[LON-CAPA-users] multipart problem in test
Thu, 8 Dec 2005 09:23:30 -0600
I needed to know because I'm scared of the unknown. So far we've
only done single-part problems on our tests and I wanted to know what
would happen before I tried it for myself. I'm a coward, OK? You
made me say it. Are you happy now?
Thanks Gerd! :)
