Created by Adriane Boyd during 2007 Google Summer Of Code, the drag and drop matching question type is quite similar to the matching question type found in standard Moodle, differences are:

• during question creation/edition of drag and drop matching questions, an editor is available for each answer (in standard matching question this is not possible because these elements are displayed inside a select menu during question attempts)
• during question attempts a drag and drop interface is displayed and the student must drag each right element on the correct spot on the left.

Hi! Ravi,
Thanks for getting in touch with us. Unless you drag and drop an answer, it won't take an answer by itself.
So, you have to drag the right or wrong answer and drop it at the dropping field so that it recognizes what you have selected.
Thank you.

Is that screenshot from this question type? It looks like one from a core/ou question type. There are some that look more like it on this page https://docs.moodle.org/36/en/Drag_and_drop_matching_question_type

Yes I think that Marcus is right, this image has nothing to do with that plugin. I don't know who contributed to it but I will remove it and replace it with one from the documentation page.

Oops, I don't have the right to edit that page anymore (quite logical as I stopped maintaining this plugin) so I am unable to change that image!

Hi, the screenshot in the description above is not from Drag & Drop Matching but looks more like from Drag & Drop Marker: https://moodle.org/plugins/qtype_ddmarker.

In version.php $plugin->version must be 2019040400, but not 2019040200 Otherwise, the installation loops • Thu, Apr 4, 2019, 10:07 PM Hello DualCube, maybe you could integrate all the fixes that are in my Github in the master branch see https://github.com/jmvedrine/moodle-qtype_ddmatch It is GDPR compliant, has security fixes, some Behat and phpunit tests. • Sat, Apr 6, 2019, 3:29 AM Installation does not work for me. It says there's an new update available, but when trying to install it, it just gets to the admin notification page. No errors are given. • Sun, Apr 7, 2019, 3:41 AM I am having the same trouble as Richard van Iwaarden: trying install using the Moodle (3.3.6) Web interface does not seem to work, either by clicking through the notifications page or by uploading a .zip file via drag and drop in the Web interface. I haven't tried installing via the command line (though permissions seem to be fine), however. • Sun, Apr 7, 2019, 4:39 PM Same problem as Richard and Doug .... • Sun, Apr 7, 2019, 8:21 PM Hello Richard, Doug, Werner, and other users having trouble with the latest release. You can do a quick fix by changing just one line in the version.php file : change$plugin->version = 2019040200; to \$plugin->version = 2019040400; and the installatio will succeed.
