Lake Campus Symposium: Creating a bank so students won't break the bank
https://bitbucket.org/Guy_vandegrift/qbwiki/wiki/Home/
The conversion to LaTeX should make this bank more compatible with VLEs
Quizbank - Quizbank/Python/LaTex - Category:QB/LaTeXpdf - QB - edit news
Students with minimal Python skills can now write numerical questions

See special:permalink/1863353 for a wikitext version of this quiz.
