I had an existing client ask me about the possibility of building an online quiz.
I am fairly adept at working "inside" Flash, but always run into problems when trying to export data "from" Flash anywhere else.
I am also trying to figure out if Flash is the best application to build this quiz (I see other possible apps like Captivate, but don't know if they are necessary for what I am trying to do).
WHAT I NEED TO DO:
I need to create a LOGIN screen to attach the final text score to an individual.
Create (50) separate screens for 50 questions with multiple answers for each (simple enough) with submit buttons once the answer(s) are chosen.
Each time an answer is submitted it has a certain "weight" toward the total score (which I am guessing that I could track into a variable inside Flash?)
When the test is complete all I need to do is send that Person's Name/TOTAL SCORE to a database.
Is this something best accomplished using FLASH?
it's something easily within flash'es capabilities.
Here is a tutorial which teaches you step by step of creating flash quiz .
I can't speak for other software tools, but it is something that Flash can do, and it would not necessarily require creating separate screens for each question. The design could work with a data reference (built-in data array(s), text ot xml file, or a server-side database) and dynamically create each screen in the same space as you advance thru the quiz.
