I work in behavioral health for the Georgia Dept of Juvenile Justice. I am developing a program to train security officers to complete the mental health screening each youth receives when youth enter either a detention center or long term facility. The test will involve students reviewing 3 scenarios that they will print out as part of the lesson material and then complete screenings on each scenario. I've got two problems I can't get my head around.
First I want students to be able to fill out their name and employee ID # on the intial screen and then use the name and ID# on a certificate at the end of the training if students achieve a passing grade. Note that at this point DJJ does not subscribe to a Learning Management System, so the entire project has to be self-contained. Is there anyway to link a field on the certificate page with the data entered on the sign-in page?
Secondly I have a scoring problem. The screening identifies youth who are either at heighted risk of suicide/self-harm or who need a mental health assessment. Youth who endorse any item will be referred for a mental health assessment. But youth endorsing certain Warning items will be placed on Level 3 (constant line of sight supervision). Youth who endorse Caution items will be placed on Level 2 (Fifteen minute checks). If a youth endorses any Warning item, the youth is placed on Level 3. If the youth endorses any Caution item and no Warning items, the youth is placed on Level 2. If the youth does not endorse any items, the youth is placed on Routine observation. Each item is simply a true/false statement (Are you thinking of harming yourself now). Each scenario provides the information needed to complete the screening, so the True/False scheme works. But there are there are two types of correct answers, Warning items and Caution items. The final question in the quiz is to assign the correct level of observation. The quiz system in Captivate will do a fine job letting me see if students answer the questions correctly, but doesn't allow students to see the number of "Caution" and the number of "Warning" items endorsed in a scenario. In the actual data base application, the application automatically totals the number of Cautions and Warning at the end. I need a report page at the end of the scenario that totals how many Caution and how many Warning items have been endorsed. Is this beyond Captivate's capability? Ideas? Thanks in advance.
