 Andras Balogh - including external scores  2/22/2004; 7:21:09 PM (reads: 1265, responses: 6) I would like to keep all the students scores in WebWork, even the ones obtained on in class exams. I can add columns to the totals.csv file, but they don't  show up in the statistics and in the progress reports. Is there a way to let students view these additional grades in their summary? If not, what is the use of adding new columns to the totals.csv file? (I am using V. 1.9)<| Post or View Comments |>

It's also easy to accomplish (at least for a small class). Here is what to do if you want to report to the students their scores on individual problems (if you just want to report the total score on the exam, just use one problem). I'll assume the exam had three problems worth 20, 30 and 50 points First create a set definitions file, e.g.:  setNumber= Exam1openDate = 02/23/04 at 8:00 amdueDate = 02/23/04 at 8:00 amanswerDate = 02/23/04 at 8:00 am#paperHeaderFile = setExam1/paperHeaderFile.pg#screenHeaderFile = setExam1/screenHeaderFile.pgproblemList =setExam1/question1.pg, 20setExam1/question2.pg, 30setExam1/question3.pg, 50 Note that the open, due, and answer dates are all the same, e.g. the day and time of the exam. Now here is question1.pg  ##DESCRIPTION##KEYWORDS('dummy question')##The only purpose of this problem is to report scores##ENDDESCRIPTIONDOCUMENT(); # This should be the first executable line in the problem.loadMacros(PG.pl,PGbasicmacros.pl,);TEXT(&beginproblem);BEGIN_TEXTThis is a dummy question which is being used to report your score on question 1 on the exam.END_TEXTENDDOCUMENT(); # This should be the last executable line in the problem. You can use the same file for all questions if you don't want to mention the question number in the problem in which case you need to slightly modify the set definition file above. Then build the set. Now go to the Prof page and select Modify Problem Set for Student. For each problem fill in a 1 under "Attempted" and the fraction correct (a number bewteen 0 and 1) under "Frac Corr". For example using our example if a student got 17, 25, and 40 points on the three problems, fill in .85, .8333, and .8 . If it is a big class you can fill in the 1 under "Attempted" for everyone at once by selecting Modify Whole Problem Set on the Prof Page. Hope this helps, Arnie <| Post or View Comments |>
