    Default How to make a test?

    I'm not sure in which topic to put this question... but here goes.

    I want to make a test (a MBTI one indeed).
    I want to put it on my website. If necessary, I'll use a link, but I'd prefer to incorporate it into my website.
    I want to use questions with five answering possibilities: "absolutely not", "not really", "neutral", "rather yes" and "absolutely yes". These should score -2, -1, 0, 1, 2 points towards a trait. (eg. J, then "Minus J" = "P"). Of course, if I can use 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 instead that's not a problem.
    I want to show the result in two different ways: the type and the percentages.

    Examples:

    You are an ESTJ. [description]
    You score 30% E, 50%S, 40%T and 20% J.

    You are an ENTP [description]
    You score 30% E, 50%N, 40%T and 20% P.
    - OR -
    You score 30% E, -50%S, 40%T and -20% J. (but preferably the former... I don't want to curse the INFPs with totally negative results )

    I've created the test already in Excel.

    Any ideas how to do it?

    I wouldn't use negative percentages. Also, I'd try to include individual N vs S and T v F explanations.

    Please?
    I didn't ask advice on the content or the presentation. I just want technical advice.
    I've made the thing in Excel. It doesn't show negative numbers (though it uses them for calculating).
    I want either to incorporate the Excel thing in my website, OR make a web-based test. So that people who visit my website can take my test. I don't care if the web-based thing uses negative numbers or not.
    I just don't want it to show eg. "you're 10%J" when the person is a P... something which would happen if you score on a scale from 0% to 100% with "50% J" actually meaning "balanced".

    Oh oops! Seems like something you'd build in Java, or maybe use the "build your own" quiz thing in Helloquizy or so.

    Sorry about that.

    Well, the only suggestion I can give you is to use Okcupid or Helloquizzy. Actually, this wouldn't be to hard to make in C++. Unfortunately, I have no idea how you could use a C++ program on a website.

    This would be pretty easy with a simple XHTML form and some PHP. Of course, it's easy for me to just say "learn PHP lol" but to be quite honest it would be the best way.

    You might try Okcupid as suggested earlier. It's the only off-site quiz engine I've ever really experimented with.

    Thanks for moving, Trinity, I wasn't sure about it...
    Thanks for the php hint, Sketch. I've googled php and found a nice tutorial... it IS easy! (well, I've been programming in Basic since I was three, so I'm familiar with computer programming...)

    Programming at 3 in Basic? Do you mean 3 o'clock?

    No. Three years old. (I'm probably exaggerating, but not really much...) My program was:

    10 print "XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXX"
    20 goto 10

    makes the screen full of pretty crosses
    (of course, I had to hit break to stop the program running...)
