Import and export settings

Data can be exported as a CSV file. The language setting determines which separator and decimal sign will be used. For the encoding of the file ISO-8859-1 (Latin-1) is normally the right choice. This encoding is used in Western Europe, America, Australia and large parts of Africa. You may also select UTF-8 which also supports non-western characters such as Arabic, Cyrillic, Greek, Chinese or Japanese. For the export of results you can specify with 'Export empty results' whether the file will contain rows for students that have not yet started modules. When this setting is set to 'yes', the exported file can become very big. A file with the results of a course that contains 100 modules, will have 100 rows for all students, even for students that have not yet started. You can also specify what fields (columns) need to be added to the file for the export of results and students.
