Education is key to the success of implementing employee programs. MITRE's Purchase Card Quiz Software is an educational interactive software tool that provides cardholders with an opportunity to test their knowledge. The software provides instant feedback to the employee. The supervisor is only notified when the employee passes the quiz.

MITRE developed the Purchase Card Quiz Software as a cornerstone of their MVP Purchase Card Best Practices program. MITRE uses the software to periodically reinforce and validate cardholder knowledge of Purchase Card policy and procedures. The quiz is available to the public at no cost, and can be downloaded here. The software runs in a UNIX environment, and must be tied in with the e-mail server in order to function. Over 200 copies of the Purchase Card Quiz Software have been distributed by Open Channel and MITRE.

While the software was developed specfically for educating and testing users about appropriate uses and procedures for corporate purchase cards ("P-cards"), it can easily be adapted for other on-line quiz applications. However, the software is designed to work with twenty multiple-choice questions, each of which has four choices and a single correct answer. The code could be modified to accommodate different types of questions.

The Purchase Card Quiz Software features:

  • Random ordering of questions and answers so that a different quiz is seen each time. (More than 4 million views result from dual randomization.)
  • A Quiz Home Page which provides a hot link to the Procedures (Open Book)
  • Each question ends with a reference to the specific procedure (user may research prior to answering)
  • Automatic grading of the quiz, within 30 seconds, with results sent via email:
    When completed successfully, notifies both the end user and the Purchase Card manager
    • Cardholder is notified of score, and correct answer(s) to any missed questions
    • Manager is notified of successful completion - no score is reported
    When five or more answers are incorrect:
    • End user is notified of the number of questions missed and advised to review procedures.
    • End user is requested to repeat quiz--receives a different view. (Same Q & A's in different order.)
    • Purchase Card manager is NOT notified of failed attempt.
  • Software consists of perl language script that references TEXT of questions and answers (Q & A's).
    • Program manager may update or customize Q & A TEXT
    • TEXT contents may be revised or edited to test unique and/or other specific knowledge
Refer to Exhibit A for a model of the Certification Home Page with Table of Contents and Quiz display.
Exhibit B is the message(s) received by cardholder & manager.
