Question paper Generator Software User Guide v13.1 Quick Test Paper Creation for Classroom & Online Tests CERTIFIED ISO 27001 : 2005 UNDERSTANDING QUESTION BANK SOFTWARE The Question Bank software also known as Question Paper Generator will be referred as QPG hereafter. Software does not store questions. It simply stores references to unique question IDs and corresponding filter tags applied to them. The QPG offers ease and independence of working such that the task of feeding the questions in a Question Resource file (QR file) which is a DOC file, can be carried out even in the absence of QPG software. The text of the question is stored in a QR file. The software does not import the question text in its database. This property itself explains the scope and variety of textual content that can be handled by this software. According to a general concept, if we store questions is a database then we can at the most keep text based questions in english, while, in this software we keep questions data in a DOC file so we can store question text of any language, even multiple languages, we can create diagrams and store pictures as well. Formulas can also be incorporated using special formula editor utilities. And so the QPG can handle questions having any or all of the above properties because its question content lies in a referenced DOC file called the QR file (Question Resource File). Simply put, you can generate Monolingual or Bilingual question paper containing questions with formulas and diagrams. The QPG not only provides printable output, but it also generates linear tabular soft copy output which can be used as an input to the Online Test System. QUESTION PAPER GENERATION FLOW DIAGRAM

Question paper Generator Software User Guide v13.1 Quick Test Paper Creation for Classroom & Online Tests CERTIFIED ISO 27001 : 2005 LOCATION OF QUESTION RESOURCE (QR) AND REFERENCE DATA (RD) FILES The question references and their property tags are stored in a MS Access Database file known as the Reference Database. The installation folder (C:\ADDMEN) contains a file CODB.MDB, which stores the path of Reference Data accessed by the software. There are two tables TBLBRANCH and TBLSUB. TBLSUB contains the path to Question Bank Reference Data files. By default the software connects to a single blank Reference Database named as “DBQBANK”, but it can be given any name and corresponding entry in the CODB.MDB > TBLSUB must be changed (file C:/Addmen/Data/DBQBANK.MDB). The DBQBANK Reference Data File is found in the C:/Addmen/Data folder. If not it can be copied and pasted from C:/Addmen/Resource folder. The QR files containing questions, are also kept at the same location as the Reference Database.

DISTRIBUTION OF QUESTION RESOURCE (QR) FILES Several separate QR files can be made to store questions. Technically, there is no limitation on the count or the size or content of QR files used to store the questions. But practical convenience must be seen. A QR file can contain questions of one subject or one topic, depends totally on the choice of the user about their pattern of classification of content. Most commonly, QR documents are made topic wise. Keeping topic wise file divisions, reduces the size of the QR file and also provides better control over the content. There is no specified format constraint for naming the files. Nomenclature of the files is totally at user discretion. For e.g. PHY-Capacitance.doc contains all questions pertaining to Capacitance topic in subject Physics.

DISTRIBUTION OF REFERENCE DATA (RD) FILES Keeping a single Reference Database for multiple subjects is suggested because making multi-subject test papers is possible only by virtue of a single database. In case of multi-department functionality, separate databases can be handled and then the question paper output of different subjects can be merged manually if required. If we prefer to maintain separate database for separate subjects or groups, identical entries can be made into TBLSUB with changed database names and display names.

Question paper Generator Software User Guide v13.1 Quick Test Paper Creation for Classroom & Online Tests CERTIFIED ISO 27001 : 2005 BUILDING QUESTION BANK RESOURCE QUESTION RESOURCE FILE FORMATS A DOC file containing several tables, each with 8 columns is used as a resource bank (QR) to store questions for QPG Software. Each question in the bank is given a unique ID which points to a particular row of a 8 column table in this QR file. The 8 column table has several rows each housing a unique question and its options and answer. The significance of each column is as follows: Col 1 Col 2 Col 3 Col 4 Col 5 Col 6 Col 7 Col 8

Unique ID Question Text Option A Option B Option C Option D Option E Answer / Key /Hint / Solution

There is no specific format of the QR Word file. It can be A4 size or A3 size or any other size. It can be in portrait or landscape. Even the columns in all the tables in the QR file can have variable widths.

