I need to create a printable form. Please suggest a LaTeX package that can do these types of questions:

  • Text:
1. Your e-mail: __________________________
  • Paragraph:
2. Describe your neighborhood:

  • Choose one:
3. Your one most favorite fruit:

() Apple   () Pear
() Orange  () Other: ___________
  • Choose many:
4. Pick two fruits that you love least of all:

[] Apple  [] Pear
[] Orange [] Other: ___________
  • Grid:
5. Rate your attitude to these fruits:

        Hate   Don't like  Indifferent   Like   Love
Apple    ()         ()         ()         ()     ()
Orange   ()         ()         ()         ()     ()
Pear     ()         ()         ()         ()     ()

Update: I've edited the question to remove misleading word "questionnaire". I need forms, to get statistics from, not exams and quizzes. Sorry, I'm a bit lost at the English terminology on the subject. See above examples to better understand what I need.

that are always simple tabulars ... – Herbert Jan 31 '11 at 21:09
Maybe this is a duplicate of tex.stackexchange.com/questions/14842/creating-fillable-pdfs – Martin Thoma Mar 3 '12 at 6:37

Recommendable packages are

  • exams - a feature-rich package for creating questions

  • qcm - for making multiple choices questionnaires

More can be found in the section Typesetting Exam Scripts, Quizzes, Flashcards, and Questionnaires in the TeX Catalogue.

Um. Sorry, but in the documentation for both packages I fail to find relevant examples. Most important for me is the support for the Grid type of question. – Alexander Gladysh Jan 31 '11 at 21:07
Also, please note that I'm not creating quiz or exam form. I've updated the question to clarify this. Sorry for the confusion. – Alexander Gladysh Jan 31 '11 at 21:08

This one looks really close to what I need:


Only I can't figure out where to download it. :-(

I tried and can't find it as well. All my Google-Fu didn't helped. Seems to be a student project that was never really published. – Martin Scharrer Jan 31 '11 at 21:28
Looks like it lives here: qdds.org/fileadmin/files/latexstyles.zip – Alexander Gladysh Jan 31 '11 at 21:42
Ahh, hiding behind ZIP Files! Ts, ts :-) Just out of interest: how did you find it finally? – Martin Scharrer Jan 31 '11 at 22:52
Well, just opened the directory listing for qdds.org/fileadmin/files – Alexander Gladysh Jan 31 '11 at 23:28
Implementation seems to be a bit too much ad-hoc though... Had to hack it in several places. – Alexander Gladysh Jan 31 '11 at 23:29

For creating questionnaires with LaTeX I can recommend:

The demo for this package does not have Grid questions... Are they supported? – Alexander Gladysh Jan 31 '11 at 20:51
Can be easily done using a tabular where the tick cells contain \QO. – Martin Scharrer Jan 31 '11 at 21:14
