To create normal LaTeX exams, the following command has to be given from the example_normal subdirectory:

manyex -n -f desc-test.

All the exams are included in a single file, in this case
`exam.tex` according to the prefix defined in the test description
file (which is also the default). The exams with the answers are written
in `answer.tex`.

Here are the first 30 lines from the file `exam.tex`:

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article} \usepackage{epsf,manyex} \usepackage{master} \pagestyle{empty} \begin{document} \mnglobalheader \def\mnserialnumber{1} \mnpaperheader \def\mnexercisenumber{1} \mnexerciseheader \mnexercisestartheader \smallskip \def\mnquestionnumber{1} \mnquestionheader \framebox[0.5in]{\phantom{T}}\qquad The first quartile is a measure of spread. \mnquestionfooter \mnexercisefooter \smallskip \def\mnquestionnumber{1} \mnquestionheader \framebox[0.5in]{\phantom{T}}\qquad If the distribution is skewed to the right, the mean will be always larger than the median. \mnquestionfooter \smallskip \def\mnquestionnumber{1} \mnquestionheader \framebox[0.5in]{\phantom{T}}\qquad If the mean and the median have the same value then the distribution is unimodal. \mnquestionfooter \smallskip \def\mnquestionnumber{1} \mnquestionheader \framebox[0.5in]{\phantom{T}}\qquad The coefficient of variation is a summary of the form of the ditribution. \mnquestionfooter \smallskip \def\mnquestionnumber{1} \mnquestionheader \framebox[0.5in]{\phantom{T}}\qquad The mode is a summary of the form of the distribution. \mnquestionfooter

COMMENT: “\mnquesitonnumber is not used, it is overriden by the counter
defined in the master LaTeX file, `master.sty`, see above. This is
just the beginning of the first exam with the true/false questions.

The first 40 lines of the file with the anwers, in this case
`answer.tex`, are the following:

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article} \usepackage{epsf,manyex} \usepackage{master} \pagestyle{empty} \begin{document} \mnglobalheader \def\mnserialnumber{1} \mnanswerpaperheader \mnpaperheader \def\mnexercisenumber{1} \mnexerciseheader \mnexercisestartheader \smallskip \def\mnquestionnumber{1} \mnquestionheader \framebox{False}\qquad The first quartile is a measure of spread. \mnquestionfooter \mnanswerheader False, it is a measure of position. With the first and third quartile we can get a measure of spread, since its diference, the interquartilic range, shows as the 50\% of the frequencies around the median. \mnanswerfooter \mnexercisefooter \smallskip \def\mnquestionnumber{1} \mnquestionheader \framebox{True}\qquad If the distribution is skewed to the right, the mean will be always larger than the median. \mnquestionfooter \mnanswerheader True, the mean is sensitive to outliers and will be moved to the right by abnormally high values in the distribution (right-skewness). \mnanswerfooter \smallskip \def\mnquestionnumber{1} \mnquestionheader \framebox{False}\qquad If the mean and the median have the same value then the distribution is unimodal. \mnquestionfooter

COMMENT: Now the actual answers plus the comments (if defined in the exercise files) are written in the LaTeX output. Answers are included for all four exams, with the same layout as the actual exams plus the answers.

Manyex also creates a file with the keys for the answers, called
`mn-correct`. This is how it looks like in this case:

001BABBBBAABABACAABDCDDDDAAA 002BABBBAABABDDEAEBACDBBBAAA 003BBABBBAABACEBDEAACCABCAAA 004BBABBBBAAAAECADCBDCCAAAAA

True/false questions are coded by A:true and B:false. Multiple option questions are coded according to the correct option, and finally shortanswers questions are coded always as “A” with no meaning.

Finally, manyex creates a log with the results of the run in the file
`mn-logfile`. In this case this is the file:
