This paper investigates an approach for automated testing. A system for generating questions and tests is described, and a case study is given where such questions and tests were used for continuous assessment in a first-year mathematics course. The very positive feedback from the students and staff indicates that this approach to continuous assessment is an excellent way of helping students master the course material and keep up to date, while simultaneously minimizing the time spent by lecturers in setting and marking tests.
