How to use the humble comma delimited (CSV) file to display private coursework marks right on your Moodle coursepage

Today's post is about a crude but effective method to display confidential user coursework data on any Moodle 1.9.x course page. All you need is the Display Data mod (created by Serafim Panov) and an Excel spreadsheet saved as a CSV (comma delimited) file. You can even dispense with Excel and just use good old Notepad to create the CSV file!

Do you like to use Excel to store your students' coursework marks? Like this?

Would you like to feedback the detailed marks to your online-Moodle students, but are concerned about privacy issues?

If replied "yes!" to both questions, then boy oh boy, do I have a treat for you. It's a Moodle treat from 2007 and it's really very simple to use.
