Uploading your Quiz Files to a Web Server

Once you created an online quiz using either Easy Quiz Maker, Online Quiz Maker, or Flash Quiz Maker, you’ll need to upload the files created to your webserver in order for your students to access your published quiz.

The first step to uploading your files to a web server is to find the files associated with your published quiz in Windows Explorer. To do this:

Using Easy Quiz Maker

Select the Published Quizzes tab and then click on the Web Quizzes tab at the top of the screen.  With the quiz you would like to upload to your web server highlighted, click on Copy to Disk in the Task Panel.

This will bring up the Copy Published Quiz to Disk window, allowing you to select where you would like to copy the files on your hard drive.  I’m going to use an easy to remember location; C:\Quizzes so I can find the files easily using Windows Explorer.

Using Online Quiz Maker

Select the Published Quizzes tab and then click on the HTML Quizzes tab at the top of the screen.  With the quiz you would like to upload to your web server highlighted, click on Copy to Disk in the Task Panel.

Browse to the folder where you copied the published Quiz files using Windows Explorer.

Using Flash Quiz Maker

Select the Published Quizzes tab and then, with the Quiz you would like to upload to the web highlighted, click the View Files to Distribute link in the Task Panel.  This will open a Windows Explorer window with the files you need to upload to your web server.

Once you have a Windows Explorer window open showing the files from your published quiz, you can upload the files to your web server using FTP.  To do this, open another Windows Explorer window and in the address bar type in ftp://yoursite.com (yoursite.com being the URL to your FTP server).

After you hit the enter key, you should be prompted to enter your username and password (these would be provided to you by your web host). Once you’ve entered your username and password and have logged into the FTP server, you should see a listing of files or folders.

Right click in the explorer window and select New > Folder from the menu and enter a new name for the subfolder you would like to upload your files into (you could upload your files into the root directory, but it is not recommended).

Double click on the folder you just created to open it up and simply drag the published quiz files from the Windows Explorer window of your hard drive over to the the new folder you’ve created on your FTP server.

You and your students should be able to access the quiz by going to http://yoursite.com/folder – with yoursite.com being the URL to your web server and folder as the name of the folder that you created and uploaded your files to in the last step.
