Looking for open source Test Management Software

Hello and thanks in advance,

I am building an CBT to test the the computer security knowledge of 200 employees.  The problem is that my company do not have the funding to purchase adobe connect and I do not want to deploy the CBT via PowerPoint email file or link to a network shared folder.  

Please share any information about any open source Test Management Software that I can install on a windows server and can create and conduct computer based online examination by sharing an intranet link.

I am open to suggestions.

I looked into this a while ago and found Moodle at SourceForge:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/moodle/

Here's its own website:
https://moodle.org/

I played with it in a sandbox and it worked well, although I wound up not deploying it in production (not because of any deficiency in the product). It is open source and free, with no licensing fees. A quote from the site:
Moodle is provided freely as Open Source software, under the GNU General Public License). Anyone can adapt, extend or modify Moodle for both commercial and non-commercial projects without any licensing fees and benefit from the cost-efficiencies, flexibility and other advantages of using Moodle.

I don't know if it will satisfy all of your needs, but I think it's a good one for your short list. Regards, Joe

You're welcome. I'm curious to hear your opinion on it. Two things I really liked about it when I first looked at it (beyond the product itself) were its active user community and good documentation.

Moodle reminds me of www.blackboard.com.  Moodle is a powerful and scalable LMS.  I like the back-end logic flow and the wealth of information that explains the Moodle environment,  It is available for different platforms and innovative.  The program meets all of my needs and all I have to do know is download, install, build, and deploy.

The site has a lot of information and I have my work cut-out for me this weekend.  Thank you for expanding my mind.
