New feature
in Moodle 3.4!

This is very similar to the Drag and drop into text question type, but uses drop-down menus in the text instead of drag-boxes. This works well where the question text is very long and you would have to scroll a lot to do drag and drop.

How to create a question

Give the question a descriptive name to help you find it in the question bank. (Students won't see the name.)

Add the question to the text editor, using any formatting you wish.

Use double square brackets wo sets of square brackets '[[n]]' with a number in place of the word you wish the students to find:

Add the missing words or phrases in the correctly numbered boxes in the 'Choice' section. (You may add extra ones to make the question harder. If you tick 'Shuffle' the display order will be shuffled. (Note that is not possible to add formatting to the responses)

Groups

If choices are grouped, then only items in the appropriate group will display in the drop down menu of a blank.

In the example below, Group 1 are verbs and Group 2 are possessive adjectives:

The students see just the relevant group choices in a dropdown:
