One point. If a student has got the correct answer, then selecting the 
"Excused" drop-down menu at the top will not excuse that student. (You can 
override by selecting the "excused" next to the student's name.) If the 
student is excused, when you go back to Current Resource : For ... it 
should show you those students who are excused.

BTW, when you select the excused on the drop-down menu, did any of the 
student's (individual) drop-menu selecting change to "excused". It should. 
It it doesn't, the javascript may not be working properly.
