I am using the examdesign documentclass to write multiple versions of a multiple choice test. The package is great at randomizing question ordering, but I would like to randomize answer order as well. I've read the documentation and haven't found anything. Does anyone know if this is possible?

  • exams can do this, if I understand what you want. My interpretation differs from that of the person who provided the existing answer to this question, however. – cfr Jun 7 '16 at 2:06
  • Thanks, @cfr. exams seems to have not great documentation, though. Are you aware of a minimum working example? – Alex Jun 7 '16 at 4:31
  • The documentation is fine, as far as I remember. You just can't read it on CTAN because you need to generate it from the .dtx in the usual way. If you download it, you can typeset the documentation and see if you think the package might do what you want. – cfr Jun 7 '16 at 15:51

If using another package is acceptable for you, you should consider automultiplechoice, which also provides free software (for linux or osx) to correct the completed answer sheet scans for you. See http://home.gna.org/auto-qcm/
