INTERNET BASED LESSON AND TEST DELIVERY, AUTOMATIC GRADING AND RECORD KEEPING SYSTEM

Omer Farook, Chandra R. Sekhar, Jai P. Agrawal, Ashfaq Ahmed and Michael Holtz Purdue University Calumet

ABSTRACT

The paper describes the “Internet Based Lesson and Test Delivery, Automatic Grading and Record Keeping System”. This system is conceived and designed as part of the Senior Design Project of Electrical Engineering Technology curriculum during a two-semester course offering. These two courses are the capstone courses in Electrical Engineering Technology curriculum offered in 7th and 8th semester. This project and similar projects provides the student a unique opportunity to design and integrate the knowledge and skills acquired through number of different courses.

The paper expounds in detail, the features from user’s perspectives and software design methodology. The system uses the HTML language as the GUI interface for users. All the data is passed using CGI forms and the Perl scripting language[1,2,3,5]. All necessary data is kept in one database with 5 tables within that database that holds information on the users, lessons, grades and students. For the interaction between the HTML forms and database, the SQL[6] programming language is used with an Open Database Connection (ODBC).

I. INTRODUCTION

This paper describes a project to write a program that could be used by teachers and students for mathematics classes. It takes the concept of the math lesson and puts it on the Internet for many to use. One computer or many computers connected to a server are able to use this software package. The teacher’s responsibility would be to provide the lessons for their class by using the provided problem builder with this program. The students can log onto a computer with their user name and view from their personal home page all previous lessons and scores. When the student is ready to take the lesson they click on the lesson button and they are ready to go. The student's lesson is automatically graded and submitted to the database. All grades are entered into the teacher's grade book for their use.

The software package uses the HTML programming language as the GUI interface for users. All data is passed using CGI forms and the Perl scripting language. All necessary data is kept in one database, with five tables within that database that holds information on the users, lessons, grades and students. For the interaction between the HTML forms and the database, the SQL programming language is used with an Open Database Connection (ODBC).

The MathComp (the name for our system) program involves both the student and the instructor
