Project - IT acronyms Tester

IT Acronyms Quiz system

Assume that you have been asked to create a simple quiz software to test knowledge student's knowledge about IT acronyms codes. For example for TCP is acronym for Transmission Protocol

The quiz software should ask questions as follows:

What is the full form of <….Acronym…..>?

For example:
Q1.What is the full form of TCP?
Transmission Control Protocol
Q2.What is the full form of DNS?
Domain Name System


The questions should be generated dynamically and the acronym must come from a map which you have initialized. The student answers by typing the full form for that acronym and pressing ENTER key and the software shows another question with a different acronym - this should continue until the software the iterated over all the acronyms in the map

Each time the student enters an answer the software should check the map to see if his/her answer is correct. The software should make a record of which questions were answered correctly and which questions were answered incorrectly.

If any of questions were answered incorrectly the quiz starts again asking the same questions but in a different randomized order.

At the end when the student has answered all the questions the software displays results as follows:

== Results of your test ==
Result of IT acronyms Quiz
Total Questions : 10
Correct answers : 5
