Examination System in PHP, MySQL


I'm looking for a software script of some sort that is based on PHP and MySQL for an online test i plan on giving candidates at my job.
Does anyone know of any good ones or may have a script that can help me?

I'm looking for one that has timed response also so that the candidates only have a certain amount of time to pick a choice or respond to the question.

What does your question has to do with linux? This question is too generic (php script sites enough), offtopic.. i suggest a lock or removal of the post.

well i'm using Suse Linux 11.1 running Apache and MySQL. I believe this is the software portion of LinuxQuestions and i'm looking for a software that runs under linux that runs under Apache and MySQL that also runs under Linux. If i am mistaken then i apologize, this so far has been the best reference to any application running under Linux that i've ever had.

Your the first to tell me that i cannot ask linux questions at Linuxquestions.org.

Qn sounds ok to me, although I think(?) teebones meant Linux SW itself eg PHP as opposed to a pre-built app on Linux, such as your enquiry.
This qn might(?) be better off in Linux-General.
Maybe a moderator will come by and advise, or you can request that via the 'Report' button.
Sorry I can't help further.

I think this is fine where it is-----and yes you CAN ask questions here at LQ. If someone gets grumpy, ignore them.

This is not a very common question, so don't expect instant answers. For me, I would be writing the thing myself-----YMMV.

Writing something like this for your own use is a common and very effective way to learn.

As an educator myself, I did a search a while back and found several packages and suites and such. I used Google(tm) with "php" and "mysql" in the search string along with other Q&A terms.

Enjoy,

i've looked and most of those links are either broken, or "test scripts" as in scripts that you can use to test PHP and MySQL functionality. Thanks for the help guys.
