The eqexam Pack­age Dated: 2016/10/02 Author: D. P. Story

eqExam is a pack­age for writ­ing ex­ams, tests, quizzes, home­work as­sign­ments, etc. It is a stand alone pack­age, yet is tightly in­te­grated with the Acro eDu­ca­tion Bun­dle (AeB). High­lights of this pack­age are as fol­lows:

1.  Can create exams (tests, quizzes, homework assignments) for
    paper, with points in the left or right margins (or both), totals
    for each page optionally shown at the bottom corner of each page.
    Questions can be objective, fill-in, true false, or multiple
    choice.
2.  Solutions can optionally be included in the source file, and
    by changing options, can be displayed (for an answer key), in a
    couple of different ways. A solutions only document can also be
    generated.
3.  Can create multi-part exams, as I often do for final exams, these
    multiple exams are meant to be graded individually.
4.  The one thing that distinguishes this package from the other
    exam package is its support for PDF, and this is where AeB comes
    in. When you have AeB installed, and you select any of
    several options (pdf, links, online or email), a variety of
    things can happen. For example, in the case of the online or
    email options, white space for solutions is converted into
    multi-line text field, spaces to fill in answers are converted to
    text fields,multiple choice questions are converted into radio
    button fields, etc. When the email option is used, a "Submit"
    button is automatically created at the top of the first page of
    the test. The student can take the test online (perhaps in a
    testing lab) then submit responses to the instructor. The email
    that is generated to the instructor attaches the FDF file of
    form data, so the instructor gets a copy of all responses.
    She/He can then open the file and view the responses of the
    student. Get the latest AeB (AcroTeX eDucation Bundle,
    web,exerquiz,etc)
5.  A major option, fortextbook, is designed to support (U.S.) textbook
    authors. Documentation for this option is found in the doc/fortextbook
    folder. See also the series of blogs at
