We have a long and ever-changing error list for different departments. The list is longer than a quiz page, and it changes sometimes. Some may have 2 levels.
In a quarterly quiz:
Given a situation, a student would click to choose multiple errors from the list. I have a Flash with scrolling menu that reads the data from XML. Click on an item from the scrolling list to make a selection. Usually there are 4 questions randomly selected from a library of 6 to 8. Each question has the same list.
I’m thinking about migrating to Lectora based approach. I can’t use the drop down list in Lectora because the list is too long and it needs to allow multiple selections. I can build the checkbox with layout that works with the screen but it will need manual update when there are changes.
Type the above out in a text editor like notepad. Change the file extension from .txt to all files. Save this as myCSS.css.
Add an HTML Extension at the root level of your lesson. Choose type: Cascading Style Sheet. Browse for file and select the myCSS.css file you just made.
Now add the class ‘makeScroll’ without the quotes to any answer text box you need to make scrollable. You do this by selecting the text box – click properties – then in the appearance tab you click the little down arrow icon in the bottom right. Add the class makeScroll in the CSS popup.
Personally I’m not a big fan of doing this and would only use it when rewording or re-arranging things isn’t possible.
Regarding your original question. Using JSON would be an awesome option however getting it to work with the built in questions in Inspire would be a total nightmare. It would be a huge move forward for this program to incorporate the use of JSON data to populate questions.
I’m not sure I understand. You can do the above for each of the choices. Are you looking to make the whole question, including the checkboxes, scroll together? Basically have the question in a scrolling textbox?
