Several articles exist on the PCSchool Technical Blog for how to create and format Result Entry XML’s for assessment input:
XML creation details and definitions being the main one.
We have also ‘unlocked’ the formula for using specific colours in result entry xmls! This means that schools can create xml’s with custom colours:
1. if you have a particular colour you wish to use you will need to find the RGB value (Red:Blue:Green) of the colour. You can usually find this using websites such as http://www.w3schools.com/colors/colors_groups.asp
2. Take the RGB (Red:Green:Blue) value of the colour and apply the following formula: (Rx256x256)+(Gx256)+(B) = number to use in xml. So the above colour would be 11529966
Some examples of colours include:
