Unformatted text preview: er will send you with the
results of its grading. This will arrive a while after you make the
submission, depending on how large the submission was, how many
other submissions the Grade Grinder is checking, and how long it
takes email to reach you. Generally, you will receive the email
message within minutes of submitting your ﬁles.
You can check on a submission by clicking on the GG Status
button at the bottom of the Submit window. If the Grade Grinder
was unable to grade your submission, it will tell you which of your
submissions have been delayed and for what reasons. 2.4 Preferences and User Data The information that you enter into the main Submit window,
other than the ﬁles to submit, is known as the user data. All of this
information except the Book ID is saved on your behalf, so that
you can avoid typing your name, email address, etc., each time
you run Submit, This information will automatically be entered
into the appropriate ﬁelds when you launch the program.
Submit also has preference settings which may be changed from
the Preferences window, which is obtained by using the Preferences
command from the Application menu (Macintosh) or Edit menu Using Submit / 11 Figure 2.2: Submit Preferences Window
(Windows). If you use this command, a window similar to that
shown in ﬁgure 2.2 will appear. You can change a number of
aspects of the way in which Submit behaves using the controls in
this window. 2.4.1 Proxy Server Settings In some cases, you may not be able to connect directly to the
Internet to make web connections, usually because your machine
is located behind a ﬁrewall. In such a situation, there will be a
computer that you are allowed to access, and this machine makes
connections to the Internet on your behalf, returning the results to
your machine. A computer conﬁgured in this way is called a “proxy
server”. If you need to use a proxy server, you should check the
box marked Use Proxy Server and enter the name of the server, and
the port to connect to, in the text ﬁelds below. You will be able
to obtain the correct information from the corresponding proxy
settings in your web browser, or from a local computer expert.
The default setting is not to use a proxy server, and unless
it is necessary to use one, these settings should normally be left
unchanged. 2.4.2 Preferred Host Settings The Grade Grinder is implemented by multiple computers called
grade servers. There are currently two grade servers, one located
at Stanford University and the other at the University of Chicago.
By default, when you make a submission, Submit will determine
which server is least busy, and send your submission to that server.
This is called “load balancing”. However, if you wish you can ask 12 / LPL Software Manual Submit to prefer one of the servers over the other. To do this,
check the radio button marked “Use Preferred Server”, and then
the radio button that corresponds to your choice of server.
The default setting is to use load balancing, and we do not
recommend changing from the default,...
