there are no words where do I get the names to drag?

  • The drag and drop quiz starts on slide three and providing one term at a time in the upper right corner to drop into the open boxes. If you do not see a term in a green box in the uppr right corner you may have to update Flash on your computer. Flash may is no longer supported on Apple devices.We are working to upgrade these Flash learning objects.

No next button

  • This learning object was built using Flash which is no longer supported by many browsers. I got this one to work using Chrome as my browser. Each new term appears in the upper right hand corner, after dragging the terms from the upper right into the open spots you should then see the next button.

Excellent tool...I accidentally rated it as poor, not understanding how to enter the stars.

The 4x objective answer is incorrect...should be "40" but the program corrects the student, saying it is "50." Could this be changed, please?
