Description
A custom Moodle quiz module which, in addition to the standard Moodle quiz features, analyzes the questions posed to the student for various qualities, such as compliance with Curriculum Standards.
The modified Moodle modules will run on a customized XS School Server operating system. Our goal is to allow results and / or grades, from student activities to be readily available to teachers. Based on their wants and needs, the teachers can then generate custom reports on a class or student and have the ability to determine what types of problems students are finding most difficult. In the end we imagine the XS environment running on an XO itself, allowing the teachers the same portability as the students.

Goals
- Expand upon the PHP of the Moodle Quiz Module to parse questions involving mathematical operations for characteristics contained in the Massachusetts Curriculum Framework for Mathematics.
- Parse mathematical-operation-based and tally percentage of success with each individual operation (+,-,/,* etc).
- Run Moodle with the modified quiz module on an XO running XS, The XO school Server.
- Create Moodle data flow diagram to give an understanding of how the Moodle Server and corresponding database interact with Student and Teachers machines.
- Have Moodle's latest stable release functioning in an XS School Server VirtualBox OSE Virtual Machine
- Have Moodle's latest stable release functioning on an XO running XS using the techniques outlined here.
- Have PHP calls successfully querying mock student results from Moodle's MySQL database running on XS.

Post XS School Server Installation Configuration:
yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment" edit /etc/inittab and change runlevel from 3 to 5 to startup in Gnome yum install mysql-server php php-mysql php-mbstring php-gd php-xmlrpc php-imap cvs service mysqld start mysqladmin -u root password 'mySecurePassword' mysql -u root -p mysql> CREATE DATABASE moodle CHARSET 'utf8'; mysql> exit; chkconfig mysqld on --starts sql server; adds root admin user; logs into server and creates DB; --turns the service on on boot. cd /var/www cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@eu.cvs.moodle.org:/cvsroot/moodle co -r MOODLE_19_STABLE moodle --download and install/update with the latest version of moodle mkdir moodledata chown -R apache:apache moodle chown -R apache:apache moodledata --make directory in /var/www/ and change permissions. edit the file /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf change DocumentRoot "/var/www/html" to DocumentRoot "/var/www/moodle" change <Directory "/var/www/html"> to <Directory "/var/www/moodle"> then you must restart the apache server by issuing the command: service httpd restart
