I want to write a lengthy test. I would like to use the shared object to store the students' answers and then print out a hard copy for school records.

I would have about 20 students taking the test at a time on 20 different computers. I am thinking about using a different name for each .sol file and manually collecting the files into one file to be opened later and printed. Is there any way to open the .sol file outside of flash? I realize I could load the file in an swf and print, but this could be even more tedious than what I had hoped.

I am the only teacher pursuing this in my school and funding is very limited and my time to learn additional software is also very limited. Any suggestions???
