Scoring, Drag Text & Mark the Word Content Types

Hi, I agree the scoring is very confusing particular if we are creating teaching content for young learners. 

I have three other issues:

1-    I find it very useful when creating a (Fill In The Blank) content as learners can update their answers after checking the solution without the need to retry the whole question. So they can focus and attempt to find a solution only for the parts of the question that they could not answer correctly.

However, I noticed that with the (Drag Text) and (Mark The Word) types it's not possible to do this and the learner is forced to retry the whole question, answering even the parts of the question he/she got correctly in the first time. It's not possible to re-drag or reselect the answers that are not correct; the only option is to retry the whole question again!

2-    I notices that some of the types comes with a full screen button, but there is no way to disable/hide this button if the content creator does not want the learner to go full screen.

3-    I just discovered that it's not possible to have more than one option when using the Drag Text content type. Alternatives is possible when using a (Fill in the Blank) content type but not when using the Drag a Text type.

Thank you for your help and support.

Best regards

Thank you for the feedback.

  1. I agree, we're planning to add the same type of retry to all questiontypes developed by Joubel, but we're not there yet.
  2. Ok, what are your reasons for not wanting them to go fullscreen? Afraid they might find their way back? They lose context provided outside the H5P? (I always want to learn as much as possible about H5P is being used)
  3. I see. Good feedback!

Hi, thank you for your reply.

With regards to the full screen button my exercise is delivered in a book style format and going full screen will lose the book feeling experience.

Another issue, I noticed that the Drag Text type is generating trailing spaces below the H5P created object (see picture attached). I'm not sure how to remove these spaces. Also, is there a way to control the size and font of the Drag Text object when displayed?

Best regards

I see. We will have to figure out a good solution for such scenarios. Right now the "book plugin" you're using could call getScore and getMaxScore to get the score info when next is pushed, but I guess you won't be able to bake that into the plugin?

Regarding the screenshot Drag Text is run inside an iframe and shouldn't be able to create such trailing spaces. Could you provide a link?


The reason for the spaces is the height attribute of the iframe tag (please, check the attached screenshot). Is there a way to control the height to prevent the large gap when using the Drag Text content type? I've manually adjusted the height to 492 and that was Okay. If you check the other objects there height is too large resulting in a very large gap between them. I have the feeling this caused when the dragable objects are forced below rather than on the right hand side of the screen!!

Thanks for your help

Do you use the full embed code or only the iframe part?

<iframe src="" width="1090" height="638" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe><script src="" charset="UTF-8"></script> 

Will result in the iframe resizing itself to fit the content inside it.

<iframe src="" width="1090" height="638" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe>

Will result in an iframe with a fixed size.
