    HI,

    Please, tell if the drag&drop plugins types support mass data input code like the standard Moodle quiz plugins do? It would open up quite new possibilities if they did!
    Thanks.

    Hi Edner,

    You might want to go ahead and update to the latest version of Moodle before installing the question type plug in. Then if you select the version of the plug in for your major version of Moodle ie. 2.5 in your case the plug in will install no problem. The plug in will probably install with older versions of Moodle.

    Hi Balázs!

    I think you are referring to question import formats that allow you to quickly author some question types using simple codes. The closest you can get for this for this question type is Moodle XML import, you could try exporting an example question and looking at the code that produces and then copy that.

    Thank you very much for your answer. Yes, this is exactly what I wanted to ask about. Should have thought about it myself: if the system can export in a format then it can also read in data written in the same format..

    I'm just curious if there is a timeline to upgrade the drag and drop question types to Moodle 2.6?

    When I get time. I don't think it is a big job. In fact, I think if you take the latest version from the master branch on github, then it will work. However, I need the time to prove that before I upgrade this plugins database entry.

    I have just tested, and the 2.5 version was working fine in Moodle 2.6. I have just updated the plugins DB entry to say that.

    Just in case no-one ever says this Tim: *much appreciated* !!

    I did test things last year and they seemed OK. No I am back from a sort of a holiday and ready for an upgrade to 2.6. At least I'm nearly ready.

    Write at the top of this page it says

    "There are working examples in eAssessment with Moodle on our OpenLearn site.

    The documentation is in How to create questions in Moodle on that site."

    So follow the link and How to create questions in Moodle is in Section 9.

    Is it possible to use this plugin using a keyboard (no mouse)?

    Hi Michael,
    Yes, You can tab through place holders and then using arrow buttons (up/right arrows take you forward and down/left arrows take you backwards through the list.

    Hi- looking to integrate a question where the blanks don't have to be in order? Like [Apples] and [Oranges] is the same as [Oranges] and [Apples]. I tried making all of the blanks the same number and all of the responses the same number, it only took the first as correct. Any ideas?

    Sadly adding such logic starts adding to the complexity of the form and we backed off. I know that this and other similar ideas would be really nice but this question type does not support what you are asking for.
