[texhax] Creating Exams with LaTeX?!

I was wondering if there is any preferred method (class) to create written
exams with LaTeX.
My exams consist basically only of two large exercises with subitems.
Sometimes I would need a graphic and there is need for equations.
There are about 100-150 subscribers for a single exam.

I checked on CTAN and there are some packages. I simply wonder which one is
in common use, or which one is more or less obsolete.

Furthermore, I would like to introduce some automatism which makes it
easier for me to rate the exams later. E.g. I was thinking to ask students
to fill in the answers in allocated spaces.
Another idea would be some automation to create solution sheets, point and
mark tables, etc.

I am aware that I might not be able to achieve the last ideas with pure
LaTeX. Thus, I am happy to hear what other method you use for this task.
E.g. I thought about using org-mode on emacs to create a metasystem which
enables me to keep all (exam, evaluation, scoring, solution sheet, etc.) in
one file but to generate exam sheets from it.

Thanks for comments, solutions and ideas
