ABSTRACT

Automatic Test Generator is a program that automatically generates multiple-choice Computer Architecture tests and handles the submission/marking of results. Login is required either by a student or a lecturer. Each client has different functions available. Students have the ability to login, take a test, submit the test, and view previous test results. Lecturers have the ability to login, generate random test questions, store these in a database, send login passwords to students, and make tests available to students, correct tests, and store results.

The project has been planned to be having the view of distributed architecture, with centralized storage of the database. The application for the storage of the data has been planned. Using the constructs of MS-SQL Server and all the user interfaces have been designed using the ASP.Net technologies. The database connectivity is planned using the “SQL Connection” methodology. The standards of security and data protective mechanism have been given a big choice for proper usage. The application takes care of different modules and their associated reports, which are produced as per the applicable strategies and standards that are put forwarded by the administrative staff.

The entire project has been developed keeping in view of the distributed client server computing technology, in mind. The specification has been normalized up to 3NF to eliminate all the anomalies that may arise due to the database transaction that are executed by the general users and the organizational administration. The user interfaces are browser specific to give distributed accessibility for the overall system. The internal database has been selected as MS-SQL server 200.The basic constructs of table spaces, clusters and indexes have been exploited to provide higher consistency and reliability for the data storage. The MS-SQL server 200 was a choice as it provides the constructs of high-level reliability and security. The total front end was dominated using the ASP.Net technologies. At all proper levels high care was taken to check that the system manages the data consistency with proper business rules or validations. The database connectivity was planned using the latest “SQL Connection” technology provided by Microsoft Corporation. The authentication and authorization was crosschecked at all the relevant stages. The user level accessibility has been restricted into two zones namely.

INTRODUCTION TO PROJECT

Online Web Examination is a program that automatically generates multiple-choice Computer Architecture tests and handles the submission/marking of results. Login is required for the student. Each client has different functions available. Students have the ability to login, take a test, submit the test, and view previous test results. Admin can create exam types, create exams and assign the exam date to the students in order of the student exam preferred date and he can generate the reports.

PURPOSE OF THE PROJECT

Online Web Examination is a program that creates the tests and he submission/marking of results. Login is required for a student. Each client has different functions available. Students have the ability to login, take a test, submit the test, and view previous test results. Admin has the ability to store the results in a database, send exam key word to students, and make tests available to students, correct tests, and store results.

PROBLEM IN EXISTING SYSTEM

2.      It is limited to a single system.

3.      It is less user-friendly.

4.      It is having lots of manual work (Manual system does not mean that you are working with pen and paper, it also include working on spread sheets and other simple software's).

5.      The present system is very less secure.

6.      It is unable to generate different kinds of report.

7.      It doesn’t have the mail feature.

SOLUTION OF THESE PROBLEMS

The development of the new system contains the following activities, which try to automate the entire process keeping in view of the database integration approach.

The development of the new system contains the following activities, which try to automate the entire process keeping in view of the database integration approach.

·         User friendliness is provided in the application with various controls.

·         The system makes the overall project management much easier and flexible.

·         It can be accessed over the Internet.

·         Various classes have been used to provide mail feature.

·         There is no risk of data mismanagement at any level while the project development is under process.

·         Report generation feature is provided to generate different kinds of reports.

·         It provides high level of security using different protocols like https etc.

PROPOSED SYSTEM

To debug the existing system, remove procedures those cause data redundancy, make navigational sequence proper. To provide information about audits on different level and also to reflect the current work status depending on organization/auditor or date. To build strong password mechanism.

NEED FOR COMPUTERIZATION

We all know the importance of computerization. The world is moving ahead at lightening speed and every one is running short of time. One always wants to get the information and perform a task he/she/they desire(s) within a short period of time and too with amount of efficiency and accuracy. The application areas for the computerization have been selected on the basis of following factors:

·         Minimizing the manual records kept at different locations.

·         There will be more data integrity.

·         Facilitating desired information display, very quickly, by retrieving information from users.

·         Facilitating various statistical information which helps in decision-making?

·         To reduce manual efforts in activities that involved repetitive work.

·         Updating and deletion of such a huge amount of data will become easier.

STUDY OF THE SYSTEM

GUI’S

In the flexibility of the uses the interface has been developed a graphics concept in mind, associated through a browses interface. The GUI’S at the top level have been categorized as

  1. Administrative user interface
  2. The operational or generic user interface

The administrative user interface concentrates on the consistent information that is practically, part of the organizational activities and which needs proper authentication for the data collection. The interfaces help the administrations with all the transactional states like Data insertion, Data deletion and Date updation along with the extensive data search capabilities.

The operational or generic user interface helps the users upon the system in transactions through the existing data and required services. The operational user interface also helps the ordinary users in managing their own information helps the ordinary users in managing their own information in a customized manner as per the assisted flexibilities.

NUMBER OF MODULES

The system after careful analysis has been identified to be presented with the following modules:

The modules involved are:              

  • Administrator
  • Student
  • Reports
  • Authentication

Administrator:-

The administrator is the organization user of this project. Any body except admin cannot enter into this page. The admin can give Keyword to student to write the exam & gives privileges that which exam they can access.  The admin can create new Test Type and new tests and creates new question and he assign no marks to each question, and he can modifies the test types, tests and question already entered by himself. Admin can assign the tests to the students based on the student request for the particular exam. Whenever he assign a test to student he can generate a key to that exam and sends that key to the student. The administrator has all the information about all the students & about all the Exams and Questions.

Students:-

This module contains all the information about the student. In this personal information student can change his password and he can update his personal information if any modification are there like address change he can do that modifications. Student can go inside the login and select the test type that means which test he want to write and he can request the date of the exam to write. Whenever the admin assign the test to student he send a key to student. Student enters the key before start the exam on the particular date he requested and give the answers to the question in that question paper. After completion of the exam they will get the complete information about the question which they have written how many are right and wrong and how many question he attempted etc.

Reports:-

This module contains all the information about the reports generated by the admin based on the particular student, particular exam.

Authentication:-

This module contains all the information about the authenticated user. User without his username and password can’t enter into the login if he is only the authenticated user then he can enter to his login and he can see the quotation and give the quotation for the particular products.
