Abstract—Auto-Generated Test Paper (AGTP) has been
deeply studied for many years, however, it is still a difficult
problem and the certainty to access the best test paper (TP) is
not guaranteed yet. In this paper, we put forward a method for
AGTP based on knowledge embedding, which makes AGTP
easier and faster. The knowledge to be embedded is studied and
the mechanism behind it is analyzed. The embedded knowledge
in this paper is from both the constraints of TP and the
information of question repository (QR). The experiments
validated the proposed method and found it is not only faster but
also costs less computational resources to access the best TP than
other method, such as evolutionary algorithm. What impressed
is that the cost time to access the optimum does not rapidly
increase with the size of QR. The knowledge plays the important
role in AGTP, especially to efficiently improve the performance
of the algorithms.
