Hi. I am building a site for my school in Drupal 7. I want my students to be able to check result of their exams/tets online. Please what is the best approach?

Hi and welcome, Motomboni

Sure, Drupal can do that. Where do you have the results stored at the moment? That will be the key to deciding the best approach.

Thanks for your prompt response. I am considering importing the results as csv ( from Excel). If there is a better option, could you help share it with me? I'm a newbie. Thanks

Hi Motomboni

Sure, happy to help. I guess there's a few things to think through here.

A CSV file would be great.

More things to think about:
1) How do you want the content the displayed? In one huge table?
2) Can everyone see everyone else's scores?

What I want is for each student to see his/her scores only after inserting his/her username and Password. Thanks.

OK, that's going to be considerably harder.

Here's what you'll probably need to do:

1) Create accounts for all your students.
2) Go to Configuration > Account information and add fields to the user profiles. These fields will be "Exam Results" or "Test Results" and they will contain your student's scores
3) Export all your user data. Perhaps into a CSV file.
4) Add the exam results to the CSV file.
5) Import the CSV file.
