[seul-edu] EduML questions

I'm toying with the idea of writing a grade book app (this is my first
real foray into the world of GUI/Linux programming, so it's very much
vaporware at this point...)

In thinking about how I might go about it, I ran into some EduML-related

The <PEOPLE> section makes plenty of sense to me, but I'm not sure how
I'd use EduML to record assignments and grades.  Would this go under
<TASKS> or in the <OUTCOMES> block?  What's an <ACT>, and what's a
"plo?"  A short example of 1 class with 1 student who has grades in 1
assignment would be a big help...

Also, I mentally put things into the following hierarchy:

Session (term, semester, etc)
  Course (i.e., Freshman English)
    Class (i.e., Freshman English, Period 1)

Would this hierarchy be a useful EduML addition?  Or is the concept of
session/course/class too narrow?
