‘Match pair’ questions have two columns of items. The participant drags the items up or down to pair items in the left-hand column with those in the right-hand column.
  1. Go your quiz.
  2. Go to Edit > Edit quizbuilder page or select Edit this quiz at the bottom of the page.
  3. Select Match pairs from the Add a question options at the left-hand side. The Add/Edit a question allowing the user to drag into matched pairs page appears:

  4. In the Question name box, type a name for the question – for example, question1. The Question name isn't displayed to the participant; it's used to identify the question in submissions.
  5. In the Question box, type the question. This is displayed to the participant.
  6. In the Choices box, type each pair of items, separated by the pipe character |, on a new line. E.g. for a question such as Match the capital city with the country:

    Paris|France
    Copenhagen|Denmark
    Oslo|Norway
  7. In the Feedback for correct answer box, type in any feedback.
  8. In the Feedback for wrong answer box, type in any feedback.
  9. Select the Save button.
  10. When you have finished editing the quiz, select the Done button at the top right.
