making exames

    Mar 05 2012 | 5:17 pm
    Hello. I am new here so please be patient. ;-) I wonder if it possible to make standalone exames for ear training. Students should answer by clicking some boxes (for instance, listening to an audio example they should answer if it was a minor or major third) and finally the results should be saved somehow. The exame should have both audio and picture examples but answering should be just by checking radios, boxes or dropdowns.
    Thanks a lot.

      Hello my3a,
      Yes this could all be done but there are a lot of little bits. A question as involved as that would be difficult to answer on the forum. Rather it would be better to break it all up into little bits.
      Can you make the audio examples? Can you hit a button so as the audio files play and an image appears? Can you umenus or radioboxes to store optional answers? I might then store the answers in coll and when a user chooses you could use and or udp.send./receive to send the entire coll someplace.
      It can be done but it would involve some experimentation in your side. Try to do the bits you can and if you get stuck at any particular stage you could post a problem specific to that part.
      For now look at polybuffer~, fpic, unmenus, radiogroup, coll and
      I have never done this myself but I think this is where I would start.
      Hope it helps.

      Thanks. Examples would be (just on the beginning) pure wave files, with player. The pictures are normal tiff. The third question is unclear.. :-(
      Your answer is helpful. I will start with these you have mentioned.

      Question 3 is about using the [radiogroup] or [umenu] object as checkboxes for the answers - the number of the item selected could be given a storage address in a coll using the [prepend] object. When the user wants they can choose to dump the entire coll someplace of your choosing - possibly over the net or to a local server. This is what I would try at least.
