Installation

Gradem Home Config Files Installation Download

 

Version: 2.2

To install the system on a Linux, Unix, or Mac OS/X 10.4 computer, perform the following one time steps:

  1. Download the _Link(gradem.tar, tar file).
  2. De-tar the file; this should create gradem/bin/ and gradem/demo1/.
  3. Copy the scripts from the gradem/bin/ directory created to your ~/bin directory.
  4. Depending on the shell interpreter you use:
    1. If csh or tcsh, edit your ~/.cshrc file adding:
      setenv PYTHONPATH ".:$HOME/bin"
      
      Then execute the commands:
      source ~/.cshrc
      rehash
      
      from within a terminal window.
    2. If bash, edit your ~/.bashrc file adding:
      PYTHONPATH=.:$HOME/bin; export PYTHONPATH
      
      Then execute the commands:
      source ~/.bashrc
      rehash
      
      from within a terminal window.
    This enables Python to find the shared gradelib.py library.

  5. Now try the which egrade.py command. It should respond with the correct path.

  6. Edit the configuration parameters found at the top of gradelib.py. Remember you can always re-edit this file later.

  7. You should now be able to mark the students found in the directory gradem/demo1/.

These steps are a one-time only event; the next time you login, everything should be correct.


System Requirements

The system requires Python 2.3, including Tkinter. On a Mac, you must be running Tiger (OS X 10.4).
