Collecting data

Use variables to track any data in your piece that you wish to record. You can then send the values contained in variables to the database. For example, suppose you want to track the student's name, password, and score in a quiz. Use the following statements in a calculation icon in the Authorware piece:

Username := EntryText@"TypeFullname" 
Password := EntryText@"TypePassword" 
Score := TotalScore

The student's name and password—stored in the Username and Password variables—are taken from the student's responses to two text entry interactions set up in interaction icons named TypeFullname and TypePassword . The student's score—stored in the Score variable—is the sum of all interaction scores in the Authorware piece. See "System Variable" in the Authorware 5 Help Pages for more information about the EntryText and Username variables.
