KB Gradebook

Students are frequently more concerned about their grades than they ought to be. Reduce some of their academic stress by using the KB Gradebook plugin on your WordPress blog so they can check their grades anytime, anywhere. If you’re like me, you’ll be surprised how frequently your students notice that you mis-recorded a grade.

    While using kb gradebook, After I had pasted in data from excel, I received the errors below.

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in C:\wamp\www\wordpressmu\wp-content\plugins\kb-gradebook.php on line 509

    Hmm. I should make the program check that what was submitted was valid. I’m guessing that you pasted in either a single column or a single row of data? The program expects a gradesheet with at least two rows (the first has column names, the second is a student’s info) and at least two columns (an email address and then a grade).

    Then again, this could just be something funny. What browser and OS are you using?

    great plug-in yet i can’t use it: probably an os-related error but copy/pasting just isn’t working : cells content doesn’t correpond with headers. why not introduce an import function of the .xls file? not that i’m a programmer at all myself…

    firefox under os x 10.4

    Thanks for the feedback Thomas. From the .xls comment, I assume you’re using Excel?

    Ultimately, I’d like to have it do .xls or .csv files (or both), although it may be a while until I can work on it.

    No worries, Adam, I just found out I can use a simple copy/paste from an online spreadsheet software. However, once I’ve set-up the gradesheets no passwords are mailed. The message “You can have your password sent to you by email if you do not know it” is frustrating since it doesn’t say how to do so. I’d love to use the plugin but I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong here.

    Adam, emails are sent with “wordpress” as sender. That’s annoying: some of my students don’t see my emails as they end up in their junkmail folder. Any idea how I could change the mail sender to my own name? Thanks! Thomas

    Hmm. I thought I had things set so that it would come from whatever you have your name set as in your profile. I’ll have to take a look. In the meantime, take a quick look at your profile and make sure everything looks right.

    I checked my profile, all is set to my name, except for user name which is set to “admin” and for which there’s no editing possible.

    Sorry about the delay. I haven’t forgotten, I’m just up to my neck writing a paper for a conference. It may be a few weeks until I can look at it. If you figure anything out, though, be sure to post a note.

    Thomas and Kevin:

    This plugin is very much on the back burner for me right now. Sorry. Kevin: What version of WP, PHP, etc?

    I would like to know where the passwords of the pupils are stored. In what table do they guard? Thank you

    Onio: Look in the plugin file. That’s all explained in a comment near the top.
