Drag & Drop question type is used in interactive worksheets and involves dragging the objects to the desired locations.


This interactive question type is auto-graded.

There are two ways to place the element in the needed area:

  • Click the element, and drag it to the necessary place while holding the mouse button and adjusting the size.

  • Сlick the element first, then click the desired spot. The field will appear in that spot. Adjust to the desired size.

  1. Add as many elements as needed to cover all the items you want your students to interact with.

  2. Specify which elements are moveable parts and which ones are dropzones by clicking "Choose Dropzone" (if it already exists on the document) OR "Add dropzone" (to create a new dropzone). More than one element can have the same dropzone.

  3. Add a picture from the computer as a dropzone. Available only for PRO users.

By clicking on the following icon, you'll open a pop-up with the SETTINGS section:

In the drop zone settings section, you can specify:

The number of points for answering correctly.

Click the field and select the desired option from a dropdown list. You can either decide on the number of points from 1 to 10, set it by default, or choose not to score the task.

  • Note! If you create a new edform or copy and edit an existing one, you select the option "do not to score" in the worksheet (element) settings, then you will not be able to score that assignment in the Reports.

    If this step was taken by mistake, you can go to the worksheet (element) settings and change the scoring criteria. Then you will be able to grade that element in the new or any already existing report.

Manipulations that you can do with the element:

  • Upload images. For moveable parts.

  • Adjust its size.

  • Move the element to a different place. To do this, hover over the field click, hold the six-dots icon, drag it where needed, and then release the button.

  • Duplicate the element by clicking the copy icon next to the Settings icon. A copy will appear below.

  • Remove the element from the worksheet by clicking the trash icon.

  • Click the icon of moving the element, and in a menu, choose the element's position relative to other elements: send back, send backward, bring forward, bring to front.

  • Lock or unlock the element by clicking on the moving element icon.

Student View

This is how your students will see the Drag & Drop task:


Once the student finishes an assignment, the system automatically checks and grades it.

You can track the student's grades and answers in the Reports section. If the task was graded incorrectly, you have the right to correct it by clicking on the desired field and selecting the number of points for the assignment.

The color will immediately turn green, marking the correct answer.
