Storyline can use Drop Correct and  Drop Incorrect states for this effect.  Those are considered automatic states - which means you just need to build the states and Storyline will trigger them for you.

The main thing that tends to trip people up is that  the incorrect state of an item will not display if that item was not given a correct location to drag to.  For example, if in form view, it says "None" under drop target for that item, you will not see the incorrect state display.  

Hope that helps

Hi, same question but unfortunately I don't really know at which point; I mean, which items, need to have a state "correct" or "not correct". My drag Items? Or the drop area? My outcome shall be something like the one attached, with marks for wrong and correct paths (answers). The drop areas are 5 on the left, one for each possible path, and 2 on the right, one per path. So I have 7 drop areas and I want to show correct and wrong chosen paths.

Hi Margit,

Really cool slide design! You can add "Drop Correct" and "Drop Incorrect" states to your drag items. 

Then, you can choose to let learners know their answers are correct/incorrect immediately after dropping, or you can hold off and reveal the answers after they click the "Submit" button.

I'd be happy to help you set this up! You can share your file publicly here, or send it to me privately by uploading it here. I'll keep my eye out for it!

Thank you for your input, Alyssa! Our quizzes are set to advance to the next question when the user submits an interaction- meaning they don't see any feedback on their responses until the Post-Quiz review. I created drop states replicating the check marks that are automatically applied to other questions in the post-quiz review and set the Feedback Options as you suggested, but the drop states are not appearing in the review.

Does that mean my only choice is to create my own feedback layer, per your second suggestion?
