On Screen Tasks

Click on your chosen task below you may either run or save the file. If you clicked run the installation screen will appear, or if you click save, you may save the file to a destination of your choice for later installation.


Installing the tasks

If you have saved the exe files to your computer, double click on the exe file and the installation screen will appear, run through the on screen instructions.

Some of the tasks require you to setup a results folder, please take a note of the directory as you will need this later to look up results. You may change the results directory to a server of your choice if you wish all the installations (candidates answers) to go into the one folder/files.

Results Folder

The default location for the results folder is: C:\Program Files\CCEA Innovative Results

In this location or the location which you installed the results folder at you will find three types of files (see below). The results have been saved in three formats for you convenience:

  • An access database - invovative_main.mdb
  • An excel file - result.csv
  • A html page -report.htm

You may open either of these to view the candidates’ results.
