- In this paper we will introduce an expertsystem for evaluation of online exam. We use fuzzysystem for classifying students based on their usagedata and the final marks obtained in their respectivecourses. We have used real data from nine Moodlecourses with Mansoura University Pharmacy studentsand apply techniques on two hundred students. Thisexpert system will be able to facilitate education andplay the role to play the role of virtual intelligentteacher referring to student capabilities by followingthe feedback mechanisms and will evaluate the onlineexams and questions to measure the difficulty level of exams.The main components of this expert system areInference Engine, Knowledge Acquisition Facility andKnowledge-base that construct back-end of thesystem. We realize the model by a fuzzy rule-basedexpert system with its inference engine that usesvarious inference methods for education.

INTRODUCTIONModern information management systemsenable the recording and the management of datausing sophisticated data models and a rich set of management tools. In the context of educationalsystems, the information typically includes detailsabout learning material, the tasks and the objectives,the course information, the contact information, theteacher and the student profiles, and the informationrelated to student assignments, the tests, the grades,and other records.In this paper, we seek means to model theimprecision of information and simplify the accessto information systems, in terms of fuzzy modeling.The paper is organized as follows. Section 2 presents the knowledge base of expert system for student grades assessment Section 3 discuss thecomponents of fuzzy rule based controller. Section 4

Section 5 shows the feedback of evaluating students and online exams. Section 6concludes the work and indicates future researchdirections.II.
Knowledgebase expert systemAll needed data is acquired from a teacher andstored in a “Knowledge Based” which should beable to face student training and their up growing problem.  We use knowledge base expert systemas follow to model knowledge domain “fig.1”Figure1. Knowledge base expert systemGlobal Data Base consists of student state variables,teaching state variables and exam state variables
Student state variable (xi):
x1-Exercise grade for every studentx2-Exam grade for every studentx3- Interesting coursex4- Student level
Teaching state variable (yi):
y1- Difficulty level examy2-Teaching contenty3-Teaching methody4-Teaching scheduley5- Degree of course usagesy6- Degree of creating motivation.
