The SF State Confucius Institute (CISFSU) Exam System is an online examination application that is requested by CISFSU. The application will be used to hold Northern California Chinese online competitions and exams. The details of the functional requirements are approved by CISFSU to ensure that the application is built as expected. By using the application, students studying Chinese can participate in exams without distance constraint. Teachers holding exams benefit from cost savings and increased efficiency. The application is developed with PHP and MySQL. It provides easy to use features for different user roles including student, teacher and administrator. A student can take exams and check exam records. A teacher can manage exam schedules, questions, grades and feedback, and check exam results and statistics. The application supports multiple formats of questions including text, audio and video. An exam question’s answer type can be multiple choice, multiple response or an essay question. An administrator is able to manage student and teacher accounts.
