ABSTRACT

ONLINE TEST SYSTEM

Online test is the examination taken by using a computer. Online test is the form of database of multiple choice questions posted on the Internet with secured access. It is specially designed for instant results as the Internet continues to develop, it becomes clear that the medium has different requirements. Questions and answers are generally short and unpretentious just what the net demands. It is more preferred rather than paper-based test. Some of them are its rapid speed evaluation and convenient fixation of examination date

The project is divided into four modules.

1. Registration modules

Registration of the user who is intending to write the test by getting the username and password is developed in the registration module. After the registration, the user based on his profile can take the test on the desired date and topic.

2. Selection module

This module based on the user privilege sets the question paper for the user. there are three privileges. They are candidate, administrator and operator.

3. Questionnaire module

In this module after getting the access for the required area, the system provides the questions related to that area to the user. The questions are in the form of multiple-choice questions.

4. Score report module

In this module, the system generates the score for the questions taken by the candidate. User can report those scores to store in that data base or otherwise cancel them.

In online test, testing could be scheduled when it is convenient for the students, which also encourages students to increase the time management skills. After the tests are scored, the data can be easily downloaded into the database.

Software specifications

ASP, ORACLE, HTML, VbScript and with appropriate WEB SERVERE.

INTRODUCTION TO THE PROJECT

With high demands in technologies for the purpose of student assessment and on curriculum coverage within the classroom, teachers are in need often efficient manner in which to conduct non teaching activities without lessening their impact .one such activity includes test administration. To overcome this online test is the best method.

Online test is a examination taken by using a computer. Online test is the form of database of multiple-choice question posted on the Internet with secured access. Online test is specifically designed for instant result. As the Internet continues to develop, it becomes clear that the medium has different requirement.

Using sound psychometric techniques online test is able to create a presided measurement tool that fulfill three needs to discover what the user knows, what a user does not know and what he needs to know. Questions and answers are generally short and unpretentious.

There are certain reasons why people prefer online test rather than paper-based test. Some of them are its rapid speed evaluation and convenient fixation of examination dates.

Introduction to Online Test System

This project is an attempt to design and develop online test system for the student assessment; the project is divided into four modules.

1. The registration of the user who is intending to take the test by getting the username and password is developed in the registration module. After the registration, the user based on his profile can take the test on the desired date.

2. The section module based on the user privilege sets the question paper for the user. There are three privileges. They are candidate, administrator, and operator.

3. In the Questionnaire module after getting access for the require area. The system provides the questions related to that area to the user. The questions are in the form of multiple-choice questions.

4. In the score report module, the system generates the score for the questions taken by the candidate. The user can report those scores to store in the database or otherwise cancel them.

In Online Test, testing could be scheduled when it is convenient for the student, which also encourages students to increase the time management skills. After the tests are scored, the data can be easily downloaded into the database.

Proposed System

Full on-line data entry with online validations on field and referential checking, context sensitive makes the registration of the user information easy and comfortable for the user. The goal of the system is to bring down the work load with the increased efficiency and to speed up the activities in testing activities.
User – friendly screens to the processes in the system with different access paths to the different users are to ensure the easier and secured access to different users.

  • Availability of the exam reports immediately after the examination is over
  • An integrated normalized relational database will be maintained for the entire system.
  • This system provides the facility for quick access of the data from the database and updating of the information to the database.
