I have been using a testing app based on phpTest for an online course for the past 3 years and ran into this problem once before. The first time I guessed that a student had gotten on to a computer in the lab that still had another student logged in. This time I'm not so sure. Our students have been using the phptest app since Monday. Currently my result table shows a maximum result_id of 3623. Today a student emailed to say that when he completed a test, he saw another student's results rather than his. own. I looked for both students' user_ids in the results table and found that they had completed a test within 5 seconds of each other. It's been awhile since I've looked at the code that adds to the results table and displays results for users. I will do that next if necessary but I was hoping someone who had encountered this problem in the past might be able to give me some advice.

By the way, has anyone tried the new drupal quiz module? I've downloaded it but not installed it yet. I guess I'll try when
my course ends next week.

Best regards,
