Explanation of the tool

Four empty areas are displayed on screen with increasing intensity of color. Below the empty areas are four words that are related to each other. Put the words in order by dragging them into the empty areas.

The increasing richness of the color of the boxes is a visual-aid for the increasing intensity of the words' meaning from top to bottom.

For example, these 4 words arranged by intensity would be:
1) okay
2) good
3) super
4) amazing
