The likelihood of cheating then depends on the proximity of the students' desks, and the similarity of the tests. The test-assignment problem is to find an assignment of tests to desks that minimizes that total likelihood of cheating. The problem is a variant of a graph colouring problem and is NP-hard. We propose a new heuristic solution for this problem. Our approach differs from the usual way of designing heuristics in two ways. First, we reduce test-assignment to the more general unconstrained binary quadratic programming. Second, we search for a good heuristic using an automatic algorithm configuration tool that evolves heuristics in a space of algorithms built from known components for binary quadratic programming. The best hybrid heuristics found repeatedly recombine elements of a population of elite solutions and improve them by a tabu search. Computational tests suggest that the resulting algorithms are competitive with existing heuristics that have been designed manually.", notes = "Also known as \cite{SouzaAndRitt2018} WCCI2018", }
