Even more problematic, probably, is that parents are almost certain to know (or be able to obtain) their child's ID number, and FERPA protects the student from his parents' prying eyes.

About the only way I've seen this executed in a way that arguably meets FERPA is to allow each student to select a code number at the beginning of the class, or even better on each test, under which the results will be posted.

Or you can just put the grades on your CMS and not worry about it! [Doesn't help toward the original goal, however...]
