I've had some support requests asking for help to get Practice Paper working within Moodle. It should be a matter of uploading the three files and then linking to the main .html file, but there may be further issues depending on your Moodle setup. Issues relating to whether .swf are allowed to be displayed and suchlike.

Anyway - this is how to add a Practice Paper to your Moodle - and you can test it out at http://www.cg-scorm....e/view.php?id=5

Attached File  practicepaper_moodle1_generate.png (39.29K)
Number of downloads: 2
Generate your Practice Paper - note you generate three files - all of which are required.

Attached File  practicepaper_moodle2_addresource.png (11.7K)
Number of downloads: 0
Select 'Add a resource' > 'Link to a file or web site'.

Attached File  practicepaper_moodle3_chooseupload.png (6.76K)
Number of downloads: 0
Add the details of your resource (as usual in Moodle) and then select 'Choose or upload a file'.

Attached File  practicepaper_moodle4_upload.png (12.67K)
Number of downloads: 0
Now upload all three files - your .html, your .swf and your .js files.

Attached File  practicepaper_moodle5_choose.png (21.25K)
Number of downloads: 0
Select the .html file - this is the file that controls the whole online application.

Attached File  practicepaper_moodle6_newwindow.png (6.02K)
Number of downloads: 0
Select 'open in new window' and then scroll down and save the resource.

You should then be able to access the Practice Paper within Moodle. Moodle will display the .html file, which in turn calls the .js and .swf file to display everything. There is some very complex coding behind Practice Paper, but it all does work really effectively with Moodle.

Incidentally, if you have more than one exercise within one course, you'll notice that the .js file is always called the same (practicepaper.js). This is because the .js file never changes - so you can use the same file for every single exercise, whether you have one or many more.

Do post if you need any support it getting it to work. Moodle can be fiddly to setup initially with all the plugins that you sometimes need to enable, but it is so worthwhile.
