Drag & Drop Questions for Trivia Games
When using Drag & Drop Order questions in a trivia game, the answer options added to the question will be arranged into a "correct order" on the Experience Dashboard. Your participants must then arrange a scrambled version of the answer options into exactly the correct order to earn a correct answer for the trivia question.
Using Drag & Drop Order questions in a trivia game allows questions like the following to be asked:
- "Put these Taylor Swift albums in chronological order from earliest to latest."
- "Arrange these U.S. presidents in order from first to last."
- "Order these NFL players according to most Superbowl championships won, lowest first."
Then participants must arrange the added answer options in the correct order.
Drag & Drop Questions for Polls
When using Drag & Drop Order questions in polls, participants are simply arranging or "ranking" answer options in order to cast a vote. Participants are simply casting a vote in the form of an order or ranking.
Using Drag & Drop Order questions in a poll allows questions like the following to be asked:
- "Place the following company benefits in order of priority to you."
- "Rank the following menu items at our restaurant in order of most to least favorite."
- "Arrange the following vacation destinations from your most to least desired."
