Donald P. Story submitted the thorshammer package. Version: 2020-01-13 License: lppl1.2 Summary description: Assessment based on AcroTeX quizzes Announcement text:
WARNING: Adobe Acrobat DC or Adobe Acrobat XI is required for post PDF-creation. Any PDF-creator application is supported. This package implements an idea by Thorsten G. for assessment using PDF quizzes produced by the exerquiz package. Thorsten not only wanted to pose multiple choice, multiple selection, and fill-in type questions, but also wanted to ask extended response questions that would be manually evaluated. Once the quiz is graded, the instructor may optionally pass the quizzes through an Acrobat action sequence to extract the student's name and grade from the quizzes. The extracted information is saved to a tab-delimited TXT file. The instructor can later merge this file into a larger spreadsheet. If intriguing, install thorshammer and try this workflow. dps
