Scoring a Problem Set
You can do scoring from the web. This can be done by any user with professor permissions, and can be done from either the Hmwk Sets Editor or the Scoring Tools. You can either score one set at a time, or get a total score for multiple sets. The scoring procedure creates files (in .csv format) that include the status of the problems, the number of attempts, and also the final score of the problems. Then:
- You can download these different files onto your personal computer clicking on the file names on this page, or from the File Manager.
- These files can be used within WeBWorK to automatically send students personalized email to inform them of their scores and/or other scoring data.
