Using moodle 2.5.1, I imported some Hotpot short-answer quizzes into Moodle, where they worked fine as Hotpot quizzes. (Short answer is a subset of JQuiz in Hotpot.)
I then tried importing the same questions into the Moodle question bank and making a Moodle Quiz using them. The Hotpot question-import appears to have converted the questions from short answer into multiple choice questions. When I add those questions to a quiz, they come up as multiple-choice questions that contain my list of right-and-wrong matching texts as the mutiple choice items. There is no short-answer blank.
The only way I can find to convert these items into short-answer Quizzes is to re-enter them by hand.
Am I missing a step somewhere? Or is this the expected behavior?
