IMHO, I agree with @mgarcia that this feels less intuitive, particularly about the colors.
The new icons are not good. Numeric and multiple-choice icons seem to be swapped from each other (not to mention misspelled). Embed makes sense with the HTML <> tags, but I had no idea what the icon here is showing me. It looks like you’re trying to wrap text around an image, which is not what embedding content is… The centering on the Essay question type is off-putting… How about a first paragraph indent and the full justification for the rest of the lines, like essays actually look like? Graphing looks nothing like a graph… I’m just plain confused by these choices!
What’s more, I want to have all the options available to me ASAP, without having to click between content or questions. 90% of the the Formatives that I create are uploads of content that I’ve collaborated on with my team to create a DOC or PDF that I can print, then we create the Formative for it. If I want to add an audio introduction or a video lesson to precede it, I don’t want to have to keep clicking around. Less is more.
I do like that the new option’s + is actually labeled as “add an item”, but the text is a bit far from the icon, it feels like…
