      From Steve Faith:

      "... regarding the re-import of Scantron grades.

      Seems that the issue is when they do re-scoring. This means that a subset of Scantrons get re-evaluated by the machine and a new .xls file is produced.

      When they use Import and give the GB item name as the same name of the existing GB item, the import fails with a message indicating that a GB item with that name already exists. It turns out that re-scoring is a more common practice than we may have initially thought. I think that we need to come up with an easy way to make sure that additional imports can be easily appended/merged with an existing GB item."


      On all three sites tested, Importing the original site specific Scantron was completely successful. When attempting to re-import a Scantron file with a subset of changed scores, the following message was generated:

      "The scantron assignment entered has previously been imported. We have changed the assignment name so that it will be imported uniquely. If you wanted to replace the old data, then please change it back."

      This implies that the original Scantron data can indeed be updated, however, upon changing the Scantron file name back to the original, the following message is generated:

      "There is already an existing item called "

      {specific Scantron file name}

      " in this category. Please enter a different name for the grade item."

      The request fails and the only remaining option is to cancel (see GRBK-403).

      Is the initial error message in error when it advises that changing the file name back to the original will allow replacing/updating of the original Scantron data?
