Hello, I am attempting to move closer towards the paperless classroom using the Adobe Suite. I have created a student assessment rubric using a form that automatically calculates self assessment and teacher assessment scores and gives me updated responses etc. The next step is for the students to save this to their ePortfolio, however, I would like to be able to lock down the form before this step (eg after I have completed my assessment) so students cannot change either their own or my scores and comments. Apart from saving the doc as a jpeg, i can't quite work this out.*
You can either flatten the pages of the document or lock the document by applying a digital signature and choosing to disallow changes. The other option of simply setting the fields to read-only is not secure and can be defeated relatively easily, so it wouldn't be the best option for this.
For more information on creating a certified document, see Acrobat's help doc.
If this is LC Designer Form. You can use the <textfield name>.acess= "readOnly"; method to lock the forms fields.
Another option would be lock the fields with digital signature. Refer the recording for more details : http://my.adobeconnect.com/p4egyzsgnye/
