Jeff,

Thank you for this effort, making gradual progress, who knows where this is taking us, little sacrifices here and there, and the world would be the better for it.

Best regards!
David

Jeff Elkner reminds me of another important goal, integrating SchoolTool Quiz.

Jeff has been funding (personally!) Douglas Cerna to create a system attached to CanDo that allows teachers to create online quizzes for their students.  Individual questions can be tagged with skills in CanDo to automatically update a student's skill rating in the gradebook based on quiz results.

It is quickly becoming a very compelling system and deserves a full description in the near future.

We're aiming to include SchoolTool Quiz in our 13.10 release.
