JMatch Sort v1.4.2 + RTL

A drag-and-drop categorisation exercise by Agnes Simonet with Hot Potatoes JMatch.

The add-on creates a drag-and-drop categorisation JMatch exercise with HotPotatoes - a wonderful addition to the range of exercises possible with HotPotatoes that many people have wanted. Categories are dynamically created. Possible shuffling and limited items each time the page is loaded.

Known issues:

  • an advanced warning - the same category must be written the same way. Do not mix lower and uppercase letters for the same category. That is, Birds, BIRDS, and birds will produce three different categories
  • If you choose to show only a certain number of items each time the page loads, it just happens sometimes that items from fewer categories (2 or 3 out of 4 or more) are chosen randomly, therefore not all categories will show in the exercise – do NOT worry, this is NOT a bug, but expected behaviour.

See a demo categorisation exercise (Practice mode with Fixed item, Shuffling on, Limited number of items when page loads, auto height and width of categories).

RTL version available. See a demo exercise in Hebrew
