Project description

This project is a Python parser for the Aiken question format used in Moodle. Aiken is a very simple format to represent multiple choice questions ( It accept two very similar syntaxes:

What is the correct answer to this question?
A. Is it this one?
B. Maybe this answer?
C. Possibly this one?
D. Must be this one!

And this:

Which LMS has the most quiz import formats?
A) Moodle
B) ATutor
C) Claroline
D) Blackboard
E) WebCT
F) Ilias


The aiken module simply expose the load and dump functions that respectively parse a question file and convert a parsed question object back to code. Let us parse a question string:

>>> import aiken
>>> question = aiken.load("""
... Is this a valid Aiken Question?
... A. Yes
... B. No
... """)
>>> question.options
['Yes', 'No']

Now, we make some changes and convert it back to a string of code:

>>> question.options.append('Who knows?')
>>> print(aiken.dump(question))
Is this a valid Aiken Question?
A. Yes
B. No
C. Who knows?
