Application for Online Examination and Results System
Technology has supported online examinations successfully for a number of years, and has progressively enhanced the online examination process over the years. However, some schools particularly public tertiary institutions in developing countries are still involved in the conventional manual system of writing examination. This manual system of writing examination has a lot of demerits. Application for Online Examination and Results System The manual process of taking examinations is not only time-consuming and tedious, but cumbersome, hence the need for a better, faster and more reliable means of examining students.

HTML5 is a markup language used for structuring and presenting content on the World Wide Web. It is the fifth and latest major version of HTML that is a World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) recommendation. The current specification is known as the HTML Living Standard and is maintained by a consortium of the major browser vendors (Apple, Google, Mozilla, and Microsoft), the Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group (WHATWG).
HTML5 includes detailed processing models to encourage more interoperable implementations; it extends, improves and rationalizes the markup available for documents and introduces markup and application programming interfaces (APIs) for complex web applications. For the same reasons, HTML5 is also a candidate for cross-platform mobile applications, because it includes features designed with low-powered devices in mind.
Unlike CSS 2, which is a large single specification defining various features, CSS 3 is divided into several separate documents called “modules”. Each module adds new capabilities or extends features defined in CSS 2, preserving backward compatibility. Work on CSS level 3 started around the time of publication of the original CSS 2 recommendation. The earliest CSS 3 drafts were published in June 1999.
Due to the modularization, different modules have different stability and statuses. Some modules have Candidate Recommendation (CR) status and are considered moderately stable. At CR stage, implementations are advised to drop vendor prefixes.
Significant changes include:
- Major rewrite of the code
- Replacing Less with Sass
- Addition of Reboot, a collection of element-specific CSS changes in a single file, based on Normalize
- Dropping support for IE8, IE9,[contradictory] and iOS 6
- CSS Flexible Box support
- Adding navigation customization options
- Adding responsive spacing and sizing utilities
- Switching from the pixels unit in CSS to root ems
- Increasing global font size from 14px to 16px
- Dropping the panel, thumbnail, pager, and well components
- Dropping the Glyphicons icon font
- Huge number[quantify] of utility classes
- Improved form styling, buttons, drop-down menus, media objects and image classes
Bootstrap 4 supports the latest versions of the Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, and Safari (except on Windows). It additionally supports back to IE9[contradictory] and the latest Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR).
The main features of PHP 5.6.0 include:
- Constant scalar expressions.
- Variadic functions and argument unpacking using the … operator.
- Exponentiation using the ** operator.
- Function and constant importing with the use keyword.
- phpdbg as an interactive integrated debugger SAPI.
- php://input is now reusable, and $HTTP_RAW_POST_DATA is deprecated.
- GMP objects now support operator overloading.
- File uploads larger than 2 gigabytes in size are now accepted.
The general availability of MySQL 5.6 was announced in February 2013. New features included performance improvements to the query optimizer, higher transactional throughput in InnoDB, new NoSQL-style memcached APIs, improvements to partitioning for querying and managing very large tables, TIMESTAMP column type that correctly stores milliseconds, improvements to replication, and better performance monitoring by expanding the data available through the PERFORMANCE_SCHEMA. The InnoDB storage engine also included support for full-text search and improved group commit performance.
Angular 1.3 provides a boost in performance versus the previous versions. The Angular development team concentrated on making it less overhead. According to Jeff Cross and Brian Ford at the Ng-Europe conference, they achieved 4.3 times faster DOM manipulation with 73% less garbage and 3.5 times faster digest with 87% less garbage versus 1.2.0 version based on their largetable benchmark tests.
To help increase performance of your application, a new production mode is available. This mode will turn off features that mainly are used for debugging purposes.
This system must be designed as user required. So, the complete requirement must be found:
- Quick scheduling:
The system helps the faculty member to generate an automatic exam instead of using papers. Which save a time for writing, checking and for input marks. Also, student can see the exam when he login as an individual to the system.
- Immediate results and solutions:
When the student finishes his exam, the system checks her answers and compared with the correct answer. And the system saves the incorrect and correct answers and calculates the mark of correct answers. Then give the total mark. And send a report for student to see where he is fault.
- Easy to store and retrieve information:
Rather to save the information on a papers or in separate sheets. There are a data base management to store and retrieve the information needed by the administrator or Faculty member or student according a report generated by the system.
This section gives a functional requirement that applicable to the On-Line Exam system.
There are two sub modules in this phase.
The functionality of each module is as follows:
The candidate will logon to the software and take his examination. He can also check his previous examinations marks and his details. The candidate will get result immediately after the completion of the examination.
The administrator collects all the results after successful completion of the examination and sends to the headquarters as and when required.
- The administrator has the full-fledged rights over the OES.
- Can create/delete an account.
- Can view the accounts.
- Can change the password.
- Can hide any kind of features from the both of users.
- Insert/delete/edit the information of available on OES.
Can access all the accounts of the faculty members/students
The Administrator can be done the following:
- Create/delete accounts (add list of his student)
- Change password for Student
- Create/ delete/update courses (subject).
- Can view the different categories of Test available in their account.
- Can change password.
- Can view their marks.
- Can view the various reading material.
- Can view and modify its profile but can modify it to some limited range.
