Here are some examples of ways you can use quizmaster.pl,
beginning with very simple, and becoming increasingly complex as you
proceed down the page. Please note that for clarity each quiz is in its
own directory and all files are fairly clearly marked. If you are afraid
of users using the VIEW SOURCE function of their web browsers to see the
file names you are using (and thus cheat), you may want to use more
In each of these examples, the file "quiz.html" is the
beginning of the quiz.
This is a one-question radio button quiz using the files specified
in the step-by-step directions. It returns one
file if the answer is right, and another file if the answer is wrong.
This quiz asks three questions, with each question and answer
having its own html file. The quiz is set up so that the user cannot
proceed to the next question without getting the previous one right.
This can be useful for teaching things, as you can give information about
why each answer is wrong to anyone who selects that answer.
This quiz asks three questions as well, but it asks all of the
questions at the same time and displays all of the results on the same
page. Note the use of a header, footer, and question files to output
unchanging information. Note also that the beginning HTML tags are only
in the header file, and the ending HTML tags are only in the footer file.
The other files are HTML fragments.
This quiz uses radio buttons, but also uses checkboxes to allow multiple
selections and a scrolling list to complete a phrase.
