How to add an exam

- Create a new folder for each course named: "AAA ###" where AAA is the course topic such as: MSE, ENSC, ECON,
NOTE: If the course is for grad students as well, you may name the course folder
MSE 480+780 where 480 is the undergrad course number and 780 is the graduate course number.
- Create folders inside the course folder named Final, Midterm, Quiz, Homework, or Assignments, as needed.
- Copy your PDF files into the appropriate subfolders created in step 2.
- Rename all PDF files to the format: YYYY-SEASON-ORIGINAL_FILENAME.pdf where "SEASON" is Spring, Summer, or Fall. Keep the original Canvas filename if applicable.
NOTE: The folder structure and names (Capitalization, spacing, dashes, and keywords shown above) are crucial. Please match the format of existing files.

For admins only
Updating msess.ca to automatically rebuild is automated using travis. See:
99.9% of the time you wont have to do anything once you click the green merge button on the pull request in the github webgui. msess.ca's exam bank will automatically show the new exam after some time has passed. However, if you do not see a commit on the msess/msess.github.io repository after merging a pull request (and you have waited), you may have to start manually updating the exam bank. Here are the instructions on how to manually update msess.ca's exam bank to the current commit.
Once the new exam has been added to the MSESS/exams repository (the pull request has been accepted), you must tell the msess/msess.github.io (our website's repository) to regenerate and load the new exam.
git clone https://github.com/msess/msess.github.io.git
git submodule update --init --recursive
git submodule update --recursive --remote
git add exams
git commit -m "updated exam bank"
git push origin master
remember to use
git status often and google your errors.
