qmp v5 – Hotspot item type

A Hotspot question is a drag and drop question with only one “hot” area. The participant places a single marker on an image to indicate the answer.

Creating a Hotspot item 

Hotspot items require two graphics: (a) a pictorial background image on which correct answers are defined in a ‘target zone’ and (b) a marker that the participant drags over the background image to indicate an answer.

Defining a correct answer in a Hotspot item

 The target zone that defines a correct answer is rectangular and hidden from participants.
