iTest is a Qt application for easy computerised examination. iTest consists of two programs:

  • iTestServer -- question/answer database editor and test server,
  • iTestClient -- test client used by students, connects to the server.

iTest makes it easy to:

  • Create and organise a database of questions and answers,
  • Set up a server and a printer,
  • Connect a client computer for each student, which generates a test according to your server settings.

Supported platforms:

  • Mac OS X
  • Linux and various UNIX-based platforms

To build iTest from source, you will need Qt 4.4 or a newer, compatible version.

You have two options:

  1. Compile manually
  2. Use the build script to compile iTest

Compile manually

Regardless of your platform, use the following commands (it is assumed that you have already changed directory to that of the iTest source code):

cd iTestServer
cd ..
cd iTestClient
cd ..

If you're running Mac OS X, type:

qmake -spec macx-g++ -config release

Otherwise, the following will do:

qmake -config release

And finally, compile iTest by typing:


(You can also use any other maketool, such as mingw32-make, gmake or nmake, depending on your platform.)

Compile using the build script

Download and install Squirrel Shell.


Make sure you have the Qt bin directory (usually C:\Qt\4.x.y\bin) in your PATH environment variable. If that is so, you can compile iTest by double-clicking the build.nut script.

UNIX-based systems

Change directory to that of the iTest source code and type:


The compiled binaries will be put into the bin folder.
