Image Drag and Drop


Image drag and drop questions are formative assessments and occur before Exploration content is presented. These questions should only contain labels/images that are presented in the upcoming Exploration content pages.

They appear in Test Your Knowledge in the Exploration tab and can be added to lessons through the Question Customization tool or the Custom Lesson Authoring tool.
