layer(s): 7, 8 header file(s): z_exam.h, z_exam_html.h synopsis.
The exam object components are conceptually simple. To create an exam:
- build an exam by setting up each exam question
by adding choices (exam_question_choice_o), the text of the question (exam_question_text_o), any intro it may have (exam_question_intro_o), and of course the choices (exam_question_choice_o). An object is instantiated for each of these elements.
- Next create an exam question (exam_question_o) and add components to it using set_xxx() member functions.
- Finally create an exam_o object-instance, and use the member funcdtion add_question() to add each question to it.
exam_to_html() - formats a set of test questions as HTML classes in this group: exam_question_choice_o, exam_question_intro_o, exam_question_text_o, exam_question_o, exam_o function groups:

Exam objects are subclassed from the orthodox object. They are extremely amenable to permanent storage, ie, they can be easily written and retrieved from a database.
