Part 2 >>

Part 1: first steps and templates for new problems

Create a new problem

  1. Select a section in the Checkin Tree view which should contain the new problem file.
  2. Call the menu item File -> New -> Mumie Document or Course.
  3. Select the document category Building Blocks (TeX) -> Problem -> Generic TeX problem
  4. Select one of the following subcategories Consecutive erros, Input problems, Mc problems or Plot function problem
  5. Choose a name for the new document.
  6. Select Next.
  7. Select the layout template and hit Finish.
    A new TeX file will be created and opened afterwards.

Edit an existing problem

Double-click on the desired document either in the Checkin Tree or in the Packages view. An editor will be opened where you can edit the document.

Selecting the appropriate templates

Category Layout Description Examples
Consecutive errors consecutive errors Examples with numerical input depending on each other. The evaluation of points takes this into account
and points are awarded to consecutive errors.
Examples
Input problems Input number Examples with numerical input, random numbers,adjustment of random numbers, permute answers and pools of variables. Examples
Input function Examples with functions as input and corrections use functional of input e.g. the derivative.
The influence of score on selected questions is shown too.
Examples
Input matrix Examples with matrix as input and corrections. Examples
Input interval Examples with interval as input and corrections. Examples
Input finite_number_set Examples with finte set as input and corrections. Examples
Input cases Exampes where answers depend on conditions. Examples
rounding Exampes where answers depends on precions Examples
Input text Correction compares strings. Very simple identities are used, e.g., $a+b=b+a$, $a-b = -b +a$, $a(b+c)=ab+ac$, but not binomial formulas. Examples
MC problems yes/no This is a mc problem example of the type yes-no. For each choice say yes if the choice is correct, no if the choice is wrong.
In addition, there are several question pools. The system will choose, which question(s) are displayed in the applet.
Examples
unique This is a mc problem example of the type unique. For each question there is always exactly one correct choice.
In addition, the function of the question pools and the permutation of the answers is explained.
Examples
multiple This is a mc problem example of the type multiple. For each question several correct answers are possible.
Bear in mind, that for that type of question that at least one choice must be true.
Examples
Plot function plot function Examples like input or mc problems, but here you can see questions, which are augmented by a canvas with a plot of several functions. Examples

Disabling or customizing the automatic labeling of questions

As a default all questions are labeled automatically with Latin letters.
You can disable the automatic labeling of question by adding the command \showQuestionLabels{no} to the problem environment of the TeX file.

\begin{problem}
  \showQuestionLabels{no}
  ...
\end{problem}

You can further customize the labeling type with the following parameters in the showQuestionLabels command:

parameter label type
no no numbering at all
yes or alph alphabetical: (a), (b), ... [default value]
Alph alphabetical upper-case: (A), (B), ...
num Arabic numerals: (1), (2), ...
roman Roman numerals: (i), (ii), ...
Roman Roman numerals upper-case: (I), (II), ...
\begin{problem}
  \showQuestionLabels{Roman}
  ...
\end{problem}
