exam.cls is a LaTeX2e class meant for the production
of exam questions. It is built as an extension to
existing document classes like article, etc.

With exam.cls one can:
- produce an exam
- produce an exam with answers
- produce a collection of exam questions

Various forms of questions are possible:
- multiple choice
- short answer
- long answer

It is possible to collect small variations of a question
into one main question and select the different possibilities
with a parameter. Also builtin is a random generator, providing
random shuffling of multiple choice alternatives, etc.

The file exam.cfg is included as an example how to customize typesetting.


First produce exam.cls by running exam.ins on exam.dtx,
then typeset the documentation in exam.dtx (the examples
in the tutorial section of the documentation use exam.cls;
ignore the LaTeX warning on the requested package).

exams – Typeset exam questions

Provides a class exam, which allows questions to be multiple choice or free form long/short answer questions. Options include the typesetting of the exam itself, an exam showing all the answers and a collection of questions and answers; questions can be parameterized; use of a random generator provides for automatic shuffling of multiple choice items.

The exam bundle also provides a class ‘exam’. That bundle is therefore incompatible with the present one, and the two should not be installed on the same system.
