[LON-CAPA-users] Lon-Capa generated Scantron Exams across two course sites...

Yes, I believe there is a clean (not necessarily convenient) way. I have meetings all afternoon, I'll try to reply this evening or tomorrow.

Just a warning that exam grading is a "carefully calibrated" mechanism, so experimentation is discouraged.

The easiest way might actually be to generate a separate "exam course" with only expired roles but combined enrollment. You could then generate and grade the exam in that combined course.

The way I was thinking of (but need to try out) involves generating a "code pod" in one course, downloading it, and then uploading it to the other course … but I don't remember the details.

> Hopefully there’s a simple answer for this... Up to now our instructors generating Lon-Capa exams have been using only one Lon-Capa site for their course(s). An instructor who’s just taken up this approach for this semester, however, has two separate course  sites for her two separate lecture sections.  IS there ANY way to generate identical sets of 8 different exams in the two separate Lon-Capa courses?  There are TAs who do discussion sessions for both Lectures, so normally all of their students would be in the same exam room, but plan B will be to meticulously separate the two lecture sections each into their own set of exam rooms to avoid the situation of a student in section D taking an exam generated for section F....  Unless there IS a way to somehow share the seed between the two sections and generate identical sets of exams. Thank you all for sharing your expertise!
