Ver­sion 2.6 of the exam doc­u­ment­class. Grad­ing ta­bles and point ta­bles can now have mul­ti­ple rows or mul­ti­ple columns, there's a new op­tion for two-sided doc­u­ments to have points ei­ther al­ways in the outer mar­gin or al­ways in the in­ner mar­gin, and when fill­ing space with lines or dot­ted lines those lines can be in color. There are also fixes for sev­eral ob­scure bugs.
The pack­age’s Cat­a­logue en­try can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/exam The pack­age’s files them­selves can be in­spected at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/macros/la­tex/con­trib/exam/

exam – Pack­age for type­set­ting exam scripts

Pro­vides a class exam.cls, which eases pro­duc­tion of ex­ams, even by a novice. Sim­ple com­mands are pro­vided to:

  • cre­ate ques­tions, parts of ques­tions, sub­parts of parts, and sub­sub­parts of sub­parts, all with op­tional point val­ues;
  • cre­ate a grad­ing ta­ble, in­dexed ei­ther by ques­tion num­ber (list­ing each ques­tion and the to­tal pos­si­ble points for that ques­tion) or by page num­ber (list­ing each page with points and the to­tal pos­si­ble points for that page);
  • cre­ate head­ers and foot­ers that are each spec­i­fied in three parts: one part to be left jus­ti­fied, one part to be cen­tered, and one part to be right jus­ti­fied, in the man­ner of fan­cy­hdr.

Head­ers and/or foot­ers can be dif­fer­ent on the first page of the exam, can be dif­fer­ent on the last page of the exam, and can vary de­pend­ing on whether the page num­ber is odd or even, or on whether the cur­rent page con­tin­ues a ques­tion from a pre­vi­ous page, or on whether the last ques­tion on the cur­rent page con­tin­ues onto the fol­low­ing page.

Mul­ti­ple line head­ers and/or foot­ers are al­lowed, and it's easy to in­crease the part of the page de­voted to head­ers and/or foot­ers to al­low for this.

Note that the bun­dle ex­ams also pro­vides a file exam.cls; the two bun­dles there­fore clash, and should not be in­stalled on the same sys­tem.
