How to Create Bible Content Exam Files for the Website

You will need to create two files – one with the questions and one with the answers.  Then attach them to Steve (request the e-mail address by visiting They're similar to the format of the paper exams, but here are the details:

Test Question File: TestXXXX.txt

(Replace XXXX in the file name with the year of the exam.  In this file, please put a period after each question number and answer letter. Please don't include any subject headings in the question file. We'll use them in the answer file. Please use the "save as" option in your word processor to save the files as "ASCII text" or use Notepad on a Windows machine to save a plain text file.)

All biblical quotations have been taken from the NRSV.

1. According to the book of Leviticus, which group is to purify

b. sojourners
c. soldiers
d. women

2. Where was the Passover instituted?

b. Jericho
c. Peniel
d. the heights of Moab

Answer file: AnswersXXXX.txt

(Again, replace the XXXX with the year of the exam.  In this file, please do not to use periods after the question numbers and answer letters, but do include question subject headings like "THE PENTATEUCH" – also please be sure to use the numeral one ("1") rather than the lower-case L ("l") or Roman numeral "I" when you type numbers or the Bible links won't work. Also please use "2" instead of the Roman numeral "II" - for example "2 Corinthians" instead of "II Corinthians.")
