An example describes student use of microcomputers for solving class take-home problems sets. Each student receives individualized problem sets as the input data are randomized. This assures reasonable independence among the students in completing the exercise and offers an improved learning experience. The computer also grades the exercise, eliminating grader errors and time. Calculations demonstrate that computerizing problem sets can result in long-run cost savings to the department. The procedure is inexpensive, easy to use and educationally effective.
