Stand alone Products
Software presented on this site is free to use. The products and the website began as home studies towards an IT certification. The products and website gradually morphed into the hobby website you see here today.
I have found this to be one of the best ways to learn computing. There is no pressure to perform, and, doing everything in your own time, you gradually get there.
You may use any product or code as you please, ideally providing due recognition back to Quizbuilder Software, which is a sample name for the purpose of presentation.
The underlying reasoning is to present a the look of a shell company (dict. def. a non-trading company used as a vehicle for various financial manoeuvres or kept dormant for future use in some other capacity).
As there are no financial transactions occuring on this website, the website can be thought of as a shell website, shelf website or hobby website.
Products include VBAQuizbuilder which is a Microsoft Excel based, quiz creation tool, demonstrating the use of Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications.
Web based Products
I also produce WebQuizbuilder, which is an HTML based, quiz creation tool for websites.
What is WebQuizbuilder?
How does WebQuizbuilder work?
How do I make my own quiz?
You open the data script, using a text editor, for example, Microsoft Notepad, and add your questions and answers into the script.
You then place both scripts into an HTML file, and click the refresh button. The driving engine reads the data from the data file and builds the quiz.
WebQuizbuilder is based on the principal of duality. From two halves you create a whole.
The user needs to edit the code, without actually seeing it, and potentially tampering with it.
Quizbuilder Software solves this problem by encrypting some part of the code, such that the user enters data, without accessing the rest of the code.
This is done by having two scripts. A data script and a driving engine.
The driving engine reads the data script.
The driving engine, (the encrypted builder script) is quizbuilder_E. The data script (user input script) is quizdata.js..
You do not need to know how the driving engine works, only that the driving engine reads the data, and that you need to enter data into the data script.
When you have entered your data, you apply the driving engine (the encrypted builder script) to the data, and the quiz builds itself.
From two things, a third forms. Male and female give birth to a child.
In chemistry, hydrogen and oxygen, forms water. H2 and O2 = H20
When the two halves combine (in the right way), the product forms.
In this case, you get a useful educational tool, a quiz based upon your own data and your own CSS styles, which you can post to a website.
Using WebQuizbuilder software you can create practically any type of text based quiz, and post it to the net.
You can customize the look of a quiz or test, by applying styles to the code.
You have full control over your quiz's color scheme and font. You can enhance your questions and answers with your own HTML.
With WebQuizbuilder you don't have to be concerned about screen size. Quizzes created using the software, scale to any screen resolution.
When you have entered your questions and answers into the script, save the file and place it in the head section of your web page. You then add the secondary script and WebQuizbuilder creates your quiz.
