I am new to using an editable PDF form and want to use one for my lab class. I am able to create the form and I would like to put a check box in place, so that only I can access with a password to indicate that the student has completed that particular portion of the lab. I understand that you would need a java script, but I have no idea of how to create this script.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Do you want this to be a minor formality that anyone could easily bypass, or a hacker-proof secure thing (that might be used as academic proof, for example)? Bear in mind students often have the time, skills and motivation to hack even quite complicated things.
Thank you for your reply. While I will be in class with them, this is for a network and security course and students are quite resourceful. I don't want anything that the students could easily bypass.
What would you recommend to use with the PDF form?
Nothing. This doesn't belong in the PDF form. It's like handing the student a piece of paper with a space for them to fill in their own grade.
Thanks for all your advice and help. As an aside, could you send me the script that you said was a minor formality so I can have a look at it.
