AbstractPreparation for exams and other material can take a very long time for professors and instructors. Making it easier for professors to help their students and for students to help themselves will allow for more material to be taught if some of the preparation time is minimized. Easy access to information would benefit the lives of both professors and students. The goal of this paper is to create a website that professors and students, alike, can use to easily obtain information about computer science. This will focus mainly on assistance for professors, as this website will allow for easy creations of study guides and exams to provide to students. The purpose of this website is to aid professors and students by making the process of creating exams a faster experience for instructors of computer science courses. This application will consist of a database that contains various types of exam questions that the user can add to. The user can search for questions in the database based on certain parameters that they enter on a search page. From here, the site sends that data over through the database and retrieves the necessary data. This data is then displayed to the user in the form of questions--numbered in a list going down. Each question can be clicked and if it is, the display changes to view the specific information of that question; for example, the answer, the tags to search for other questions, and a way to add that question a list of questions to create an exam. The user will also be able to input their own questions, where they would type in their own question, the answer to the question, and check all the tags that pertain to that question.This question will then get added to the database, where it will become available to be searched. With questions added to a ‘shopping cart,’ users will be able to pick and choose which questions they actually want, which will then be finalized into an exam pdf.
