Item match

In Item matching, you ask the learner to match two sets of data. Here you provide several phrases or words and, for instance, divide them into two columns. The goal for a student is to connect the phrase from the left side with the matching one on the opposite. In other words, link images or phrases with each other.

Choose the Item Match type and enter the matching pairs in the boxes Question and Match respectively.
