I have uploaded a perl module -- countresptypes.pm -- to a jce
directory in my LON-CAPA portfolio in the msu domain. The file will be
available until Sept. 1 00:00 EDT.
The URL you can use to download it is:
If you download this file and ask your system administrator to place
it on your LON-CAPA server in /home/httpd/lib/perl/Apache with
-rw------- 1 www www /home/httpd/lib/perl/Apache/countresptypes.pm
and also add the following text:
ErrorDocument 403 /adm/login
ErrorDocument 406 /adm/roles
ErrorDocument 500 /adm/errorhandler
with permissions/ownership on the file of: -rw-r--r-- root root
service httpd reload
a Course Coordinator will able to use:
to display totals of response types in a course.
Later today I will upload a modified version of countresptypes.pm
which will display response type counts separately for each folder in
LON-CAPA Academic Consortium
Quoting Itay <itayf at nospammail.net>:
> For each course that uses lon-capa in our college, we would like to know
> how many problems are numerical, multiple choice, etc. What would be the
> best way to collect the information?
> At present the only method I can think of is to analyze the 'Award
> details' column in the grand table that stores the students responses.
> If this is the only way: I would appreciate a pointer to the list of all
> possible system responses such as 'APPROX_ANS' and friends.If there
> is a better way: please show me the way.
