Creating Group of Questions in AMC-TXT

Added by Khawar Ali about 8 years ago

I want to distribute the questions in few groups using AMC-TXT. I do not know LaTeX at all. I am trying to use the AMC-TXT but I am unable to create groups of questions. I want to keep questions of different subjects in different groups. I further want to keep the shuffling on within the groups. Please note that I am using Ubuntu 14.04 Desktop LTS on my laptop of 32bit. Kindly advise me.

You have to use a development version of AMC (see http://home.gna.org/auto-qcm/download-ubuntu.en), and use the following syntax:

*( Introductory text

* Question 1
-
-
+

* Question 2
-
-
+

*) Closing text.

See section Question groups section in the documentation that you can fin in the auto-multiple-choice-doc package.

How can you achieve the same behavior using LaTex?

RE: Creating Group of Questions in AMC-TXT - Added by Alexis Bienvenüe about 8 years ago

See section An example with groups of questions and shuffling in the documentation for building two (or more) groups of questions. Then

Introduce group 1

\shufflegroup{group1}\insertgroup{group1}

Introduce group 2

\shufflegroup{group2}\insertgroup{group2}

If you want to randomize the order of the groups, you can define a global group:
\element{main}{
  Introduce group 1

  \insertgroup{group1}
}
\element{main}{
  Introduce group 2

  \insertgroup{group2}
}

and then use something like that:
\shufflegroup{group1}
\shufflegroup{group2}
\shufflegroup{main}\insertgroup{main}

Thank you dear Alexis.
I have tried to use a development version of AMC at http://home.gna.org/auto-qcm/download-ubuntu.en by typing ppa:alexis.bienvenue/test in terminal. Installation has not started. Instead of installation, terminal flaged a message that "No such file or directory". I am just a lay man and just started use of both ubuntu and AMC. I do not have any echnical knowledge or programming language. Please help me step by step procedure.

Looking forward for your cooperation.

Type in a terminal

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:alexis.bienvenue/test
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install auto-multiple-choice

and wait few minutes or more to download and automatically install AMC
