[LON-CAPA-admin] Scripting exports of exam grade results

We have a need for a new placement exam that will be running 
continuously throughout the semester.  The examinations will be 
drop-in and proctored and the final grade results sent to our student 
information system for processing  (eg. student X got ## points of 
out 30, on this date).

At this point, our baseline operation would be: at the end of some 
time period (eg. daily or weekly) the proctor would export the grades 
to a CSV file (or whatever) and put those files 'somewhere' to be 
reformatted and later picked up by the student information system.

We'd like to avoid the human process of the export and automate the 
export of graded results from these exams on a periodic basis via 
cron, etc.

Has anybody done something similar?  I've been looking for an 
'advertised' method for getting the grades for a particular exam in 
the modules, but I haven't found one yet.  Hopefully I haven't missed 
anything too painfully obvious  ;-)
