Can Authorware or Director be used to create a dynamic online examination?


I am really an web developer but I have developed an elearning Intranet that streams flash video content to end users via our company Intranet.

What I am looking for is some advice on the best way forward for creating an online examination that is basically set from data pulled from sql server 2000. I have applications such as Authorware 7 and Director 8. Are any of these applications capable of creating a dynamic examination? When I say dynamic, I mean if I change the data in the 'Number of Questions' Field in the database from 10 to 15, I want to have my application respond accordingly? In other words I am trying to create an application that dynamically sets its own number of questions based on whats pulled from the underlying datasource.

I trust this will make sense to the experts. I'm basically just needing advice on what tools I need to create such an application.

Did you check out Hotscripts? There should be some open source application that can help you out with such a product or a derivative of that?
