    Hi Marcus
    Gapfill is amazing and I am using in Moodle 3.4 server with version 1.971. However, it seems the gapfill questions are still not supported in the Moodle Mobile app (3.4.0). I had thought the plugin was usable in the app and am sure I have used it in the app??

    Glad you like it. The mobile app has been supported since February last year and I have various demo sites I test it on. What happens when you attempt to use it with the mobile app?. Probably best to email me at marcusavgreen at gmail dot com.

    Hi Marcus,
    I would like to be sure that the student give all the correct answers. In the example shown in the screenshot, the student can write 'lion' twice in the 'feline' column, and it get 100% mark.
    Is it possible to control this case?
    Thanks in advance

    Hi Giovanni,
    This can be done using the no duplicates mode which is documented here

    Thanks Marcus, It works very well!
    One more question: when I choose the dragdrop answer type, with no duplicate option, I'd be happy to see the options disappearing when I chose one and drag it in a placeholder (it doesn't matter if it's the right place or not).
    This is extremely usefull when you have a few words to be dragged, specially in the mobile app. Is it possible?

    Hi Marcus,
    Great question type, but I'd also like the option Giovanni mentioned. Would it be possible to add a switch so that each option can only be used once? I use this question type often to arrange items in a table, and only allowing an answer to be used once would help students make sure they have placed all the items.

    Also, in No Duplicates mode, it would be nice if you could still have multiple blanks be counted correct.

    Hi Marcus
    I have the latest version of gapfill Release 1.974 on my site but if accessing from the app users receive message saying question type is not supported and are prompted to open in browser. Any ideas why?

    Hi Freddie
    Which version of the app are you running? It should work with the latest and the previous, but just to check. Also which version of Moodle are you running? You can see it in action at and you can login as username=s1 password=test

    In the past I have seen issues where the app doesn't recognise that there is a new plugin available and you may need to go to App settings synchronisation. I think that re-downloads all the javascript stuff.

    Hi Marcus
    It's strange I am using the latest version of the app (the one that was updated just a few days ago) and the latest version of gapfill (the one you released today). I have synched the app with the website but the same problem. I am using Moodle 3.5.1 and an IPhone SE

    Hi Marcus,
    Help appreciated. I've just installed the plugin in moodle 3.5 using the install link instead of downloading the file. Problem is, when I try to add an activity, this plugin does not show in the list of available activities. Am I missing something?

    It is a question type not an activity, you need to use it like any other question type.