CREATE QUESTION RESOURCE (QR) FILE This file can be generated manually but since column 1 contains unique Question IDs, it is taxing for the operator to remember what question IDs have been used. To ease up the process, software has a feature to generate a blank QR file where question numbers are already entered in the first column and the user can continue with typing or pasting the question text in rest of the columns. The QR file generated by the software, contains unique question IDs and the corresponding unique records are reserved in the database for the questions of given subject/topic.These can later be tagged for the specification for which it is generated.

Question paper Generator Software User Guide v13.1 Quick Test Paper Creation for Classroom & Online Tests CERTIFIED ISO 27001 : 2005 THE QUESTION BANK PANEL The question bank panel can be roughly divided into 2 parts, the left part containing filter boxes and the right part containing the list of the question records and command buttons. To list a set of questions that belong to a particular filter criteria, select the filter tags by checking them and press LIST.

IMPORTANT - To enlist only limited question which we are working upon right now, we can make use of QID From-QID To text boxes given above the LIST button. Leaving both textboxes blank will enlist all questions. If QID From textbox is set and QID To textbox is empty, on pressing the LIST button we get a list of questions starting from QID From value and vice versa. Once a question range is listed, it is temporarily saved until both textboxes are emptied and listed again. When we put a tick on the question in the question list, its properties are shown selected in the filter lists. But when you deselect an item or select multiple records, the properties displayed on selecting the first single record, remains unchanged. To select all the listed questions at once, tick the checkbox given atop question list.

To open a particular question ID in the QR containing the question, select the question and press EDIT. This will work only if one question is selected. There are six filter boxes on the left side of the panel. Three of them: Unit, Chapter & Topic are interlinked. While three others: Category, Level, Type are independent. More items can be added to filter boxes by right clicking on the filter box. A master input panel opens when you right-click. Below the filter boxes are open-text drop down boxes, named as Remark, Filename and Reference. - The Remark box accept user defined remarks which are displayed below the question in the Question paper. - Filename filter s used to change the filename in case of change of nomenclature. - The Reference box is used to link the current question with a particular question and is mostly used in grouped question types.

Question paper Generator Software User Guide v13.1 Quick Test Paper Creation for Classroom & Online Tests CERTIFIED ISO 27001 : 2005

Each filter list has a check box given at the top to activate the filter. This check box must be checked in order to save the property to selected questions. Unit-Chapter-Topic filter lists have just one common check box given atop the Unit filter list because these three filters are interlinked. There are separate check boxes atop each of filters- Category, Level and Type. A question can belong to multiple subjects/ units chapters or topics. Also multiple properties like category, difficulty level or question type can be applied to a question. The question would be reflected in the search result when searched for any of them.

SETTING UP QUESTION PROPERTY TAGS Setting up Question Tags is a one time tasks and should be accomplished when the software is run for the first time. The Unit, Chapter and Topic tags are nested tags while the Category, Difficulty Level and Question Type tags are independent tags. Create a systematic and approved academic plan. This is the most important step and is crucial in deciding how well you would be able to make use of your question bank and this software. It is important to devote as much time to creating this academic plan, because when you start tagging the questions according to available Units, Chapters and Topics the data becomes complex and any change later or complete reversal would be time consuming and prone to human errors. Ideally create a spreadsheet of all subjects well classified into Units, Chapters and Topics. Having created a systematic and approved planning, then enter the tags / filters into the Question Bank Software. >

Units, Chapters , Topics are nested filters created one below the other For e.g. Physics (Unit) > Low of Motion (Chapter) > Kinetics (Topic) Physics (Unit) > Low of Motion (Chapter) > Potential Energy (Topic) Chemistry (Unit) > Bonding (Chapter) > Double Bond (Topic) Chemistry (Unit) > Bonding (Chapter) > Triple Bond (Topic)

Further, Subject filters can be added within the Unit filter by simply adding Prefixes to filter names. For e.g. Chemistry - Organic (Unit) > Bonding (Chapter) > Double Bond (Topic)

