Not that I'm aware of.

There currently isn't anything completely obvious.

I think the easiest way as it stands right now might be trying a
screen scraping style automation of pressing the buttons to get the
file generated.

If you'd like to investigate it further though, loncoursedata.pm is
the module that makes it easiest to get student data, take a look at 
lonstudentassessment.pm's &csv_outputstudent()  for an example usage.
(lonstudentassessment.pm -> generates the CHRT)

It uses
to get the data.

(If $symb is ommitted it gets the data for everything in the course
for the specified user)

We might want to move this discussion to lon-capa-dev.
