In the question bank (Administration > Question bank), click Create a new question…
Select Drag and drop into text and click Add
Supply your question with a name and question text: In your question text, leaves 'gaps' indicated by two sets of square brackets with a number inside. This number will indicate the correct choice for that gap
Provide the question a default mark and enter any general feedback (shown to the student after they have completed the question)
Enter Choices: Decide whether to shuffle the choices (tick the box or leave unticked). Shuffling is recommended to prevent student's from surmising the correct answer based on choice order
The choice with the same number as the numbered text gap is the correct answer for that gap
To add additional 'incorrect' drag and drop answers, add additional choices that do not correspond to a numbered text gap. (in this example there is no text gap labelled [], thus 'green' will be an additional option that is not the correct answer to any question)
If using multiple choices for each question, it may be useful to Group the choices. Each group will be represented by a different colour, which will apply to both the relevant gap(s) in the text and to the choices for that group.
Avoid using groups in simple questions with only as many choices as correct answers. In this scenario the use of groups will only give away the answers.
