Trying to pre-empt an exam problem for later in the year!
Our students are required to supply a copy of databases/ss/word doc produced - students regularly forget their login details especially around exam time - so I've set up a generic login as a backup.
However, under this generic loginthey can't save to their home folders - don't want the teacher to go around with USB pens - have had problems here (for another post!) - have had a few ideas but not sure if any make sense:
1. a form/script running on the school website to upload files to a server?
2. a form/script running on the school website to upload files to the web server? -- really not sure about storage available for this one thought!
3. a form which would email the file directly to the teacher email account?
4. save into a shared folder - concern here about two files of the same name overwriting each other - plus permission here might be too open to allow students copy other students work.
In 1 of the schools that I worked in before, I used to set up exam users.They all had My Doc's folders for the users. I just gave the teacher that was in the room for the exam a list of usernames and passwords and they just logged who was using which username fr the exam.
I wouldn't upload work to a webserver with it being exam work.
Am I misunderstanding this, or are you trying to set up some scripting or an FTP site so that students don't have to remember their own password? Seems like a huge amount of work to address a non-problem...
When I was at Uni you weren't allowed access to your own logon during an exam anyway assuming that you may cheat off your saved work. We were each allocated an exam logon and password at the start of each exam which was unique and got rid of the issue of people forgetting.
The saved work files were then just grabbed out of the individual docs folders by a script afterwards and put into a marking folder that the teacher had access to.
This kind of system would probably save a few hedaches and could be automated along with providing extra non-cheating measures during exams.
