    In Moodle 2.6 (Build: 20131118)

    Place this text and try to do.

    "Εδώ ο [εκπαιδευτής] κάνει μια ερώτηση και καθορίζει μια επιλογή από πολλαπλές απαντήσεις. Αυτό μπορεί να είναι χρήσιμο σαν μια γρήγορη δημοσκόπηση για να [διεγείρετε] τη σκέψη πάνω σε ένα θέμα, για να επιτρέψετε στους μαθητές της τάξης να ψηφίσουν για το πως θα συνεχιστεί το μάθημα ή για να συλλέξετε ερευνητικά δεδομένα."

    I just tried your example against Moodle 2.6 and the latest version of the source from github ( and it worked correctly for me in both dragdrop and dropdown mode. Can you confirm you are using the 1.3 code as in that URL?

    Hello, I have to do grammar test with gaps, that are with drop-down menu and the first answer has to be vizualized by default in the gaps. This test is about punctuation rules and students have to choose from space or comma. Can you help me?

    Avalsinay Ava I don't understand your question. What do you mean by visualized by default in the gaps?

    When students work with the test they have to see in the gaps one of the possible answer - for example comma. And when they click on this gap (with the comma) the drop-down menu have to show another possibility - for example space without comma. They have to decide which of the answers is right (is there comma in the text or not). I hope that I managed to explain my problem. Thank you very much.

    Thanks a lot for the plugin. I need your help if you can help me. I need to disappear the words that i use in the gaps.

    How i mean that? When i drag and drop a word in a box that word should stop appear in the top with all the other words. Is there any possibility or suggestion for customizing the code?

    I understand what you are asking for and I did look at putting in this functionality. However it is not as easy as it first looks. The code for such a change would probably go into

    If you look at the source you will see a commented out section where I was experimenting with "dissapparing" the selected words. See line 45 of
    Where it says display:none

    Fantastic and inspiring presentation yesterday at mootuk14. Already playing about with table design and layout - superb tool for schools. Wondered how impossible it would be to include "hints" in the task? eg hover over the empty cell or use the Hints feature that is in the OU question type? Many thanks for making this freely available to the community.

    Thank you for the feedback. Could you elaborate on what you mean by hints and when they would be displayed. I have been working on a concept which I call "per gap feedback" which may be a similar idea

    I have seen the feedback that can be put in the core Cloze type but not in the OU question type.