>

Category Filter can be used to create some standard independent filters if required. For e.g. Class09 | Class10 | Class11 | Class12 | Grad | PG 2008 | 2009 | 2010 | 2011 1mark | 2mark |4 mark | 5mark

>

>

Difficulty Level master can contain any number of user defined entries following any nomenclature. For e.g. Very easy | Easy | Average | Difficult | Very Difficult 1* | 2** | 3*** | 4**** | 5***** Silver | Gold | Platinum Question Type is a filter which classifies a question according to the type of poser. This filter is open to user discretion. Some exemplary Question Types are :

Display Type is a predefined filter which decides the display type of any question. Display HIDE(Default) 0OPT 1OPT 2OPT 4OPT

Interpretation Question is entered in database but will not reflect in any search or question paper formation. Subjective Question does not have options. Only question cell will be displayed. Option cells will not be created. Objective question having lengthy options. Max upto 5 option cells are displayed in single column, one below the other. Displays options in 2 columns. Max upto 4 option cells are displayed. Displays options in 4 columns. Max upto 4 option cells are displayed.

By default when we create a QR, corresponding entries are created in the database. All these question entries are marked as “HIDE”. The purpose of doing so is to ensure that if any rows are left blank in the created QR file, then such questions should not be included in the question selection search, otherwise they would yield blank questions in the Question Paper output DOC file.

APPLY PROPERTY TAGS Entering the questions in a QR file and tagging the questions in the reference database are two distinct tasks and can be done simultaneously. In order to avoid any confusion or manual errors, preferably, one Tag must be applied at one time. To apply tags following steps can be followed. If at the moment we are marking the Difficulty Level of the questions and do not want to affect the Category or Question Type of the questions, then we can choose to activate only the Difficulty Level filter.

IMPORTANT- The activator check box atop the filter must be essentially selected to be able to save any changes made to the filter, when you press the SAVE button. NO property will be save unless the checkbox is ticked. If after saving, the list becomes empty, then obviously some parameter which is chosen has not been saved because the activator check box has not been selected. Remove the filter, furnish the list and apply again.

Question paper Generator Software User Guide v13.1 Quick Test Paper Creation for Classroom & Online Tests CERTIFIED ISO 27001 : 2005 CREATE BLUE PRINT A blue print is actually a list of conditions that we specify to choose the questions from a bank to form a Question Paper. New blue prints can be created by clicking on the blue print option on Question Bank Panel. As the blue print definition is stored for later use, we can create blue prints in advance for the entire upcoming test schedule. And thus the name of the blueprint should be sensibly planned for future convenience. The Generate Paper panel contains a drop down list to select a suitable blue print from the library. Give a name and the number of questions for new Blue print and press CREATE on the top left hand side of the Blueprint panel. Now select the created blue print from the adjacent drop down list for further definition of specifications. On selection the number of questions specified / mapped out of total number of questions is displayed alongside. Now the user must create a mapping for each section.

IMPORTANT - During shuffling the questions at later stages, the questions are shuffled within the mapping only. For Eg. a 2 subject test paper contains 20 questions, 10 from each subject and each subject has 2 sections of 5 questions each. Like Subject 1- Section 1: Q1-Q5. Subject 1- Section 2: Q6-Q10. Subject 2- Section 1: Q11-Q15. Subject 2- Section 2: Q16-Q20. To create a mapping, use the out of the six drop down list given and select the desired property tag as you want in your selected questions. For each selected property in the drop down list, the number of questions available in the bank matching all the selected filter criteria are displayed in a text box below the list. The user can chose any number of questions from the available number of questions and press SAVE. Multiple mappings constituting to one blueprint can be created in the similar fashion. To delete a mapping, press CTRL+DEL by selecting the mapping in the list. To delete the entire blue print, there is a DELETE button on right.

Question paper Generator Software User Guide v13.1 Quick Test Paper Creation for Classroom & Online Tests CERTIFIED ISO 27001 : 2005 GENERATE PAPER PANEL The Generate Panel contains an ensemble of operational features used to generate a printable, exportable or uploadable question paper output based on the user requirements. It includes following steps and necessary controls can be found on the Generate Paper panel. > > > >

A blue print is selected from a pre created library. Questions are searched and selected according to the blue print. A layout is chosen for the final export of the output. Actions like transferring the answer key to OMR Modules or uploading question paper for Online Test.

