What is the name for the questions in Microsoft certification exams that have all of the answers on the left hand column & then you drag the answers over to the right hand column & put them in the correct order?

I need to know the name or term for what these types of questions are called.

I think that they are simply called Drag & Drop and this video calls them that:

You could also be describing the "Build-list and reorder" question format shown on this page.

As others have said Microsoft calls them "Drag-and-Drop" questions, but from an educational perspective they are Multiple Correct Answer format (or MCA's). Another way of testing deeper knowledge but using simple question structures. They work particularly well when, for example, there are five questions, all of which look like answer "X" will fit but "X" is only correct in three instances.  In the online example of MCA's you can limit "X" to three uses and the candidate has to work out where those are.

I was going to post an MCA link but there really are very few.
