[[Image:Click_scoring_tools.png | right | alt=(Click Scoring Tools.)]]Use the '''Scoring Tools''' to export student's scores or performance data from WeBWork to a comma separated values (CSV) file. These files can then be
* downloaded for use with a spreadsheet program, and
* used within WeBWork to automatically send students personalized email to inform them of their scores and/or other scoring data.
To export homework set scoring data to a CSV file, do the following:
* Click '''Scoring Tools'''
* To score one set select it and press the '''Score Selected Set(s)''' button. To score multiple sets, highlight them and press the button; this will create a "totals" file which combines the scores from all of the sets to give final scores.
The options available function as follows:[[Image:Select_sets_to_score.png | right | thumb]]
* '''Pad Fields''' adds spaces within the fields of the scoring file. This displays nicely as HTML, but may cause trouble when importing the scoring file into a spreadsheet application. It is checked by default, and it is recommended that you un-check that option to produce a file for use in a spreadsheet application such as Open Office Calc or Excel.
*'''Include Index''' adds a second column for each homework set; the second column reports the success index for the corresponding set for each student.
*'''Record Scores for Single Sets''' creates the totals file, but also creates two additional files for each homework set selected:
** '''s<SetName>scr.csv''' containing the status of each problem in the set for every student, and
** '''s<SetName>ful.csv''' containing the information in the previous file and additionally the number of correct and incorrect attempts on each problem in the set for every student.
*After clicking the '''Score Selected Set(s)''' button, the exported CSV file(s) will be available to download. A link to download each file will be available on the Scoring Tools page.
*These scoring files, along with back-up copies of any older scoring files, are accessible from the File Manager.
