Additional Notes & Results

 

Email data to client for

validation

 

 

Jill

 

04/17/2001

 

Questions & Answers from the database to verify they are correct.

Professor Domínquez responded with a note that answers without accents which are otherwise correct should not be counted as wrong.

 

This causes a major design problem whose fix is not scalable across the entire project (at this point in the project).  We will note our reasons for not incorporating this request in the implementation manual and give suggestions for future fixes.

 

Our current solution to this issue is to incorporate new testing instructions to insist the student use the accents, with a direct link to the special characters section of help if the student needs to review how to add accents.
