I have set up an online exam and my biggest obstacle is the browser and right click menus. What if the user tries to go back and re-submit his/her exam form? How can I control this?

You help would be greatly appreciated.

I use VB.NET

Kind Regards

If it is Web based using ASP.NET you can remove the top navigation bar using JavaScript and disable menu using Java Script as well.

Hi there,
another approach would be using sessions.
-> Use Session variable (Say, Status),
-> Assign a value to it on starting the exam
                 Session("Status") = "Started"
-> Check it on every page
             If Session("Status")="Started") Then
                     'Continue with the test
             Else
                     'Redirects to some other page
                     'There you can display message "oops!!! Already submitted"
             End If
-> Change its value on submit.
             Session("Status") = "Finished"
