 Arnold K. Pizer - Re: Using Feedback  9/5/2002; 10:18:21 AM (reads: 1097, responses: 0) Yes it does and this is fixed in the new (and as yet unreleased) version 1.8 of WeBWorK. However, it is very easy to change on your current system. Also if you go to the Problem List, check "Show my old answers" (maybe this will already be checked) and then go back to the problem, you will see the student's answer but this is a pain. FIRST METHOD: Edit feedback.pl chaning line 129 from $url .= '?probSetKey='.param('probSetKey').'&probNum='.param('probNum').'&Mode='.param('Mode').'&course='.param('course')."&user=$USER&key=".param('key'); to $url .= '?probSetKey='.param('probSetKey').'&probNum='.param('probNum').'&Mode='.param('Mode').'&show_old_answers=1'.'&course='.param('course')."&user=$USER&key=".param('key'); Notice the extra: '&show_old_answers=1' SECOND METHOD: Go to the CVS repository http://webwork-db.math.rochester.edu/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/ then to webwork/system/cgi/cgi-scripts/ and download the current version of feedback.pl . That will also fix a very obscure bug. If you do that, you will have to edit the first line of the file giving the path to perl on your system. <| Post or View Comments |>
