Hi All,

We touched briefly on the idea of Adaptive testing during the conference a couple of weeks ago (and it was good seeing those of you who could make it). Since then, a real-world interest has arisen here and I’ve been exploring a bit. I’m working on a proof of concept prototype just using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division problems, with each type of problem in a library and showing one problem part at a time conditional on completion of the previous part in hopes that I can on the fly change which library is being loaded depending on how the user did on the previous question. A challenge I am facing right up front is whether or not the &EXT functions can be used to access these problem parts which exist inside library items.  Any thoughts?  Am I totally barking up the wrong tree here? Any adivce?

Thank you,
