CTAN Update: exsheets

Date: January 23, 2013 10:47:26 AM CET
Clemens Niederberger submitted an update to the exsheets package. Summary description: Yet another package for the creation of exercise sheets. License type: lppl Announcement text:
There has been a potentially breaking change: the {tasks} environment previously provided by ExSheets has been extracted into a package of its own (`tasks') now shipped with and being part of the exsheets bundle. This does not change any syntax per se. However, the options for the environment are no longer set with \SetupExSheets but with \settasks. Also the object that is used for the list template and its instances has been renamed from `exsheets-tasks' into `tasks'. Another breaking change while we're at it) is a syntax difference with the {tasks} environment: the optional argument for the number of columns is no longer set in braces but parentheses. This is deliberate as it reflects the optional nature of the argument better and is consistent with the syntax of \NewTasks, too. Additionally the labels of the list got an additional offset of 1ex from the items which will lead to different visual output. In some cases this might actually lead to the most annoying changes. In this case say \settasks{label-offset=0pt} which should cure things again. Unrelated with the above there have been improvements to the random selection of questions which seems to work properly now.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/exsheets . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/exsheets (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

exsheets – Create exercise sheets and exams

The package provides the means to create exercises or questions and their corresponding solutions. The questions may be divided into classes and/or topics and may be printed selectively. Meta-data to questions can be added and recovered.

The solutions may be printed where they are, or collected and printed at a later point in the document all together, section-wise or selectively by ID.

The package provides the means to selectively include questions from an external file, and to control the style of headings of both questions and solutions.

As of May 2017, this package has been superseded by its official successor xsim. exsheets itself is now considered obsolete, but will stay alive, and will continue to receive bugfix releases. However, new features will not be added any more.
