How do I give instance feedback when the user drops an item on the target?

Hi Brandy,

There are a number of ways to do this. Here's one idea. I've attached a quick and inelegant sample

To indicate an incorrect drop

Click the Edit Drag and Drop button in the question pane on the right

When the window opens, look on the right side of the screen.

Click the "Return item to start point if..." check box.

From the drop-down, select "a collect drop target"

To indicate a correct drop

Add a "drop correct state" for each target and format the target to look different somehow. Here, I've added a green check mark.

Set up a trigger so that:

Action: Change state of

On Object: this is the target (in my case rectangle 1 or rectangle 2)

To State: Drop Correct

When : Object dropped on

Object: this is the draggable item (in my case oval 1 or oval 2)

Dropped on: again, this is the target
