First of all thanks for your great work. This is just what we need for our survey-needs.

Now back to my question.
We are also looking for software we can use to run our online assessments / tests.

Basicly we are offering training in different categories. We would like to have an online "exam" where our students can "graduate".

Is this possible with LimeSurvey?
Basicly this would mean that we need to mark which one of the question-alternatives that is the correct one. And put a time-limit on the test.
Then some way of grading the answers and give the student a "Pass" or "Fail" depending on his answers.
Ideally some sort of autogenerated pdf-diploma to be sent with a pass-mark.

Is this possible or easy to modify to accomplish?
Or does anyone know of a software that would fit this need?

Thanks a lot!

There is no timelimit for the whole survey, as far as I know. there are certain limits for specific questions possible.

Now for the grading you can have a look at "assessments" in the documentation and see if this will fit your needs. The PDF diploma you would have to custom code. You could pass the assessment result via endurl to a script that either generates the diploma or tells them, that they did not pass.
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

To set a general time limit, you need to code some additional Javascript.

Besides assessment, the Expression Manager offers ways to check answers, assign score and calculate totals.

When it comes to generating a PDF, there is no other way than coding your own script. I have done that for a customer of mine by reading data directly from the DB and summing up results for several courses. If you are interested, I can probably share a sample "diploma".
