Q. Can I have the Full Builder, Student Builder,
CHALLENGE FRAP and/or Demo Builder all installed on one machine at once?
A. Perhaps but there are likely to be
problems. Make sure you have only ONE version of the CHALLENGE builder on
your machine at a time. This includes CHALLENGE FRAP, which is a modified
version of the CHALLENGE Builder. Uninstall any versions of the Builder before applying another
The CHALLENGE builder and the CHALLENGE player
can co-exist on the same machine without problems, although it's probably
unnecessary as the builder has a player mode.
Q. Can FRAP files be used in the CHALLENGE
A. No, and there is no reason for them to be
used in the player. FRAP files are both constructed and assessed in CHALLENGE
Q. Where does the student tracking appear
when viewing a report generated by the CHALLENGE Player?
A. This is in the Student Report file, produced
by the report or end design templates. Only those with the full builder
installed (usually the tutors) can decrypt these reports. The tracking
information is appended at the bottom. You can elect whether or not to
print this section out to students.
Q. Can the CHALLENGE programs be run directly
from a CD-ROM without installation on the computer concerned?
not initially designed for this implementation, both the student builder and player can be used this
way. It needs the raw executable
and associated files to be placed on the CD-ROM. I've now included these as a special zip
file within the Massey release.
Q. How can I get nodes on the top bar of the
CHALLENGE Player when working through a scenario
A. Simply make sure the node is on the first
level underneath the root node and the "show this node on the left in the
player" (under the extended tab) is NOT ticked. Providing it is
wearing the Main, List, Assessment or Report templates, it should show up on the
Q. Can it be used with WebCT?
Links can be made from CHALLENGE to WebCT and
WebCT can be used to deliver scenarios and FRAP forms to students.
CHALLENGE is not a
server-based product though, like WebCT. Students cannot run it just in
their browsers. They need to run the program from their own computers,
then email you (or upload) their results files. See the page on CHALLENGE
vrs WebCT for more information
