More software advice...

I got such a great response last time I asked for a referral to graph-creation software (yeah OmniGraphSketcher!), that I thought that I'd throw out another request.

Does anyone have a good piece of software for storing and sorting test/quiz/assessment questions and assembling them into finished printable assessments?  I'd definitely need something that has easy image support, and an efficient way to organize all of the questions by topic/level/etc. Something that allows editing of the text parts would also be helpful.  If it could store solutions as well, even better.  I'm assuming that I'll put my standard rubrics in as questions that I can group on the last page, but a more native support would be awesome too.  Oh, and I like to put graph paper behind each question.

That's not too much to ask, is it? :)


  1. I wish. This is the piece of software I'd love to see. I was hoping we'd be able to make a problem database that could do this. I'm finding evernote to be somewhat successful, but it isn't ideal.

    My thought would be to really grok LaTeX and build a database that just held code for problems (with images) and you could then have a series of macros to assemble the test.

  2. I use Examview. It comes free with many texts. I'm not sure how much it cost, but it can do most if not all you mention above.
