QNET Online Self Assessment System is designed to facilitate a self-evaluation process
for students. This system enables students to test their knowledge in various subjects, to
rehearse and familiarize themselves with actual questionnaire / situations. The software
system is capable of accommodating an unlimited number of questions for as many as
fifteen subjects per department; and for a total of fifteen departments. Three levels of tests
are offered by the system viz. Basic, Intermediate and Advanced. On completion of each
test, the student is availed of the results and a facility to view the correct answers and
references pertaining to each question. A comprehensive set of statistical reports is
generated by the system to monitor the performance of students. A very user-friendly
graphical user interface is utilized in designing of this state-of-the-art
application software package incorporating modern features such as automatic screen updates and embedded
data entry screen linking.
