Default how to send numerous pages to the printer

I am at a loss to know how to accomplish this. I want to present the user with a list of students with checkboxes next to their name. I want the user to be able check which students they want grade (single page) reports for then loop through that selection and print those reports. So far this is no problem. The problem lies in how to open the webpages (reports), print them then close them. Is there a good way to accomplish this? Idealy it would be nice if the user didn't even see the report on the screen but the report just came out the printer, meaning I would rather not have a bunch of flashing browser windows if thats possible. THanks much.

First of all, this is not really an ASP-question, as ASP is a serverside scripting language, and what you want is to control client-side behaviour.

That being said, I guess you could do some tricks with client-side scripting - I seem to remember that you can use some CSS-thingies to control pagebreaks.
