Drag-and-Drop Matching

Question types ::: qtype_ddmatch
Maintained by DualCube Team
Question type similar to the matching question type but with a drag and drop interface for the students during attempt.
Latest release:
3054 sites
83 fans
Current versions available: 4

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.


This plugin is part of set Seeking new maintainer.

    Any chance you could update the VCS (github) link and, if you're going to be maintaining this going forward, remove it from the "seeking new maintainer" set? Would be helpful to us in assessing whether we can continue to use it.

    Hi. Just wanted to let you know there is a bug within the styles.css file for version 2020052700. The following lines:

    tr {
    word-break: break-all;

    ...apply a word break rule to the headers of all tables across Moodle. If possible, please could you provide a fix asap. Many thanks!

    Following up on Roland's comment here...I just updated to the new version and my table headers throughout my site are all now out of whack. I would very much appreciate a fix for this asap.

    ...just a quick note to inform anyone that runs into this problem prior to the issue being fixed, removing the offending code from the styles.css file (below) and clearing your site cache, will return all headers to their 'normal' state.

    tr {
    word-break: break-all;


    P.S. Actually, the following may be more appropriate:

    .ddmatch tr {
    word-break: break-all;

    Hi. Just wanted to let you know there is a bug within the styles.css file for version 2020052700. The following lines:

    p, .text {
    font-size: 15px !Important;
    word-break: break-word;
    line-height: 20px;
    color: #333;

    ...cause many instances of text across our Moodle site to be rendered incorrectly (in terms of size, colour, etc.). If possible, please could you provide a fix asap. Many thanks!

    Is there any chance you make the plugin so that when you update moodle it automatically downloads the plugin as part of the upgrade? This would save so much time as currently when you upgrade it just says, "Additional Missing from disk!". Thank you so much.

    Is this version compatible with Moodle 3.10, 3.11 ?

    Hello everyone. Just wondering if there is a way to add multiple correct answers to drag and drop matching questions.

    Hi there we have having issues with this type of questions, the items are not dragging into the locations at all, have tried multiple browsers and no luck?

    We are having the same issue as Daniel Dawkins and similar to previous issues mentioned above with changes to headers and text in other questions. We have Moodle 3.3 and have the latest update of this plugin installed.
