Dear Mr. Redding,
I might be able to implement this by 2 December.
1. What kind of machine is it running on ?
2. Do you have a database like mysql on this machine ?
3. Do you have DBD/DBI for the database installed ?
4. Do you have a way for me to take the test ?
5. Do you have a development machine/server ?

> > Project Background/Description:
> > A client's web site has 3 sections, or Chapters, consisting of roughly
> > 5-10 tests each. It is expected that 300 students will take these
> > tests. Scripting has already been implemented to grade these tests and
> > return the following information: user ID, test ID, date, score (e.g. 6
> > out of 10), percentage (e.g. 60%), and written grade (e.g. "Pass" or
> > "Fail").
> > The Problem:
> > The completed version of this testing process requires a Perl script(s)
> > that performs the following operations when queried:
> > 1. Create an individual student record to track the following
> > information: A) user ID and B) the test ID, date, score, percentage and
> > written grade for each test taken within a Chapter. Again, less than
> > 300 students and about 30 tests grouped into 3 distinct Chapters.
> > 2. Create a dynamic page containing a summary of the student's test
> > results and progress for each Chapter. In other words, the script should
> > find a student's record, group all completed tests, scores and other
> > information by Chapter, and then generate a dynamic summary page with
> > that information for that Chapter. Scripting has already been
> > implemented to call the Perl script with a user ID stored in a
> > client-side cookie.
> > Conclusion:
> > This appears to be a fairly straightforward problem, although a bit
> > beyond my reach of Perl programming abilities at this point. Although I

> > sticking variables into a Perl script to generate a custom page), I do
> > not have the technical wherewithal to store, sort and retrieve
> > information in the manner I have described herein. Hence my main goal
> > is to acquire the proper Perl scripting to support the data base
> > functions for tracking multiple students and their subsequent test
> > information.
