Enthuware: Deletes answers while klicking on "previous"

Hi all,

I am currently thinking about a SCWCD exam simulator. I used to work with Whizlabs for SCJP and today I had a closer look at Enthuwares exam simulator. I downloaded the trial version and started the "sample test".

I tried Enthuware because I work with Linux and Whizlabs does not provide a Linux native version of their simulator. Since Enthuware uses a jar file, this meets my requirements.

But I faced a problem when I already answered a question and moved to the next question, the answers of the previous question will disappear if I want to go a step back with the "previous" button.
That is a bad thing, this remebers me while taking SCJP... I couldn't go back without deleting my answers (especially drag&drop)... but that's another problem...

Another thing I want to know is, if you get rated with the full version of Enthuware SCWCD. You get 14 questions with the trial. But you have only the possibility to move forward and backward to the questions. Theres no possibility to say "grade" and get your summary of correct/incorrect questions.

I suppose this is done in the full version, isn't it?

Btw, this "previous"-problem also exists while using Windows.

Thanks for any kind of information.

Patrick

Hi Patrick,
Thanks for trying JWebPlus. Regarding the problems that you are facing ..

1. We have tested the simulator on several platforms and we really haven't seen the issue that you have mentioned with the "Previous" button. Just to confirm, I downloaded the trial version again and it does indeed keep all the answers, including for Drag and Drop types. Can you please let me know the platform that you are using? Also, if possible, please email me the files that it has created in the works folder (you must have specified this folder when you first opened the ETS file.) as support@enthuware.com This will really help us identify and fix the issue.

2. You can grade your test any time by clicking on "Review" button on the bottom (this will take you to the review screen) and then "Evaluate Test" button. This feature is available in trial version as well. Is this what you were looking for?

thank you,
Paul.

Hi Paul,

thank you for your help.

I am using Ubuntu 7.04 and the following Java version:



I took a video to show you how it looks like on my machine. But it seems not to be Linux-dependent. Because it's the same with Windows XP and Java 6.

Maybe it's a problem with Java6? I can't see a review button on the bottom as well.

Here is the Video.

Thanks for your help,
Patrick

If you need the files from the works folder, just let me know:

Thanks for your efforts, Patrick. I got your problem. When you right clicked on the SAMPLE TEST, you selected the second, "Open" option instead of the first, "Take this test" option. The Open option only shows you the details of the test. Some people use this option when they don't want to take the questions in a test format. Here, you can just attempt a question and click "Evaluate" to see the answer of that question. There is no test in progress so no answers are saved.

Please use "Take this test" option to take it in a regular test format. It will save your answers, allow you to go back and forth, allow you to pause the test (if you want to take it next day) and you can evaluate the whole test giving you a comprehensive score with section wise breakup.

HTH,
Paul.

Hi Paul,

thanks for your help. Now it works as I expected it. I didn't know about that "right klick thing" on sample test, that's why I was a little bit confused.

Thanks,
Patrick
