Assessment plays an important role in the process of learning. Multiple choice questions (MCQs) are suitable candidates to fulfill this role. We present an approach for automatically generating MCQs based on the content presented in slides. It extracts named entities from slides, and queries a knowledge base to create different varieties of MCQs and appropriate answer options. Users can choose between different levels of difficulty for the generated questions and answer options. The approach can be easily extended to generate other varieties of MCQs. Results from a user study confirm the applicability and appropriateness of the approach.
