2020


I'd like to have a learner be able to drag a checkmark to a hotspot that is 'correct,' and an 'X' to a hotspot that is 'incorrect.' This is easy enough when there's only one correct hotspot and one incorrect one, as only one checkmark and one X are required.

Ideally, I'd like to be able to create one checkmark and one X, replicated several times, and have a combination of any checkmark with any 'correct' hotspot elicit a correct result (and the same with X/incorrect).

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks, Wendy.

I just tried playing with that option, but don't know how to make it work. Perhaps my head is too foggy from a late night of system maintenance. :)

I'm going to see if I can get Sam's kind effort to do what I need. If not, I'll post a sample slide for input.

I appreciate your stepping in to help!

Thanks again for the assistance with this. Sam, your template worked well for me.

I've got the interactions working the way I want, but need to find a way to convert this to a quiz slide. Wendy, is there a way this can be done with the 'pick one' quiz type?

Also, I'm noticing a glitch that's probably got something to do with trigger orders. After a number of times dragging the X or checkmark to the targets, the graphic isn't draggable; I guess that means it didn't return along the motion path.

Any suggestions as to how I can simplify the current setup would be very welcome!

Hi Allan

see if the attached works for you or gives you an idea.

It is the second slide. I duplicated the first slide - removed all the triggers, removed the DnD freeform, then converted to Pick One.  I created a drop correct / drop incorrect state for all tick and cross objects.

I've used variables and offstage buttons which I have showing onstage so you can see when they fire.

Hope this helps

Wendy, this works beautifully! What a clever way to approach it.

I struggled with this for nearly a day trying to figure out a way to make it work. Your help is--yet again--greatly appreciated.

This is a format I'll be able to use for many questions, and it'll make the experience better for anyone taking the courses. Thank you so much!

And thank you, Sam. The example you put together has added more tools to my kit that I'm already putting to use.
