In the beginning of this year, I uploaded my exercisepoints LaTeX package to the Comprehensive TeX Archive Network (CTAN).
The package can be used to facilitate exercise counting and exercise point counting in a LATEX-document. It counts the number of exercises and it sums all the points of the exercises in a document. Especially for exams it is also common to have an overview of all exercises and their maximal points. This is also supported by this package by providing a macro to retrieve the points of each exercise.
