Creating and Grading On-Line Tests with Exam Builder
Exam Builder takes advantage of the capabilities built into Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Notebook, yielding some of the most powerful features available in algorithmic exam generation. Use random number functions, tables, and graphics in a document. Create a wide variety of course materials for use in your courses: exams, quizzes, tests, tutorials, problem sets, drills, or homework assignments.
Save Time by Eliminating Manual Grading
After course materials are created algorithmically, Exam Builder can be used for on-line and automatic grading. How much time you save depends on your teaching and exam style.
How Exam Builder Works
Exam Builder generates course materials from source files you create with Scientific WorkPlace or Scientific Notebook. You specify an exam problem with formulas and conditions, which may contain random numbers and conditions to be satisfied by the quantities computed from the random numbers. When a quiz is read by Scientific WorkPlace or Scientific Notebook, actual numbers are generated until all the conditions are satisfied. Each time a student opens your quiz, the details of each question will be different.
Regardless of the level at which you teach—arithmetic, trigonometry, algebra, calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, probability, or statistics—you'll find the Exam Builder invaluable.
