Question Paper Generator

Abstract :
In today’s age, education is the most important way of achieving success. When we discuss
education, it is imperative to mention tests and examination. Examinations prepare students in their
quest for knowledge. So, having a proper examination paper and format is quite necessary. Now the
traditional method of generating question paper has been manual. In this method certain officials
chalk out the question paper. But this method can be ineffective at times owing to bias, repetition
and security concerns. We have proposed an Automated process of Question Paper Generation
which is fast, streamlined, randomized and secure. Every task performed by this system is
automated so that storage space, bias and security is not a concern anymore. Furthermore, we have
proposed a new algorithm which ensures total randomization of questions and avoids repetitions.
The proposed system can be helpful to many educational institutes and NGO based institutes.

1. Literature Survey :
The outcome of coaching and education can be attained by performing evaluation to compute
student’s intellectual levels and therefore the written exam is a method for teachers to validate
student understanding and knowledge, as well as, to evaluate the degree to which students are able
to adjust a learning thesis in a given environment. Evaluation through written examination is a
conventional procedure but it is a universal test technique performed in almost of the educational
colleges present day. Therefore, the question must be catering in following with the subject contents
learned by students to attain learning outcomes. However, the technique of questions writing is very
demanding task for the teacher. The state is getting more challenging when teacher try to essential
learning that learners have achieved, and can reliably demonstrate at the end of a course or
program. Mapping of questions with the Course outcomes is one of the important challenges faced
while making Question paper. So Question paper validation is to be ensured to get desired standard
from outcome attainment perspective as well as learning levels perspective.

2. Introduction :
In today’s world, time is a major concern. Any product that can effectively reduce time and power
consumption is accepted and appreciated. Thus we are presenting an Automated Question Paper
Generator System that can reduce time consumption by replacing the conventional method of
question paper generation system

A design of suitable automated system for generating question papers and managing related data
may prove vital in an Educational Institute. In this paper, we have proposed an integrated
automated system that stores questions related to a particular course and prints a question paper
based on its syllabus and curriculum.There are provisions to enter and edit data suitable to any
educational organization with complete freedom for specifying courses, semesters, syllabus and
pattern. This enables an educational institute to generate question ensuring security and non-
repetitiveness of question papers and is a boon for organizations with limited staff and resources.

Question Paper Generator

Purpose :

 The objective of this particular project topic is to provide professor a facility

generate question papers rather than doing it manually.
 This way a professor can create question paper according to their
requirement .
 The software will empower the college with a powerful tool to generate
questions in a very short span of time thus saving a lot of their precious time.
 Students can use this software for reference.

Type of audience :

This project is use full for students and subject teachers….Teachers can put questions on the
site and they simply create Question paper.

Modules :

1. Login
2. Registration
3. OTP generation
4. Paper generation

2.2 Domain Knowledge :

Many Automatic Question Generation systems have been evolved for different domain like reading
comprehension, vocabulary assessment etc. There are some approaches that have been developed
for generating factual questions from reading material. In , HidenobuKunichika and Tomoki Katyama
employs highly advanced NLP technology based system. They have developed AQG system to
generate factual questions from the contents of story. The system employed the five methods for
question generation: to ask about the content of one sentence, to use synonyms or antonyms, to
use modifiers appeared in plural sentences, to ask the contents represented by plural sentences by
using a relative pronoun, and to ask relationship of time and space

Question Paper Generator

2.3 Objective :

 To enable professor to get required criteria thus giving them flexibility to

create paper.
 To help professor to create question paper as per their reuirements ,they can
specify the stream,subject,units in per question,chapter in units,marks for
each question, etc.
 To allow user to choose desired option from many available options in various
 The login module is added to maintain security.
 The main objective of the proposed system is the automation of all the data
 The system will help the admin to store all the data and also modify the data.
 It also helps the admin to retrieve the data stored in the database whenever

2.4 Scope :

 This software can be widely used in educational institutes etc.

It is a web based application so user location doesn’t matter. Admin can
access this software anywhere anytime.
 This system also evaluate the candidate’s capability and
skills efficiently. It is fully automated system which fast results.
 In this system there is no need of transporting paper through police/security
vans to all colleges.
 This system provide unbiased result. The usage of this system
reduces human effort and save time and resources to an
 All the details can be viewed at a glance so that the admin does not have to refer to
Different files to check availability.
 Admin will be able to access the complete information & details of syllabus.
 Admin will be able to add & update the complete details in software (The
options available in various categories).

