      Exam Question on Data Design

      I've just had to input the answers to a series of mock GRE exam answers into a spreadsheet. There were 20 students, and 48 questions. Each answer should have been one of: A, B, C, D, or E. I also input a list of correct answers. To input and check the data took an hour. The spreadsheet calculated the percentage of correct answers. We used to do this each year as part of the CSci Department's Outcomes Assessment procedures.
