Survey Question Ranking Drag and Drop - text invisible

I am trying to use the survey questions: ranking drag and drop. But the text is invisible except on hover. To  make a decision, the learner needs to see all three statements simultaneously.

On a side note, the graphic design of the built in slides takes me back to UI of 1995. It would be great to see an update of the basic slides.

Hi Paris,

Built-in quiz and survey slides don't come with variables. If you want to refer to the learner's answers later in the course, you may want to explore building a Freeform Drag-and-Drop slide.

With a Freeform slide, you can customize the design of the slide and create variables to recall the learner's choices later in the training!

Can you elaborate on this? What we want to do is have students drag and drop 15 items in order of preference. I want to set a variable representing each item to the number of preference the student ranked it. For example, let say we have chocolate, pizza, and pie for students to rank. If they put them in that order, then varChocolate = 1, varPizza = 2 and varPie = 3. It sounds like what you're talking about would do this, but I don't know how to do it without setting a million triggers ("if boxChocolate is dropped onto Target1, then set varChocolate to 1" for every box and variable). Please tell me there's an easier way since that would be 225 triggers...

Hi there Beth!

The method you described ("if boxChocolate is dropped onto Target1, then set varChocolate to 1" for every box and variable) is the way to go. But with 15 different drop targets, that's going to require a lot of triggers.

There may be another way to make this work using Javascript, but I'll leave it to the Java-experts in the community to confirm that!
