I would like some suggestions on building a dynamic quiz. There are categories and in each category the question can be multiple choice or true/false. For each category a specific number of questions is asked. The questions asked are randomly chosen from a collection of questions for the category. The number of questions chosen may be different for each category.
example category one - 3 questions category two - 1 question category three - 2 questions My first thought is a python script does the randomization selecting questions from my postgresql database. Quizzes submitted updates the database counting correct and wrong answers and emails the results to the student and instructors. A second thought is a python script builds a dtml page quiz from individual dtml files which categories can be folders with an individual dtml file for each question. Then submit questions and answers to database and email student and instructors. A third thought is create a collection of complete quizzes and then randomly select a quiz (least preferred). I've searched and the closest I could find was on the zope edu wiki just discussing an aggregated quiz but I haven't found where that has been persued. Most or all quiz products create static quizzes not one that can be built "on the fly". Any other designs would be appreciated.
