Creating exercises for tutorials and exams is part of lecturers’ daily business. Manually creating new exercises
for each course is very time expensive. Literature shows many technical solutions in terms of online learning
platforms supporting exercise generation, answer checking and students’ progress follow up. Most approaches
solve specific problems and cannot be generalized in a way that a pattern for system design can be deducted.
In this paper we point out a generic model for human interaction in the automated exercise generation process
by identifying general constructs of exercise generation and by applying them on the outlined user interaction
pattern. The application of the findings in a prototype for multi-criteria decision analysis indicates viability of
the explained concept.
