Drag and drop: remove highlights for correct and incorrect answers

I am using the picture Drag and Drop in a context where colour has very specific meaning.

Highlighting correct answers in green provides a misleading answer to students.

Can this highlighting be disabled?

Hi tyork,

It is possible that you may have skipped some steps in creating your Drag and Drop. Please follow the steps below when creating a Drag & Drop activity with multiple drop zones and multiple draggables:

  1. Create the drop zones

  2. Create the draggables and place a check on the drop zones you would the draggable to be dragged into. This does not indicate the correct answer but only tells the content where you want to allow the draggable to drop.

  3. Edit the drop zones to place a check on the correct draggables.

You can also check this simple video on how to create a D&D with multiple drop zones and draggables.

Hi BV

Thanks for your prompt reply.

The Drag & Drop activity is working exactly as intended and designed. It's just that I don't want the correct answers to be highlighted in green if correct and red if incorrect. See screen shot attached.

Hi TY,

If you don't want green for correct and red for incorrect, what do you want to show the correctness/incorrectness of answers? Just the tick for correct and the cross for incorrect? without any colours?

That would be perfect, especially if it was an option that could be toggled.

I'm using firefox.

When the answer is dragged, even if you choose "NEVER" in the highligh drop zone, it always shows a slight change in color when the correct answer is moved to the spot. However, if we choose to opaque to 0, them, It is not possible to move the elements to other in order to be possible to get wrong answers...

Best. António
