Improvements/fixes since v. 1.12 include:
* Mac-produced files: hotpot.php now completely preprocesses files with Macintosh and creates a temp file with s instead. (Since DOS files have both and they do not pose a processing problem.)
* Fixed in Grade report: For multiple instances for the same student, the last grade, not the highest grade was being reported.
* Recent attempts are flagged in the "Recent Activity" column, but just for teachers, not students.
Full information on how to install it is available in the Read.me file. The .zip file is also available from: http://tomrobb.com/HotPot.zip
PS: Jean-Pierre Pavlak reports a problem with JMIX. I'll be posting a revised hotpot.php as soon as I have confirmed that we have found a fix for the problem.
Thanks for this module Tom, it's very useful now and when I get it working as you intend it will be a HUGELY useful learning tool.
Martin has the functions that he has developed programmed so that nothing need be done in order for a new module to be proprely integrated. These functions scan the user's moodle/mod folder and then automatically look in the designated location in each for data via standard library functions.
It could be that the Gradebook function is still a bit too 'hardwired' to accommodate new modules into its reports.
If you are referring to the "gradebook with calculated columns" hack in cvs:/contrib/gradebook/course/grades.php: it collects its data from the modules in the same way as the original cvs:/moodle/course/grades.php. So I don't see any reason why grades from some modules should show up and not those from others.
I wonder who those people "in charge of the Gradebook" are . I wish there would be many and they did a complete rewrite. Mine was a quick hack in order to get the functionality in there that we needed and I don't have the time to do a proper job .
Thanks so much Thomas. This is just great!!
