Thanks for the response. It sounds like a fair amount to trouble to do
it this way. Most folks I know prefer to grade as I indicated above:
fixed weights for labs, homework and exams. Whether there are 8 or 10
problems on a homework set or exam, they do not change their grading
scheme. Above grading is also much more transparent for th student.
Is there any chance that this could be incorporated into lon-capa.
It might actually help conserve resources, considering that spreadsheets
take 15 minutes to generate each time.
