Things To Do

  • ouexam appears to be incompatible with hyperref? Crashes during \maketitlepage. (Mark George)

  • Specify questions with no marks attached. \question* perhaps?

  • Marks totalling currently doesn’t work with sections where not all questions are to be answered (e.g., “Answer any 2 questions”). At the moment it totals up all the questions, when in fact the total should be less. Workaround: reset the counter to the correct total after the last question in the section.

  • Look at bundling all the various support files into the .dtx file?

  • Figure out how to gobble line breaks before a \end{subquestion} so that they don’t screw up the positioning of the number of marks. A similar issue seems to arise with lgrind’ed listings that appear at the end of questions (but this actually causes things to break).

  • Some way of entering timings for questions (Andrew Long):

Further to our discussion on exam timings. Maybe it would be useful to provide a way to show the timings for each question using your LaTeX exam class? Perhaps they could appear in the margin next to each question.

  • Add up marks for marking schedule and check they are the same as the total marks for a question (Richard?).

  • Generate marking sheets from the marking schedule info? (to appear at end of document)

  • Reinstate question mark subtotals as a class option (format [Question y total x marks]).

  • Options for positioning of mark amounts (end of question vs. in margin).

  • Styles for number of marks?

  • Options for positioning of page numbers (footer vs. header).

  • Different types of questions (e.g., multiple choice, fill in the blank, etc.).

  • Does the draft option need to be passed to the article class?

  • \questionskip: how much whitespace after a question (default \baselineskip). Turn this off when markingschedule is active?
