Responsive Drag and Drop Example

Here is a typical example of how a Responsive Drag and Drop question type is often used. The example asks the learner to determine and sort which answers are a city and which are a country. In Preview the Droppers are stacked in order, from left to right, ready to be sorted into the correct Dropbox:

The Dropbox will appear on the page for as long as the learner clicks and holds onto the Dropper:

Once all the Droppers have been sorted into a Dropbox, the learner can then submit their answers.

Note: If you want the Dropboxes to display on screen prior to the Droppers being selected, you may prefer to use the Drag & Drop question type.
