Flash Questions

Starting with version 3.8, the Impression Content Creation Tool provides support for "Flash Questions", question-type storyboards that use a custom .SWF to present the question to the student and offer unique interaction mechanisms for answering the question.

There is no explicit support for Flash Question storyboards in the BCF.  Runtime authors must work with content media developers as they would for Flash Object storyboards to determine the communication mechanisms necessary for proper integration of flash questions into the Runtime Engine.  The FlashObjectPlayer can be used as a starting point for loading and presenting flash questions.

Because the CCT cannot determine what completion states are applicable to the flash question, fields specific to the Extended Custom Messages remediation type (usually only available to the Matching storyboard types) are available. Per-response messages are not supported for flash questions.
