Looking at the letters, note that "I" and "J" look very similar. This came up for a student take a quiz and follow-up by the instructor to me.
I have included the instructor comments below:
Here’s some usability observations from the Bridges matching quizzes. Just some thoughts. I think the ideal would be if students could draw a line between words and definitions, or if they could drag and drop. I know that’s probably not possible.
The sans-serif font for matching quizzes causes confusion between “I” with “J.” Please see the forwarded email below. I looked at the matching quiz and have to agree that I and J look very similar, which can cause students to click the unintended item.
Perhaps using a sans-serif font for the Matching can help?
Right now, the vocabulary choices are far apart and vertically separated from the definitions. Is there a way to make it so things are aligned horizontally, not vertically? Maybe just using a two column layout?
Is there a way to gray out matches that have already been selected? That way, students don’t accidentally pick the same letter twice.
