This paper gives brief information about a new electronic course for enhanced learning in making optimal decisions using the Multi-Attribute Decision Making paradigm. Emphasis is put on the construction of the exams of this electronic course. In order to provide ready to use tests for students’ exams, an algorithm based on a Monte Carlo method was conceived. This algorithm and its benefits are presented.
