Storing QuizMaker results in a database
Mar 30, 2012
I am an ICT teacher at a school, and have created a solution to save all results to a database automatically after the quiz. I am using a MS SQL Server database, but it could easily be adapted to a MS Access or other database.
We have already taken hundreds of tests, and all results are stored, up to individual answers. The web interface enables you to download results per quiz, per student or per class in CSV format.
All source code is open sourced, and downloadable on http://code.google.com/p/quizbaker/
I am hoping for collaboration from many of you to improve the software. Email me if you like to cooperate on the project.
I have looked at joep's original solution in .NET and have created my own in classic ASP. See http://www.articulate.com/forums/articulate-quizmaker/4317-quiz-database-instructions-code.html
I plan on supporting MS Access, MySQL and port the version to PHP. One of the hardest problems was capturing the user name of the student, which is now done by forcing the student to use Internet Explorer, the only browser that sends the domain user automatically.
