    Default Using Java to create a quiz...

    Can I create a quiz that won't show the answers? And is this the best way to create a quiz?

    Of course you can, and is what the best way? You haven't given us anything to compare and we have no idea what you're thinking.

    You can do anything you want you just have to know how to program it.

    Take a look at:
    Data types (int, char, boolean, String, etc...)
    Scanner class (Accepting user input)
    Arrays (Storing data in an organized manner)
    Methods (Reducing repetition of code)

    Depending on complexity of program:
    java.io (Saving/Opening files)
    Objects (Creating your own class that contains data which is stored/manipulated within the class)
    Swing (GUI related for drawing out the quiz instead of keeping it console related)
    Action Listeners (If you create buttons the program has to know what do with them if some action is done)

    I might have missed something. If you have any questions pertaining to something you get stuck on post your question about it.

    ahem, to clear up the fog, I have two instructors who are telling me that I can use XHTML to create a form for the quiz, which would be a multiple-choice type, and I'm assuming that the quiz also needs to restart if the user doesn't pass the required score. I would like a best site that I can visit to help me with this.

    Oh yea, can't forget, the answers will not show up in the source code will it?

    Thanks, Purple_Ninja

    The fog hasn't completely lifted. You're asking for help on this XHTML project in a Java Programming Forum called "What's Wrong With My Code?", because . . .

    I'm not an XHTML expert, but I can imagine how what you've described can be done easily in Java. I'm curious about the "security" requirements of the answers, though. There are several things that could be done to encrypt the answers, but If the users or quit takers have the source code, all necessary data files, the knowledge, the inclination, and the time to reverse engineer what has been done to hide the answers (how long will they have?) they could probably decipher the answers. I think that'll be true of any technology to which the users have access to the source code in which the answers will be included, encrypted or otherwise.

    As for suggesting a good site, I'm not sure what you mean. If you have no Java experience, start with the most basic Java Tutorials and then scale up from there depending on your experience. Or if you mean provide you with a link to a site that has source code for what you've described, you can search for and find that as easily as anyone else.

    In whichever direction you choose, good luck!
