An exercise of fewer selection
I think it would be best to be working with the Drag-and-Drop feature, but if anyone sees something that I'm missing, please feel free to steer me in the right direction.
I need to begin with a list of about fifty words on the left (A Column), and will need the users to select about twenty to begin with for the first exercise. (This is a SUPER-ROUGH visual demonstration...once I get some traction I'll make some actual slides...)
I need the user to select a few (actual # tbd) of the blue icons, and/or drag them over to the grey squares.
Then (as if it wasn't already stacking up), I would need to clear the selection of blue squares with those chosen the first time.
I think I will be able to take the "final" results and move it to a printable format, but that's the last step...lol
This can be thought of as a preference exercise, starting with a large list of terms, which users will need to determine which things apply to them, and which terms do not apply to them. Afterwards, I will walk them through a process of narrowing down the first column from twenty to about half that.
Another way of looking at it would be this;
Here is a list of the alphabet.
Choose your favorite ten letters. (Ok, now the remaining sixteen go away)
Now you have your (new) list of ten letters and you have to choose your favorite five letters from the ten you've chosen.
Lastly I will create a printable page of their final selection. That's not the hard part ;)
If anyone has any advice on ways of visualizing the process, I would greatly appreciate the input. I keep coming up empty.
