I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
