You can however set what assessment level spreadsheet is used on a per
resource basis.

So you could create 2 assement level sheets and use one for all the
Homeworks and a different one for the labs, quizzes, etc.

But for the next version one should be able to do

&EXT('resource.title') to get the current resource's title
&EXT('resource.map') to get the internal name of current resource
                     folder (or sequence or page)
and combine them:

To get the title of the current resources folder.

(If you are want to try testing these changes out, you'll need to
patch in:
Spreadsheet.pm 1.61


lonnet.pm 1.693
