QuizPage.com Frequently Asked
Q: How much does your quiz hosting service
A: We charge based upon the number of
times your quizzes are accessed/used. There
are no monthly or annual fees involved with Quizpage.com. Instead, we
charge based upon usage, that is, how many quizzes are taken online. We
have two plans:
1) 500 / $50: Allows your online quizzes to be used 500 times.
2) 1000 / $75: Allows your online quizzes to be used 1000 times.
Once the 500 or 1000 allotment is used up, you would then be billed for
the next allotment. Payment in advance is required.
The above rates would not include the software used to create the
quizzes. You would also need to invest $34.95 for the actual "Create A
Quiz" software (see
Q: How many quizzes can I create and
upload to your QuizPage.com quiz hosting site?
A: As many quizzes as you would
like. There is no reasonable limit to the number of quizzes that
you can create, upload, and have available for others to access.
Q: Is there any way to obtain reports of
each user's quiz session?
A: There is a score
history administration panel that shows users' names, date and time
that the quiz was taken, the number of questions attempted, the number
of questions that were correctly answered, the percentage of correct
answers and the elapsed time. If you have the optional LOG feature
turned on, then each user in the score history table will then have a
hyperlink to that user's quiz session, showing in more detail what
questions were presented, the user's answer. That LOG report looks like

Q: How exactly would we be able to access
these quizzes once they've been uploaded to the QuizPage.com
A: Each customer receives a username,
e.g. MicroTech. A subfolder on our QuizPage.com is
then reserved for quizzes using the QuizPage.com root URL plus
the the username. So in the example above, the customer (and all
of the students who are given the URL) would be able to see a list of
all available uploaded quizzes at www.QuizPage.com/MicroTech
(case insensitive). Anybody who knows and types this URL (or arrives at
this URL via a doorway hyperlink from your web site, or via an email
link) will be able to access and take your quizzes.
Q: Why must our quizzes reside on your
server? Why can't we put our quizzes and your application on our own
A: Because the programming files that
make up our web based quiz application are uncompiled, raw Perl script.
If we provided these scripts to our customers we would in essence be
revealing the source code to the application. For those who are not
computer programmers and don't follow the answer, It would be like
Kentucky Fried Chicken posting the Colonel's secret formula on their kfc.com
web site. The programming code must remain on our server for
intellectual property protection reasons. Also, configuring a web server
application is much more complicated than installing a piece of software
on a personal desktop computer, and requires "hands-on"
tweaking to get web applications to work properly. On top of that, a
server could be running one of a multitude of operating systems: Unix,
Linux, Apple, Windows, etc. Our server based solution only works for web
servers running Windows, and on servers running a scripting language
called Active-Perl, which is not native to Windows, and must be
downloaded from a third-party. Then there is the issue of email support.
Email servers would have to be configured to allow the quiz application
to send emails. Emails servers must be
properly interfaced with the quiz program, which is not an easy task. In
short, there are too many complicated technical issues that are bound to
arise and it was felt for simplicity sake, to have the quiz application
run on our server, and to offer the customer an easy
to use upload utility which allows them to upload quizzes to our
server. It makes things so much simpler for all parties. Since things
are simpler in this arrangement, we can pass the savings on to the
If you are absolutely opposed to having
your quizzes hosted on our web server, there is one alternative solution
that may interest you. We also publish a software quiz product
called Quiz Script Creator. It creates
offline, or online, attached to an email, or placed on YOUR web site, or
run from a local hard drive or a network drive. The only
tool (Quiz Script Creator) is that score results and detailed log files
are not maintained anywhere, meaning that once the quiz is completed,
there is no way for the administrator to know the student's results
(unless the student clicks the PRINT button when they exit the quiz and
the quiz summary page appears).
