[Phptest-users] modifications to phptest

Hello everyone,

I've begun some modifications to phptest for a new project. If someone else has already made similar changes or has a need for a similarly modified version and would like to collaborate, please let me know.

1. Using the one question at a time option, provide feedback after each question is answered. Essentially, when they click the question's submit button, take them to the view_answers.php
feedback rather than the view_results.php list.

2. In the answer's table, replace the question, answer, and user_answers text data with numbers
corresponding to these fields in the questions table.

3. Move answer choices from the questions table to a separate answer_choices table.

4. Create an explanations table linked to the answer_choices table so that users get different feedback
depending on which answer they give.

5. Create some media (clips, stills, sounds) tables linked to answer_choices.

I've looked at some other quiz/test programs, both standalone applications and quiz components of course management systems. Several are structured as I describe but I find the phptest code to be much more intelligible and, therefore, easier to modify than anything else I've looked at.
