Unique `separateanswersheet` for all copies

Added by Rakesh Jana 7 months ago

Greetings everyone,

I am currently investigating the possibility of creating a unique `separateanswersheet` for each of my question paper copies. Suppose I generate five copies of the question paper using `\onecopy{5}{}` with the `separateanswersheet` option, then it will create five different answer sheets for each paper code. However, I am looking for a solution to have only one separate answer sheet, on which the students can bubble their respective question paper copy number, similar to how `\AMCcode` is used to obtain their student ID.

Is there any way to accomplish this? I really appreciate any help you can provide.

Maybe you can start with the following template?
You have to check that all answer sheet are exactly the same! (eg. if shuffled, all questions should have the same number of choices)

Thanks for sharing the template, I'll give it a try. I noticed the subject codes are in binary format. Is it possible to use a code grid instead, where students can bubble in A, B, C, D, etc., and A corresponds to 001, B to 002, and so on? It may sound fancy, but we have a large class of around 1500 students using this AMC, and we want to minimize errors. If students only have to bubble in one box for the subject variant code instead of multiple in binary format, the error rate would be much lower.

For example, a sample OMR sheet that I used this semester is attached. So, I want to modify `\AMCIDBoxesAO` so that instead `binarycode`, a code grid should appear with A,B,C,D, and so on. We can assume that there will be almost 26 subject variants.
