I have a form implemented from hook_form called simplequiz_form() I want to access its data after its submitted.

Below is the code I have written but I can't seem to access its data once its submitted. What am I doing wrong ?

function simplequiz_form_validate($form, &$form_state) {
// here is where we will validate the data and save it in the db.
$thid = db_insert('simplequiz')

'questions' => &$form_state['question'],
I can't seem to access the value of a field questions


return $thid;
