This paper focuses on the performance evaluation of a Bluetooth wireless technology based classroom tool. The classroom tool is to help lecturers automate their assignment tests. First, a testing prototype of the tool is presented; the testing prototype uses one master device and two slave devices on Pico-net. As it will be expensive to build prototype for a large class, simulation study is done to evaluate performance of the tool for large classes. The simulation study reveals that the proposed tool performs well also for large class size, if multiple sub-master devices are utilized in Scatter-net environment.
