Author group: The author group where the exercise will be created.
Internal name: This is the name of the exercise. Please use a good naming convention, to make it easy to find the exercise later on.

Status: Whether or not the exercise can be used in packages already.
Type: Which exercise type do you want to create?*

Set: You can create a new exercise in an existing set. If you leave it to "none", a new set will be created with the exercise creation.
