eTests is a PHP/MySQL web-based platform allowing to set formative evaluations using multiple choice questions. It has been developed during a Phd in education at the University of Namur, Belgium.
To the students it offers feedback and detailed results to compare with pairs. To teachers it offers a way to analyze questions, validate them, follow the classroom trends of answers, edit questions, surveys, contextualize results regarding to studies sections, period of the year, etc.
This software is actually in pre-alpha because some not essentials features are still missing.
eTests uses several opensources libraries. See the 'Credits' section in the README file.
There is no documentation for the moment. It will be done in the wiki as soon as possible.
eTests was presented at FOSDEM 2013 during a lightning talk http://youtu.be/BM0QpD86je0

- Generate pdf of surveys for paper-based evaluation.
- Allows to mix questions in different orders to avoid cheating.
- Allows student to post comments upon questions.
- Compute several edumetric indices as difficulty, discrimination, several correlation coefficients as r.bis, etc, to help teacher to analyze results.
- Allow to export results for external computing of scores or statistics.
- Allows to associate questions to tasks for the follow up of students capabilities
- Can be translated in several languages. Currently there is only french, but translators are welcome.

Very handy tool to assess abilities of students or employees.
eTests is an actual solution for edumetry researchers. This applications allows you to follow carefully the learning process of each students. It also proposes a transversal analysis of each question and enables you to validate questions and detect inappropriate questions. This project is leaded with a great technical and scientific professionnalism that are supported by a genial developer.
