I am unfortunately up against a tight deadline for this
project and thus have to use our current mechanism (Breeze
Training) to do it....
I am putting together a certification exam that needs to be
available online. I'm well aware of the security/cheating
opportunities available via this type of exam but my company won't
pay for a testing center to ensure integrity. So....here's the
- 50 questions, mostly multiple choice but perhaps if I can
get the basic functionality I need working then I'll use other
- 60 minute time limit
I've looked into using the following methods to develop the
1. From scratch using Flash. This way won't work for me
because I am not familiar with developing AICC content with
framesets and the like.
2. Captivate 1.1....why bother when it is basically the same
as Breeze Presenter, but with an added chance for something to go
wrong with the tracking : )
3. Flash Quiz Templates - my limited testing has resulted in
only a pass/fail being tracked per user. No tracking of the
individual questions seems to be working on Breeze wih this
template (yes, I followed the whitepaper on it).
4. Breeze Presenter/PPT...as much as I hate to develop a
large quiz this way, it seems to be the only way at this point
under the timeframe I'm working within. Unfortunately though I need
to display the elapsed time on the user's screen while they take
So I'm not sure how to go about this. I will try to see if I
can just create instance variables/properties at a global level if
I have to and then just calculate off of those by placing a timer
swf on each slide, but I'm not sure if that will work and it seems
like a hackjob way of doing things even if it did. Any
thoughts/advice is greatly appreciated.
