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.
