Study Guide Features
One way to alleviate the problem of non-secured code is to let the web server computer get the submitted answers from the users and manipulate it via a CGI (Common Gateway Interface) program. Through the use of CGI, the graded assignments are returned to the students dynamically, or "on-the-fly". This feature of the study guide is referred to as dynamic on-line testing.
Today, there are many programs written specifically for on-line assessment, on-line assignment, or on-line testing applications   . The CGI program that the CHEM 0010 Web-based study guide uses, $online.exe, is written by the author, . $online.exe is unique in that it is used in tandem with the dynamic display of student marks.
Access to on-line testing in the Web-based study guide is via the "Access Assignments" button on the navigational button bar.
