I'm working on converting a course to make it free to the students, and I'm considering using Ximera. What I haven't found online is documentation for/information on tips and best practices for randomizing values for problems in Ximera, and how well it will work. I have two main concerns:
I'd first like to find information on specifics on how to write randomized questions in Ximera in ways that will be easy enough to do so that we can have TAs and not overly tech-savvy instructors help write the questions/set up the course.
Secondly, does anyone know of a Ximera course already running somewhere that does use randomized values in many questions, and are there significant issues/delays/server overload problems with the actual day-to-day experience of the students in the course? We have ~1500 students per semester taking this course that we want to convert from our current paid system.
EDIT: this is for a College Algebra course.
