NAME

AMC-annotate - completed answer sheets annotation after marking for AMC multiple choice exams.

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

auto-multiple-choice annotate --project project-dir --names-file students.csv [annotation options...]

DESCRIPTION

The AMC-annotate.pl command annotates papers scans with scores for all questions, global score and mark, resulting in PDF files (one for each student, or one single file).

    General options

--project project-dir

sets the project name or directory.

--data project-data-dir

gives the directory where data files are (default value is project-dir/data).

--pdf-dir pdf-dir

sets the project pdf directory, where to output annotated scans (default value is project-dir/cr/corrections/pdf).

--names-file students-list.csv

sets the students list file name.

--names-encoding encoding

selects an encoding for file students-list.csv (default is utf-8).

--association-key key

sets the key (column name in the students list file) that is used for association. Default value is stored in the database from value actually used for association, so this option should not be used.

--subject subject.pdf

sets the path to the PDF question file (default is project-dir/DOC-sujet.pdf).

--compose mode

use this option if you want to take pages from the subject when there is no boxes to be filled on them (for example, question pages before the annotated answer sheet). When mode equals 1, the pages are taken from the subject, are filled or not according to the students answers (the same as on the answer sheet), and the same correction marks are drawn as on the answer sheet. When mode equals 2, the pages are taken from the corrected answer sheet (so the ticked answers are the correct ones), and no correction marks are drawn.

--corrected corrected.pdf

sets the path to the PDF corrected subject (default is project-dir/DOC-corrected.pdf). If not present, this file will be built using values from options --n-copies, --with, --filter and --filtered-source).

--darkness-threshold t

sets the darkness threshold. Default value is stored in the database from value actually used for scoring, so this option should not be used.

--darkness-threshold-up upper_t

sets the upper darkness threshold. Default value is stored in the database from value actually used for scoring, so this option should not be used.

--csv-build-name name-model

sets the model for building students names from the students list file. Default value is (nom|surname) (prenom|name), so that the name is built using the nom column content (or the surname column if the nom column does not exist), followed by the content of the prenom column (or the name column), so that the result should be OK for French or English simple CSV files.

--id-file ids.txt

gives a filename where to find the ids of copies to annotate (one per line, either the student number if photocopy mode is off, or student:copy if the photocopy mode is on). If no file is given, then all copies will be annotated.

--debug file.log

gives a file to fill with debugging information.

    PDF output options

--single-output

use this option if you need all annotated copies in a single PDF file. Default behavior is to build one PDF file per student.

--sort s

sets the sort key (only useful when using --single-output): use

l

to keep students in the same order as in the students list file.

m

to sort students according to their marks.

i

to sort students according to the copy id.

n

to sort students according to their names.

--filename-model model

sets a file name model for annotated PDFs. In this model, some sequences will be substituted:

(N)

is replaced by the students name (see --csv-build-name).

(ID)

is replaced by the student number.

(COL)

is replaced by the value of column COL in the students list for the current student.

The default value is (N)-(ID).pdf.

    Source file options

These options are used when the --corrected path points to a non-existing file, so that this file can be rebuilt.

--src mcq-source-file --n-copies n --with latex-engine --filter filter-name --filtered-source fs.tex

see AMC-prepare(1).

    Options for embedded scans

When present, scans are embedded in the annotated PDF file. The following options control the quality of the embedded scans, to reduce the annotated file size.

--embedded-max-size maxsize

sets the maximal size for scans (in the format widthxheight, in pixels). Default value is the empty string, which means there is no maximum size. Scans that are larger will be reduced before being included in the annotated file.

--embedded-format format

sets the format for scans inclusion: jpeg or png.

--embedded-jpeg-quality quality

sets the JPEG quality (from 1 to 100) for jpeg embedded scans.

    Annotation options

These options controls what kind of annotations are being to be drawn.

--font-size fs

sets the font size, in points, for annotations.

--text-color color

text color for annotations. Default value is red.

--verdict header

sets the text header to be printed on each first page of the students copies. This text may contain CR characters for multi-line headers. Some sequences are substituted in it:

%S

is replaced by the student total score.

%M

is replaced by the maximum total score.

%s

is replaced by the student mark.

%m

is replaced by the maximum mark.

%(ID)

is replaced by the students name.

%(COL)

is replaced by the value of column COL in the students list for the current student.

--position pos

sets the position where question scores are to be written:

marge

the scores will be written in the left margin

marges

the scores will be written in the closest margin (left or right).

case

the scores will be written near the boxes

none

the scores wont be written.

--verdict-question perl-expression

sets the text to be printed next to all questions, through a perl expression to be evaluated (if you need a simple text, simply quote it with "). Some sequences are substituted in it before evaluation:

%S

is replaced by the student score for this question.

%M

is replaced by the maximum score for this question.

%s

is the same as %S, but rounded to nc significant digits (see option --ch-sign).

%m

is the same as %M, but rounded to nc significant digits (see option --ch-sign).

A standard value for this option is "\"%s/%m\"". You can also use tests (with the perl syntax ( TEST ? IF-YES : IF-NO )) to write Valid if the score is the maximal score, or Failed if not, using

--verdict-question "(%S==%M ? \"Valid\" : \"Failed\")"

--verdict-question-cancelled perl-expression

same as --verdict-question, but applies for cancelled questions (see allowempty scoring strategy). The default value is "X".

--indicatives

use this option to request boxes annotation for indicative questions (these questions scores wont be taken into account while computing the global score. The correct/wrong status is often irrelevant for these questions, so there is no point correcting the corresponding boxes).

--line-width width

sets the line width (in points) when drawing symbols to correct answers.

--symbols symbols-definition

defines how boxes will be annotated. symbols-definition is a comma separated list of H-A:shape:color constructs, where H is 0 or 1 depending on whether the box has to be checked or not, A is 0 or 1 depending on whether the box is actually checked or not, shape is one of none, circle, mark, box and color is a color (name or #RGB, see ImageMagick or GraphicsMagick documentation for details). Default value is "0-0:none,0-1:circle:red,1-0:mark:red,1-1:mark:blue".

    Lengths

The following length can be given with a unit (in, ft, pt, cm or mm).

--dist-to-box d

sets the distance from the boxes (going left) where to write questions scores when using --position case.Defaults to 1cm.

--dist-margin d

sets the margin size. Defaults to 5mm.

--dist-margin-global d

sets the margin size for the header. Defaults to 3mm.
