International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Conference e-Learning 2014. Multi Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems (Lisbon, Portugal, July 15-19, 2014)
We describe a system that automatically assembles test questions from a set of examples. Our system can create test questions appropriate for each user's level at low cost. In particular, when a user review their lesson, our system provides new test questions which are assembled based on their previous test results and past mistakes, rather than a completely random selection. By providing test question of the appropriate level, we hope to enhance the user's learning. We use MongoDB which is a no-SQL database system because the contents (test questions) are not structured. Most of test contents used in class are not structured, i.e. each question has a different structure and different selection type. Therefore, we used MongoDB system in order to structure the test questions more freely.
