Python project?[edit source]

What do you think of making Wikiversity Python as your project this Spring? I would recommend that you start in your user space and work there until you know what you want to do. Then give your page a name, such as [[Python/Guide to Python (official) tutorial]]. guyvan52 (discusscontribs) 18:59, 5 December 2014 (UTC)[reply]

I think it is something I could do. 13hartc (discusscontribs) 19:09, 5 December 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Just a thought on random quiz generator. I think Pilot can do everything you want. The only thing it does not is allow for an open source for other to use. But I know that several other instructors use it and just have one test bank. In the short term it may help save you time in only needing to make the question and have Pilot do the work. 13hartc (discusscontribs) 02:35, 6 December 2014


My (maybe false) understanding is that Pilot does not allow for questions that use an equation with random numbers. These are the mainstay of a large class of physics and engineering courses. On the other hand, Pilot might well be better for the conceptual quizzes such as Astronomy and How things work. Are you or anybody you know familiar with Pilot?
In addition to pilot, there are testbank codes that take text documents and make them into testbanks. I think they are free, and I don't think it would be hard to use Python or some other code to convert to and from wikiquizzes. Joe Cavanaugh knows about at least one such Pilot-alternative and I will ask him to show it to both of us.--guyvan52 (discusscontribs) 13:30, 6 December 2014 (UTC)[reply]

FYI on students making semi-anonymous image contributions.[edit source]

Another request: Parallax lab photo and time-lapse video[edit source]

No big rush to do this, but we need one good photo of the reenactment to be placed here at Physics_and_Astronomy_Labs/Parallax. It occurred to me that the time-lapse video won't make us look bad if we inform the reader that we were attempting to get a crowd of students to pretend to repeat an experiment that we performed the previous day. Their "passivity" could be interpreted as being confused, or it could be interpreted as being in no hurry to finish the task since it was the last ten minutes of class and they had nowhere to go. Above all, the time-lapse something that actually happened. Let's post it! --guyvan52 (discusscontribs) 21:29, 8 February 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Checking your astro test[edit source]

Since Grumpy25 has been exposed, you or anybody you know can freely check answers for the final exam on his (my) user page at User:Grumpy25 --finally got it rightGuy vandegrift (discusscontribs) 23:37, 30 April 2015 (UTC)[reply]
