Android Based Exam Paper Generator
Exam Paper Generator provides a solution to choose challenging, well framed questions and make it easy for the instructor to generate it within a short period of time. This can be done in a few taps of the hand as it is an Android application, therefore accessible at any time and place. It contains various modules which enables the system to deal with all questions easily. The modules like admin module, user module, and question entry and question management makes it an effortless task. From the entered input the paper is generated and saved as a .pdf file which can be kept for own or distributed as per the user or admin requirements. n normal scenarios, the examination committee in an institute works in a very conventional manner. This way is time consuming and makes all instructors tired of doing these same activities frequently. Our project removes these drawbacks and complexities. In this android application we have implemented a system in which random questions will be picked by mapping it with the conditions provided. Prior to this, administrators can enter the formatted questions in the database (also called as a specification table). Through a randomization algorithm, the questions are chosen depending on the chapter, marks and Bloom’s Taxonomy levels. The question paper is generated according to this specific pattern by the admin/instructor to avoid time consuming jobs, and by students, to get it practiced prior to their exams. This paper is available on hand at all times since it works on the android platform for mobile devices.

Due to the growing field of education, conducting exams and preparing appropriate papers for the same is proving difficult, inefficient, time consuming and a redundant job for the instructor. Therefore, many applications, software and databases have immerged to combat the situation. Our team has looked into such various applications beforehand, they include the following.This is one of the more popular systems that has immerged which intakes the question bank and a criteria and gives the output of a single question paper.  It includes fuzzy logic system for creation of an examination paper. Yet, falls behind in real-time and practical generation and is limited to desktop use. AlkaLeekha, etal  also worked on the automated question paper. This systems too intakes the question bank with other important features like error watching and non-repetition but it is available only in desktop format and can intake only a certain limit of questions at one instance and deals with lower complexities. SurbhiChoudhary  etal also works on the system which provides a big database and the option to select difficulty. But, it falls behind in portability and complexity and lack of offline use. P.H. Potgieter  worked to find out the computerized system to evaluate computerized question paper which is one step ahead. Vijay Krishnan Purohit,  etal also performed to generate and manage the system on the similar line.In this system We have strived to overcome the drawbacks presented in these systems such as non-portability, static databases, one-tier specifications and much more. III.NEED FOR EXAM PAPER GENERATOR E-PAGE overcomes all the drawbacks stated above in an instant and provides more functionalities such as: 1.Specific questions as per constraints given by the admin with nothing extra added in. 2.No repetition of questions in the paper. 3.Level wise entry: We have considered three out of six constraints of Bloom’s Taxonomy (Remembrance, Understanding and Application) to evaluate students based on their knowledge, understanding and ability to apply themselves. 4.Ability to format the pattern of the question paper as per the institute’s (admin) needs. 5.Ability to have a paper ready at any time due to its portable nature on mobile devices.
Evaluation or examination is an important integral fragment of teaching learning process. Now a days it also became important that how to relate course outcomes (Cos) to this fragment. In this paper we have implemented the Android based Exam paper generator which generates paper based on Specification table, which leads to easy calculation of CO attainment level. 2.Questions from Question bank are selected with the application of multiple constraints with minimum time requirement. 3.This implementation generates the exemplary question paper with a very few taps on the Android based Application 4.Randomization and Non Redundancy is also taken in consideration while generating the Exam paper. 5.Hence the consequential Android Based System is much more optimized, Randomized, no redundant, multi-constraint and Secure System
E-PAGE is designed keeping in mind the many future possibilities that can improve the application to be more portable and dynamic in nature.  These include: 1.Along with engineering institutes, this application can be developed for important milestone exams such as 10th and 12th boards. This will prove to be a boon to the students as they are more inclined to solve multiple papers. 2.This application can take its true form when the specification tables and the large amounts of questions, are put in a dedicated cloud database thus unlocking a whole new dimension of portability. 3.With the addition of cloud, E-PAGE is surely to be made available worldwide using the Google Play store. 4.With the large database that it requires, security threats are a major concern. Encryption of the generated papers for safe distribution among staff. A more secure database can also be achieved, making sure no one but the authorized personnel can have the option of inputting into it. 5.With this we will be able to provide a computerized evaluator which will work depending on the key words listed and standard definitions
