Welcome to the home of the quiz and test web application
q u i z z. This is a comprehensive perl based solution
for online surveys, course tests, quiz-based games or web polls.
q u i z zfeatures several types of questions:
Single choice questions
The user can choose one answer from a list of choices.
There is no limitation of possible choices but only one
answer is the correct one and must be selected by the user
to achieve success.
Multiple choice questions
The user can choose one or more possible answers from a list of choices.
There is no limitation of possible choices. One or more answers are
correct. All correct answers must be selected by the user to succeed.
Optional-Multiple choice questions
This is a variation of multiple choice questions(see above), but
the user must no select all correct answers, a minimum (as defined in
the config) is enough to succeed. E.g. there are 5 choices and 3 of them
are correct, and it is defined that 2 are enough. If the user then
selects only 2 of the 3 correct answers he will gain the points.
The user needs to enter free-text in a text input box. The text must
match a defined perl regular expression. E.g. If the expression is:
'/leipzig.*1989/' and the users answers to the question "when and where
started the peaceful 'revolution' in east germany?" - "In Leipzig 1989"
then he will succeed. See the sample config/demo to learn more about this.
The user must fill the hole inside a free text. Every field must be correctly
filled out. It is possible to use regular expressions for valid field
President said, 'we will the '.
No limitation of the number of questions per quiz or the number
of choices per question.
Counters are decrementing a counter, the time counter starts with the
maximum of the seconds and the points counter starts with the maximum of
available points. If the counter reaches 0, the application proceeds to
the next question and marks this one as 'wrong' (visually shown as 'timeout').
Please note that this timing feature only exists for cosmetic purposes,
or exactly: force the user to keep in mind that the time is limited.
The application uses internaly an extra counter. This is possible because
Access control via cookies
You can choose to control how users can
access the quiz. It is for example possible to configure that every user
can access the quiz only once, or you could define that one particular user
coming from one particular ip address can access it only once. Of course
it is also possible to completely turn cookies of.
Very detailed and sophisticated result statistics at the end of the
quiz. The user can see exactly what he did wrong and can really learn
something. The administrator can view the statistic for any user at
any later time while the user itself can only see his own statistic
and only right after he finished the quiz.
Configurable best-of listing on the main page. You can define how many
users are visible in the best-of list. If you click on any user you
can see the result summary of his quiz. The result, which, btw, is also
shown on the statistics page, shows the success rate in percent,
the time he took and the achieved score.
Uses HTML templates
All HTML output is printed to the browser using templates. You can
customize the application to match your website design without changing
the application itself. This way you can fully integrate q u i z z
into your website.
Data storage uses GDBM
Results and statistics are stored in GDBM
database files. GDBM comes with your perl installation, so no external
database is required to run the application, the data will be stored
right on the webserver.
You can use the free tool DBTOOL
(compiled with gdbm support) for maintenance of the data files. DBTOOL
is available for most unix flavors or as source code.
Open source q u i z z is free software, free as of "free speech". It is licensed
artistic license as perl itself.
