Some networking here has produced a mild interest in seeing if we can 
effectively use LON-CAPA to deliver math placement tests to students 
during orientation in the summer.

In principle, this seems fine. As always the devil will be in the details 
(registering users, load spikes, getting scores out, security,...)

Has anyone done anything like this? Does anyone have advice they want to 
impart about potential pitfalls or really good features for this?
