Tab Question & Answer


Add background image

Using Browse and Upload, you can select an image from your hard disk and add it as a background for the graphic match interaction. The uploaded image will always be displayed in its original size. If you wish to adjust the size, use the input fields for width and height. For example, if you only enter a value for the width, the height will automatically be adjusted. Enter 0 in both fields to display the image in its original size.

Define target areas

In this section, you can add target areas to the background graphic and move them as desired. Click on Add area to generate a new area. It will appear above the background graphic in the upper left corner. Now you can simply move the area to the correct position with your mouse. The size of the target areas in the graphic depends on the content of the subsequently configured assignment elements.

When running the test, users will see the "Drop correct element here” note on each target area, so it will be clear where to drag the assignment elements. You can disable this note in the Options tab.

Define assignment elements for the target areas

The table shows an overview of your added target areas, allowing you to assign the corresponding assignment element to each of the target areas. Besides text, you can also select images as assignment elements. The implementation of distractors is also possible. To do this, just empty the target area field for an assignment element.

The size of the assignment elements will be set automatically. If necessary, you can customise it in the Options tab under Presentation.

The answers are by default arranged in random order. As a result, the question will appear different for each test participant and attempt. However, for some questions, it may be desirable that the answers will not be randomly arranged. In these cases, deactivate the checkbox to disable the Shuffle option.


If necessary, you can adjust the size of the assignment elements here or disable the "Drop correct element here" note displayed on the target areas.
