[R] Help scoring a matrix of item responses

Hi All.

I'm new to R and trying to learn the data manipulation routines. At the moment, this is the one that has me stumped.

Imagine n test takers provide responses to k multiple choice items. The result is a (n+1) x k matrix of responses where the first row of the matrix is a correct answer key.

How could you transform the raw item responses into 1s (correct response) and 0s (incorrect responses) by comparing each test takers response to the correct answer key?

Any direction would be appreciated!
