forms for testing and CGI routines which "grade" them?

For some "virtual field trips" we're developing for high school
students, we want to have comprehension tests.

I.e., present multiple-choice tests as forms. Clicking on Submit would
send the results to a CGI program for grading, which would give the
student immediate feedback.

My thinking is that the same cgi program should work for several tests,
matching the form info against different test key files with the
correct answer for each specific test.

Would really appreciate pointers to anyone who has done this, or might
be working on something like this.
