Direc­tory macros/latex/contrib/examdesign

This bundle provides a class examdesign for making exams.  

The class provides several features useful for designing tests
or question sets:

* it allows for explicit markup of questions and answers;

* the class will, at the user's request, automatically generate
answer keys;

* multiple versions of the same test can be generated
automatically, with the ordering of questions within each section
randomly permuted so as to minimize cheating;

* the generated answer keys can be constructed either with or
without the questions included;

* environments are provided to assist in constructing the most
common types of test question: matching, true/false,
multiple-choice, fill-in-the-blank, and short answer/essay

  • mul­ti­ple ver­sions of the same test can be gen­er­ated au­to­mat­i­cally, with the or­der­ing of ques­tions within each sec­tion ran­domly per­muted so as to min­i­mize cheat­ing;
  • the gen­er­ated an­swer keys can be con­structed ei­ther with or with­out the ques­tions in­cluded;
  • en­vi­ron­ments are pro­vided to as­sist in con­struct­ing the most com­mon types of test ques­tion: match­ing, true/false, mul­ti­ple-choice, fill-in-the-blank, and short an­swer/es­say ques­tions.
