Building in homework assignments!

We are working on a phone skills course... we would like to have one of the assignments be to create a phone script customized to the company (Just as we do in the live workshop).  

Has anyone been able to build in anything in Storyline 360 that would make the participants submit a homework assignment (in our case a script) before moving on in the course.  Of course, as you can well imagine, it can't be just anything, it would need to meet the specs required for a proper script.  How might this be done?  The one way I thought of is having the participant submit their assignment via email to the instructor... the instructor reviewing it... and if it meets the criteria, then giving the participant a code to enter into the course to continue.  

I'm looking for something that wouldn't require the instructor to have to be involved at this point.  Any ideas?  Thanks in advance!

Can you clarify what your mean by "it would need to meet the specs required for a proper script"? It may be possible to automate some parts of the script checking, for example,

It may be possible to automate some parts of the script checking, for example, this tutorial shows how to check for the inclusion of keywords and phrases in a text entry field. But I suspect that you would still need the instructor to review the homework for some things, as JavaScript isn't any good for evaluating more subjective things.

Regarding the possibility that users may share the unlock code... you could always create a list of acceptable codes and assign those to individuals when reviewing their homework. But that does just make more work for the instructors!
