Dynamic Display of Marks

The dynamic display of student marks in a Web site allows students to get up-to-date information of the student's performance in the course, as well as a comparison of his or her course standing to the rest of the class.

This feature in the study guide is achieved with the use of a CGI program, $marks5.exe, that is written by the author [11]. The program returns a histogram display of mark distribution of the class on the Web browser, as well as the individual's score on each assignment or test. When used in tandem with on-line testing, $marks5.exe dynamically returns the distribution of marks for the on-line test as the test is submitted on-line for grading.

Access to the display of marks is via the "Student Center" button on the navigational button bar in the study guide.
