    Many thanks adding to the expanding options for question types and for sharing this plugin with the Moodle community. I have reviewed and approved the entry. If time permits, a screenshot or two might be helpful for some just to get a visual idea of what the question type does. Peace - Anthony

    This is another invaluable question type that you have given to the community. I started using Moodle again after a longtime and I see a big difference due to the contribution you have made. Thanks so much on behalf of the whole community.
