Continuing Education Website Kit
This kit includes 10 readymade test templates with a built in timers, 10 answer files, 10 datafiles, and 4 Perl programs that run on the ISP Server where you host your site. The ISP must allow Perl CGI programs to run. CGI stands for Common Gateway Interface.
How it Works
If the grade is passing then a link to the next test is provided, if failed a link to the same test is provided. After Test 10 is passed a link to a search page is provided where the tester can find at all the passed test results using the email address.
This package comes with reasonable technical support by Gerald Newton who will help you set it up and get it running.
Remember this. The files provided in this kit can be modified and expanded to include many more tests. This kit is a boiler plate for creating an entire array of tests and the same software or an easily modified version of it can be used over and over.
You must provide a website hosted by a provider such as Powweb.com. Total cost for your site at Powweb is less than $100 per year and that includes gigabytes of files on their servers and running Perl programs at no additional cost. I have been using Powweb for over 10 years and they have been excellent in every way including technical support.
The great thing about this web site kit is that once set up and running it is entirely under your control and no administrators or sponsors can alter your site. There are also no additional charges.
Once you pay the price for this kit it is all yours! The tests run in most browsers that run Java and that includes most of them. Also this package works well in a Unix environment like Powweb uses.
A trial version of this package starting at test 1 is at: http://www.electriciancalculators.com/tests/test1.htm
To find the correct answers download any answerfile using the utility program. The answers are all the same for the test templates. Of course these answers would be changed once the permanent tests are created.

Price: An unbelievable $99.00
After purchase and receiving username and password download zipped file from here: The zipped file includes four Perl CGI programs, 10 answer files, 10 datafiles, and 10 htm tests. The main Perl Program grades the tests the other 3 are for retrieving information as shown in the utility page.
