Mini-Quiz: Database-Driven Websites

by Ron Kurtus (revised 12 May 2008)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. What is an advantage of a database-driven website?

Pages containing certain information can all be updated by updating the database

You no longer need web pages, because the database is the web page

It increases the amount of work needed to display your pages

2. How can an e-commerce site effectively use dynamic pages?

The site can have numerous flashing animations that are controlled by the database

Dynamic pages prevent frivolous lawsuits

Users can sort list of products by name, cost, or color

3. What is the main reason My SQL and PHP are used in many database-driven sites?

People hate Microsoft and are willing to even use inferior products instead

MySQL and PHP are free or relatively inexpensive, and they work fine

MySQL and PHP generate income for the user from their pop-up ads

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Web Design. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
