Creating an online test

I'd like to create a test that people can take online, which is graded when the person finishes and the result is emailed to someone. I'd prefer to make it in Dreamweaver or something and host it myself, but if it has to be an external site (like Surveymonkey is for surveys) that would be okay. Pay site would be okay if it wasn't super expensive. I would expect a pay site to have the test taker create a login, store the results of the test, and show the person what mistakes they made when it's over. If I make it myself it would be okay if it just had a field where the person put their name so that when the results email arrives we know who took the test.

I've tried to google it but I mostly find sites that give you tests, not ones you can create yourself.

Thanks!

    If you'd prefer to make it in Dreamweaver and host it yourself why don't you just do that? It's fairly trivial to set up a database with test questions and answers, and code a site (my preference would be in PHP, but obviously that depends on what you know) to query the database, display test questions in an HTML form, and email (or store in the database, or both) the responses when submitted.

    I'm just learning Dreamweaver as I go, so I think I'd need a tutorial or something to get this done in a reasonable amount of time. That, or if you know of a really good book I could pick that up. I'm sure it can be done, I just can't do it (with the knowledge I have now, anyway).
