Iím forwarding this to the mailing list on behalf of one of our instructors
who wants to integrate LON-CAPA with some of the labs we have in our
introductory courses. If memory serves this issue was discussed at the
LON-CAPA conference regarding reading student data entry and then subsequent
calculations based on this data (in particular for lab work). Pointers to
specific resources (with open source code would be a HUGE help).

Hereís the question from the instructor:

I'm trying to incorporate LONCAPA into our labs.  Does anyone have any
suggestions on how to enter data into LONCAPA and then have it calculate
what the correct results should be for the individual lab groups?  Any help
is appreciated, thank you.
