New feature
in Moodle 4.4!


Originally developed by community moodler Gordon Bateson the ordering question type was added to standard Moodle from Moodle 4.4 onwards thanks to sponsorship by the Moodle Users Association.

It displays several items (words, phrases, images or other media) in a random order which must then be dragged into the correct sequential order.