Question Paper Generator

3. Requirement Analysis :

3.1 Requirement Gathering :

For requirement gathering for the proposed system “Questing paper generator” we have used
the following requirement gathering technique: -

 Asking: - Asking strategy has been most frequently used while developing the system.
 Deriving information from existing system: - we have gone through the
communication technologies available in the present day. Also we have gone through
the number of site to collect the information regarding the proposed system.

4. System Study :
4.1 Existing system with Limitations :

The existing system for Question Paper Generation requires human staff to chalk out questions that
appear in the question paper. These teachers or professors select the questions according to the
syllabus and pattern as prescribed by the curriculum. The question paper then may be referred to a
higher authority who has the final say in these matters.

Limitation :

As most human working processes, this system suffers due to bias. There might be some questions
which are repeated in many question papers as the professor has a personal inclination towards
them. So there is no guarantee of pure randomly generated question paper. Other problems that
may plague this system are non-availability of staff and resources, natural calamities and accidents.
Also, the security of the system can be easily compromised if leverage over the person responsible
for generating question papers is obtained. Other limitations include: -

a) Lack of storage space

b) Prone to damage
c) Inefficient document transportation
d) Supply costs
e) Poor environmental credentials
f) Limited collaboration
g) Editing problems

4.2 Proposed system with Advantages:

 The aim of proposed system is to develop a system of improved facilities. The

proposed system can overcome all the limitations of the existing system. The
system provides proper security and reduces the manual work. The existing
system has several disadvantages and many more difficulties to work well.
The proposed system tries to eliminate or reduce these difficulties up to some
extent. The proposed system will be user friendly and Admin can easily do
their jobs without time lagging.
 This project intends to introduce more user friendliness in the various
activities such as record updating, maintenance.
 Record maintenance and updating can also be accomplished by using the
identification of the user with all the details being automatically generated.
These details are also being promptly automatically updated in the master file
thus keeping the record absolutely up-to-date.
 The entire information is maintained in the database or Files and whoever
wants to retrieve can’t retrieve; only authorized user can retrieve the
necessary information which can easily be accessible from the file

 Advantages of the proposed system are:

The system is very simple in design and to implement. The system

requires very low system resources and the system will work in almost all
configurations. It has got following features:
 Minimize manual data entry.
 Minimum time needed for the various processing.
 Greater efficiency.
 Modifications can be easily made.
 It is very fast comparatively to the Manual System to store, retrieve and
modify the data.
 Accurate information is available.
 Updated data is available.
 Security.

6.3 Design Approaches :

When to use the waterfall model:

 This model is used only when the requirements are very well known, clear and fixed.
 Product definition is stable.
 Technology is understood and easy to generate paper.
 There are no ambiguous requirements
 Ample resources with required expertise are available freely
 The project is short.
professor and customer interaction is involved during the development of the product. Once
the product is ready then only it can be delivered to the end users. Once the product is
developed and if any failure occurs then the cost of fixing such issues are very high, because
we need to update everywhere from document till the logic.

9. System Testing
9.1 Testing Methodologies :

 To ensure that during operation the system will perform as per

 TO make sure that system meets the user requirements during
 To make sure that during the operation, incorrect input, processing and
output will be detected
 To see that when correct inputs are fed to the system the outputs are
 To verify that the controls incorporated in the same system as intended
 Testing is a process of executing a program with the intent of finding an
 A good test case is one that has a high probability of finding an as yet
undiscovered error

The software developed has been tested successfully using the following
testing strategies and any errors that are encountered are corrected and again the
part of the program or the procedure or function is put to testing until all the errors
are removed. A successful test is one that uncovers an as yet undiscovered error.
Note that the result of the system testing will prove that the system is working
correctly. It will give confidence to system designer, users of the system, prevent
frustration during implementation process etc.,

Unit Testing:

Unit testing is essentially for the verification of the code produced during
the coding phase and the goal is test the internal logic of the module/program.
In the Generic code project, the unit testing is done during coding phase of data
entry forms whether the functions are working properly or not. In this phase all
the drivers are tested they are rightly connected or not.
