when "post correcting", option to include answer key in csv file?

Added by Esek Yavuz almost 9 years ago

AMC omits the data from the answer key in the csv file. I'm writing a report based on this file and would like to have the key there as well. Is there any way to do this?

Using the "post correction method", I scan in students' papers along with a paper with the correct answers. In the csv file, I find a the header line followed by one line per student, Is there a way to include the answers in the file?

Thanks again!

You mean you need to know the boxes that has been ticked by the students? Then you can use one of the two "Yes" values for option "Ticked boxes" for CSV marks export.

I'm sorry! I'm expressing myself very badly here!

From the documentation under "Alternative Usages"

*Post correcting *
Suppose you want to use a single generic answer sheet for all your exams. You simply print answer boxes on it (say 5 for each questions, and 40 questions), and give the students a subject that you wrote somewhere else. The point here is that the correct choices are not pointed out in the LaTeX file, so that AMC does not know about them. The solution is to give one answer sheet to the teacher to fill correct choices. Then, after scanning and AMC analysis, you simply have to tell AMC which is the teacher completed answer sheet.

As I have been using it, AMC does not export the data from the teacher's sheet to the csv file. I was wondering if there is a way to get it to do that. It could be exactly the same format as the students' answers:the score alternating with the correct answer.

This would be useful in the "post correcting" method because it would make it very easy to include the correct answers in the report. As it is configured now (or as I am able to get it to work now!), a file with the correct answers must be created ahead of time. That's not hard to do of course, but having AMC supply it on the fly would make it so much more convenient. A teacher could bring a subject he or she had written during the hour before class and have the reports done five minutes after class.

Sorry again for the confusion and thank you again and again for this program!

You're right: when using post-correcting, there is currently no line for the teacher's results in the exported CSV file. I will consider adding an option to make this possible.

Since revision r1284, the exported CSV file does include the teacher's results if option Ticked boxes is set to Yes.
