The main page is where the students enter their current aggregate.

Do you think that is you are not using Visual Studio (it is not a must), the answer will be different? :-)

"Main page"... is it ASP.NET or something else? Tag it! Use "Improve question".

Guessing the page here means ASP.NET, then tagged appropriately for you.

I guess to make both different isolated web page talk to each other directly (Student bio vs Quiz) would lead to a tight coupling. So rather make it independent. Let the saved value go to server or an intermediate service or entity. Such a way you can have a loose coupling.

One more approach you can send using hidden variable.

Take one hidden variable on master page

<input type="hidden" id="textvalue" name="textvalue" />

and you page
<asp:textbox id="TextBox1" xmlns:asp="#unknown">
        <asp:textbox id="TextBox2" xmlns:asp="#unknown">
                runat="server" style="width: 128px"></asp:textbox>
        <asp:button id="Button1" runat="server" text="Button" onclick="Button1_Click" onclientclick="storehidden" xmlns:asp="#unknown" />

<script type="text/javascript">
    function storehidden() {
        document.getElementById('textvalue').value = document.getElementById('TextBox1').value;

in second page you will get the value using Request["textvalue"]

The value also wont able to see in url.
