Abstract: Formation of quizzes is a vital problem as they are an important part of learning. To create a quiz on a particular topic, its related terms need to be identified for further use in extraction of questions on the topic. These terms are referred to as entities for the topic and the task of distinguishing entities from general purpose terms is termed entity discovery. We know that discussion forums and question-answer sites on software contain questions using programming terms in their posts. In this work, we mine patterns in user queries from such a forum and then automatically discover entities for programming languages using these patterns. We use these entities to extract questions related to the programming language and form automated quizzes using them.