QUESTION SELECTION & ORDERING - IMPORTANT! On selecting a blue print the number of questions in it is visible adjacent to it. Multiple sets of questions can be selected for a specific blue print. For selecting the questions following this blue print select the “Set” from drop down list given adjacent to the selected blueprint. In case we want to select questions that have been not used or used less in the past, then we can specify a max usage count in the “USE <=” text box. If we want a question that has never been selected, we can set the USE value to 1. Then during selection of questions the software will consider only those questions which have been selected less than equal to one time. The utility and effectivity of this feature increases with increase in size of the Question Bank. Generally, for a small bank we leave the “USE” text box blank. On pressing the SELECT button the question IDs suiting to the specified requirement are picked and listed in the selected question list given to the right of the screen. Once the question IDs are selected for a given blue print and question set, they remain selected and will get listed every time we select that blue print and question set. There are two ways of getting different question paper for a blue print: 1. Same blue print, but different questions in random order 2. Same blue print, same questions in shuffled order Development Office: C 904, Eisha Bella Vista, Near Sai Service Centre, Kondhwa, Pune – 411048 (MS) Registered Office: 134, Indramani Nagar, Race Course Road, Gwalior – 474005 (MP) Ph.: 09229113500, 08411906600 Email: software@admengroup.com Website: www.admengroup.com


Question paper Generator Software User Guide v13.1 Quick Test Paper Creation for Classroom & Online Tests CERTIFIED ISO 27001 : 2005 In case 1, a blue print has 10 questions, SET 1 can contain 10 different Question IDs which have been selected from the database and SET 2 can contain other 10 question IDs which are different from SET 1. To do this simple select a set and press SELECT. Everytime the software searches for questions, it will be an independant search. In case 2, we want to get Question Set 2 which contains the same questions as in Question Set 1, but in a different jumbled up sequence, then we can press COPY & SHUFFLE SET 1. Later the selected questions can be seen in a jumbled up sequence on selecting Set 2 and other following set numbers. If the user desires to include a question in the given test which has not been selected by the software, he can manually override the software selection by simply replacing any of the selected question ID with the desired question ID. The sequence of the selected question can be altered manually by changing the serial no. of the question in the selected question list on the right hand side of the screen. If we expect the Q. No. 1 to be displayed at position 6, then we change the sequence to 6 and the question on position 6 automatically gets swapped to position 1.

CREATE OUTPUT FILE The printable output of the Question Paper is delivered in a word file which is automatically created based on a template file created by the user himself. There is no specific format of the question paper output file. It can be A4 size or Legal size or any other size. It can be in portrait or landscape. It can even have a multi column structure. Two standard templates are available in the software. These can be edited to customize the header and the footer. More template files can be generated manually by the user.

IMPORTANT - In case of bilingual papers, single column format is ideally suited because the software itself creates two columns one for each language. Both language questions are presented parallel in either columns. To generate a bilingual paper, select the bilingual checkbox on the Generate Paper panel. IMPORTANT - In order to obtain an input file for the Online Test system we need the output in a linear table format, same as the question bank file, Do not select any output format while you press the Generate button. IMPORTANT - To choose between ABCD or 1234 as option bullets or to change alignment, alter Main Screen > Settings > Qpaper Preferences. The output question paper file is created at the data location where you have your QR Files & Reference Databases. At the time of creation the Question Paper file is named as “Blueprint[Set]-Copy.Doc”. Simultaneously, an Answer Key file is also created which is named as “Ans-Blueprint[Set]-Copy.Doc”. The Answer Key file contains the content of the 8th column against each unique question ID included in the Question Paper. Whatever, the 8th column bears, the MCQ Answer Key or hint or description is displayed in the Answer Key output file. The file can be printed and displayed or its content (if limited to MCQ answers in the format A,B,C,....) can be pasted into the OMR Answer Sheet Checker.
