    @Phil, is it next week yet?
    And: is it possible to have feedback for this sort of question?

    Derek, see link above to eAssessment with Moodle (http://www.open.edu/openlearnworks/course/view.php?id=1581 ).

    More detailed feedback is difficult. How would teachers set it up? If you think it is possible, I suggest you post your ideas in the quiz forum.

    Thanks Tim. I did have a quick look at this site before posting but it I was too lazy and didn't find what I wanted quick.

    Here is our scenario: 16 students quite happy with practice quizzes in 2013 with no feedback ever. Lots of complaints from this year's lot.

    Our contractor who does the questions answered each of the questions and screen snapped an image of the correctly dragged 'n' dropped result, and put the image in the feedback,

    Success. Happy students. I'd have liked a button to click "Show solution" in the feedback. Would cost our budget a little less.

    " I'd have liked a button to click "Show solution" in the feedback."

    There is an option to show the correct placings of items the students have got wrong - but on the original image.

    Phil thanks. I'll have a look and track it down.

    Dear developers,

    i'm using your question type in Moodle 2.6 and it works great,
    except of one little feature. If you have a look at a question in the question bank, it's possible to show the correct answer, but if a participant submits a quiz and he gets his feedback he can't see the correct answer. It would be great, if you can fix this.
    At my university the users like this plugin and i would be great to see it become a part of the Moodle core.

    Best Regards
    Ralf

    We expect our authors to place a correct image, with everything filled in, in the General feedback field. That way students can see their answers and compare and contrast with the correct answer. We don't think that's too much to ask of authors.

    I too am having a picture rescale problem. The Image gets very small but the drop zones do not scale with it and are often off the page. Is there a limit to the image size? I have not been using particularly large images ~600x600.

    Yes there is a max size of 600 x 400. The documentation is referred to above. Here's the direct link http://www.open.edu/openlearnworks/mod/oucontent/view.php?id=52747&section=2.3.2.

    If you are the sort who tinkers with Moodle code then I believe that the 600 and 400 are easily changed.

    Dear developers,
    I am using the question type Drag and drop onto image (moodle 2.5) and it is working fine on normal sized screens. On smaller screens (tablets, smart phone) the image is cut due to its size and some of the gaps might not be displayed.
    Am I seeing it correctly that there is no option to autosize the image to screen size? Is it possible to add a scrollbar by slight modifications of the php-code (for me, as I do not know anything about PHP)?
    Thank you for all the effort!

    autosizing the image would require changes in the JavaScript code, and would not be easy. I doubt we will work on it any time soon, but if someone else wants to have a go, we welcome contributions.

    I've been using this question type for a while and it works really well. However, I've noticed that it is not possible to drag and drop on an Android device (Nexus 7). I'm using Google Chrome as the browser, but I can't seem to make it work. Has anyone had a similar experience?

    We know about that Android issue, and it is a bug in the YUI JavaScript library that Moodle uses. We reported that issue to them, and it is fixed in a later version, so eventually, when you upgrade Moodle, this question type will start working. Sorry, don't know which version of Moodle that will be. It might be 2.7, or it might not be until Moodle 2.8, which is not released yet. I really need to work out what they key version is, but I have not had time.

    Tim,
    Thanks for your reply. My school is soon to switch all of our classroom devices to Android tablets. We'd really hate to lose access to the Open University question types. Hopefully an upgrade to 2.7 or 2.8 will solve the problem.
