Manyex is a tool for preparing exams and tests from a database of exercises with questions. It creates the exams in LaTeX so that you can process them with the Tex/Latex system.
To operate Manyex, you need a working TeX/LaTeX installation and a basic knowledge of this system.
In this version of Manyex, web form exams are prepared to work
Manyex selects randomly the exercises and permutes the questions, so that you can generate different exams from the same database of questions.
It provides several formats:
– Normal Latex exams, to print and distribute among the students.
– Web Form exams, these are written as separate files for each
exam, also in LaTeX, but to be processed by
a free tool to convert from
LaTeX to html.
– Answer files, both in normal format and in web format.
– Answer key file, just each exams with the correct answers if multiplechoice or true/false.
