Do try the Xercise Engine my students made in Java. It has 3 exercise types: fill-in-the-blank, multiple choice, hangman and matching pairs. You can design courses with these exercises on html pages. The author/teacher can decide which page the student goes on to, depending on how well the he/she does the exercise.

Look at the demo book my students made, at:

At present we are giving the whole package away for free (for non-commercial purposes), in exchange for feedback. We'll charge a  modest fee for a licence of the upgraded version when it's ready.

punkttegn Marking Essays. Read about electronic marking at the address from where you can also download the software:

As more and more of our students' work is submitted in word-processed form, it seems logical that we begin to develop tools to mark and annotate written assignments quickly and clearly using word-processors. This article describes some tools which I have developed for marking electronic documents using a word-processor, and discusses some of the advantages and drawbacks revealed by my early trials of the system. The macros and templates I have developed for MS Word 7 and WordPerfect 6.1 for Windows can be downloaded from links in the article.
