Day 18. Advanced Techniques: Online Test... > Survey and Testing Systems

Survey and Testing Systems

I've spent hours setting up online testing courses for university faculty and government employees. Entire businesses are founded on providing distance education and certification. If you work to build internal (intranet) sites, eventually you too will find yourself in the position of creating some sort of online test, survey, or other training materials.

In some cases this is just a matter of creating a few HTML forms that e-mail the student's answers to the professor or save the results for the professor to grade later. Generating these HTML forms repeatedly gets to be a bit tedious, and can quickly become a hassle to modify and maintain. A better way to handle the task is to set up an extensible system where the HTML is separate from the questions being asked.
