RE: [seul-edu] EduML questions

Hey!!!., why don't you help me out with my gradebook app.  You can view it
and download it at www.linuxlots.com/~dwculp

Its getting there, but still has a LONG way to go.  Was learning XML
(slowly) to make a transition to an XML based file format.

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

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

	The <PEOPLE> section makes plenty of sense to me, but I'm not sure
	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
	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
	session/course/class too narrow?
