online questionnaire w connection to database

hp
I'm currently developing an online questionnaire system for my
dissertation and I have now come across a few problems. I'm developing
an online approach recommendation system. The basic feature is that a
client will answer a number of questions online and based on the
results an approach will be recommended.

There will be four pages with 5 questions on each site, this will all
be sent to a database and based on this an approach will be generated.

I'm using mysql, php and html w/javascript for developing this but the
problem I have is that I'm not sure how the calculation and
suggestions will be coded. I've though of putting an average result in
to the database and then retrieve a ‘matching' approach based on this
with querying using php.

Any other recommendation is MUCH appreciated.
many many thanks!

I'm not sure that I understand that much of what is going on. But
there are some keywords that tells me that all I can do on my part
anyway, is to look for a forum that is better suited for your question.
Really what forum that would be, I don't really know, since I am not
sure what you are asking. But since this is a newsgroup about MS SQL Server,
which you do not appear to be using, I am quite confident that this is
not the right place for you.

Hi

To add to Erlands reply.

Your solution will depend to a high degree on what the questions are and how
they will be answered. Although it may be produce a formula for the "correct
answer" when the questions are simple multiple choice answers it is unlikely
that you can do this if the answers are verbose.
