When finishing the secondary school some stundents don't know what career they are going to choose. This project goal is to implement a Vocational Orientation System in Edubuntu that can offer vocational tests, personality tests and IQ tests. This program will also provide a tool for teachers to compare their students and group them according their skills and personalities.


There are some vocational, personality and all kind of psicology tests that are in the internet and when I look in the Ubuntu repositories there was no applications that can offer this kind of help to students.

Use cases

  • A student wants to know more about his/her personality and take a test to help him/her determine his/her personality type.
  • A student wants to know areas of study that coincide with his skills.
  • A teacher wants to see a comparative list of his students personalities and skills.
  • A teacher wants to see their students IQ.
  • A teacher wants to see the profile (skills, personality, etc.) of an specific student.


  • Create Profile- The students will be able to create their profiles with personal information. The results of the tests will be also stored in the student's profile.

  • Take Test and see results- The students will have a list of tests where they are going to be able to pick one and take it to see the results.

  • View History- The students will be able to look at the results of tests they took in the past and compare them whit their new results.

  • Create classes- The teachers will be able to create a class of students.

  • View and compare profiles- The teachers will be able to see the students profiles and compare them.

  • Database- A MySQL DataBase will store all the information about students and tests.


The frontend of the program will be designed with PyGTK.


The implementation will have the following arquitechture:


The program will be written in Python using the Pydev plugin for Eclipse.


Instead of MySQL how about using PostgresSQL or SQLite as backend. Wouldn't MySQL be bulkier -Shirish Agarwal
