Classic is the version available since 2001, but updated yearly. There
is no login on the first page. Users are given a choice between "First
Time Users" which includes some introductory material and "Return
Users" which skips the introduction. Searchpath is in HTML. The
print out their quiz results with their name and submit these to their
instructor as proof of completion.
2. Searchpath with PHP
with PHP is basically the same as the version above but with some important differences.
Students have the option of logging in as "First Time Users (WMU Students)"
or "Return Users (WMU Students)." Students using these options must
enter their Western Michigan University student ID. There is also a "Guest"
option, which does not require logging in. Searchpath is in HTML, but in this
version its quizzes are coded in PHP.
who log in have the choice of either printing their quiz results with
their name, or they can email their quiz results to their professor.
You must have a server that is compatible with PHP and must set up a
database in order to use this version. With a database you gain both
the email function and can gather quiz results. If you attempt to use
this version without a database, neither the email function nor printing
out the quiz results with students' names will work. Please
note: We are not able to provide technical support.
