Hey!  

Long story short, I have been programming testbanks for my 6th and 7th grade math students for the last three years using ExamView.  

It gives all the kids regenerating practice that is automatically graded through their LMS (canvas, blackboard, etc).  It's saved me loads of time and gives the kids immediate feedback.

So I thought I'd share what I made with everyone else!  The page will be updated with more of the resources after I pretty them up a little bit.  

It unfortunately can't be uploaded in D2L or Google Classroom, but everything else is fair game!  Contact me if you need help with it!
