    Abstract

    The MacQTEX Randomised Quiz System has been under development and in use at Macquarie University since 1999. It provides online quizzes in PDF format for mathematics, having randomised question parameters which allow students to practice many examples of the same quiz. The quizzes are automatically marked and contain fully worked solutions which aid students in understanding the mathematical concepts involved. The staff interface contains a suite of tools which allows lecturers to monitor student progress and to create new quizzes. Since the presentation of the original system at the 2001 AUDC Conference, MacQTEX has undergone significant changes, including a large number of new features, increased functionality and a new look and feel. The quizzes have been let loose on students, and the system has proven robust and easy to maintain.
