2010-04-09 Released examinator-0.1 the first official release. I hope also others will find it useful.


eXaminator generates multiple choice exams in LaTeX quality. All you have to do is to maintain a collection of questions in a simple plain text format. Finally specify how many questions should be taken from each collection file. eXaminator will choose by random and maintains a history (in a hidden file in the local directory) to guarantee that questions are reused as seldom as possible.

For each lecture you typically creat another exam configuration file where you basically specify which coverpage should be used (you can prepare it as LaTeX file) and how many questions from which collection file should be chosen.

You can also insert a picture to a question.

Use at your own risk. If any plane crashes due to a faulty exam then this is completely your fault.
