Thanks Stuart and Ray for answering these questions. I still hae a 
couple of questions on the fields in scantron.tab:

(a) What is the CODE used for?

(b) What is Qlength The examples uses a value of either 1 or 10. What 
does this mean?

(c) What is Qon and Qoff? Qoff seems to be empty in the examples. Is Qon 
   designed to explain to lon-capa any discrepancy between the labeling 
of lon-capa question options and those on the scantron form?

(d) What are PaperID and PaperIDlength

Thanks so much for your help.
