We are considering using loncapa for placement testing for some of our math
classes. We would like to set up a course that contains 3 different
assessments (for the three 3 different math classes we wish to place
students in). I'm sure I can easily set this up.
The tricky part is registering students for this course. Is is it possible
for students to "self-register" for a course. I suppose I could set up a
list of "dummy" accounts (student01, student02, student03, etc.) and then
check them off as students take the test, but I was hoping for something
more elegant.
thanks,
jay
