authorware quiz

authorware quiz


I am a teacher. I like to use authorware to create a quiz to be used in a lan enviroment so that the results will be captured in a MS database. What is the simplest way to implement it? Please advise

RE: authorware quiz

The simplest way is to just write the data out in a text file (comma or tab or special character delimited) and then import it into a table in Acccess (I'm assuming that's the MS database you're working with).  

Otherwise a more difficult option is to use a third party tool like Datagrip or V12 database from Integration New Media.  I haven't actually used V12 so you'll have to look into that on your own but I've used Datagrip to read & write data to an Access database and it's worked pretty well--of course it requires you to learn SQL and you may have to install files on the users system (it requires either MS Access or the Access runtimes and/or DAO to be installed on the user's system).  

Another option is to use ODBC, and I've toyed with that in an Authorware class but it's not been an option (due to very restrictive IT policies) for any of my projects so far so I've never used it in an actual project.
