This is an database with web interface and JSON API storing MCQ-questions. This system is being developed for Uppsala University and intended to be used for the medical education programs in Sweden.

The primary goal is to provide a common resource and central repository for MCQ-questions that can be used in exams. It will support randomization of questions and an advanced query language for power users.

Web interface

Provides functionality for browsing, searching and export/import questions. Comes with builtin question editor and project manager.

File formats

Currently NMFB is the default file format for import/export, but QTI and UMCQ is also supported for easy integration with external platforms.


The API supports find, get, put and delete operations on questions. Unlimited attachment sizes are supported.

The project

The source code for the NMFB database is hosted on GitHub. It's not really useful without a bank of supported question files to import.
