$online.exe Options

In setting up an on-line test, several options are available:

The options are set via the control file. Explore the following combinations of options:

  1. view the control files for quizzes,
  2. try the quizzes (quizzes a, quiz b, quiz c and quiz d all contain the same three questions),
  3. look at the log files for the quizzes (the log files record the submissions on the fly),
  4. marks display of each quiz (the marks display displays the marks distribution for the quiz on the fly).

Access instructions

Since this Web site is opened for the general public to try, some of the ID's may have been used to submit a test. If that is the case, tests that accept single submission from a student will not allow you to re-submit.

So, just pick another ID to log on. Once in a while I will go in there to re-activate the ID's. Have fun!
