Another late one, but better late than never, right? This has been yet another nutty week, and originally I had wanted to brush up on my Linguistics degree and include some phonetics or morphology, but instead you’ll get to see some semantics in action! I may come back to this challenge at a later time and make another contribution, but we’ll see what happens!
This week’s challenge was to build a spelling or vocabulary quiz that could leverage user interactivity. While I wouldn’t consider my result much of a quiz (in length), it gets the job done.
After reading 30 Incorrectly Used Words That Can Make You Look Bad by Jeff Haden, I was inspired to create a vocabulary quiz, using some of the terms identified. I created a free-form drag and drop interaction utilizing sentences with blank shapes. The user would need to drag the correct term from the bottom of the page to the correct placement in the corresponding sentences. This would test the user’s ability to distinguish between the appropriate use of various terms.
