In this paper, we propose the e-Learning web system
in which any users can make questions. We also show an
algorithm to assess the answer logs in consideration of difficulty
and validity of questions. Today, education systems such as eLearning
are adopted in many universities, but only teachers
or a limited number of people can make questions in many
scenes so that they bear a great burden of making questions.
Therefore it is possible to reduce the burden on teacher if any
users can make questions. We formulated algorithm to reflect
difficulty and validity of the questions to evaluation and made
Web system to make questions and answer them. We carried
out an experiment in a class of the university whether it would
be possible to make a correct evaluation on real human-made
questions using the system by algorithm of suggestion technique.
As a result, assessment results in consideration of difficulty and
validity were calculated for the human-made questions.
