[LON-CAPA-users] CSV or Excel file of Answers for CODEd paper exams?

I believe there is no facility for that at the moment. See bug #6262. 

Consequently, I (for one) have become REALLY proficient at hand-typing the answers into a spreadsheet. 

I too would like such a feature as I find it more facile to grade the bubblesheet reader output in a local database, although I do also redundantly grade such exams later within LON-CAPA for the purpose of maintaining statistics on my exam question resources within the system. 

Happy typing!

Subject: [LON-CAPA-users] CSV or Excel file of Answers for CODEd paper exams? 

Hi Everyone, 

I am generating CODEd paper exams for students using LON-CAPA. 

The students then answer on bubble sheets created by another system (Illuminate Education, if anyone’s interested). 

I know how to have LON-CAPA print a PDF that has the answers, but then I need to type the answers to each CODEd exam into Illuminate manually. However, if I could get LON-CAPA to generate a CSV or similar file with the answers for each version of the exam, I could then upload those answer to Illuminate, saving time and reducing the chance of errors. 

Does anyone know how I could get a CSV rather than a PDF of the answers to a CODEd exam?
