Hi Mark,

> So for those of us out of the loop, remind us what anonymous mode is.

When doing Scantron style quiz/exams you can now print a set of
resources 'anonymously'. They no longer are associated with a specific
user anymore, but rather have a CODE which is used in seeding the
random number generator.

When grading the Scanton forms, the CODE is then associated with that
student for those resources and those resources are graded based of
the randomization based on the CODE rather than the username.

Additionally if the student views the resource after graded it now
shows the random numers etc. that were on the printed form they had
rather than the number etc that their username is supposed to get.
