Placement Exam

Is there a way to score an exam (or homework) on the command line? We are going to try to run a placement exam on webwork and so I would like to send names of students that have passed the exam to the registrar's computer everyday. I would like to be able to write a cron job that scores the exam and sends the scores off.

If not is there a file somewhere that keeps track of the scores students currently have without scoring the exam so that I can parse it and know who has passed so far?

Hi Cameron,

I don't know of any utility in the WeBWorK distribution that does this. However, I have a couple of scripts that I use to do essentially what you describe that I'd be happy to share if you're interested. I'm sure that none of them will be what you really want, but they may provide a good place from which to start.
