Using Functions in python - special emphasis on apparent reflectance

I am interested in using python to batch process a bunch of Landsat 8 images. I need reflectance as 0-1 or 0-100%, but there is no official Landsat 8 reflectance product. While there will probably be one eventually, I was hoping to use the apparent reflectance function in the meantime. I am new to 10.2 (used primarily 10.0) and I already have several python scripts doing what I need with the reflectance data, but I would like is to convert the Landsat 8 to reflectance using batch processing with a file saved rather than on-the-fly functionality that functions provide. 

FYI, I did figure out how to apply the functions and export the images with the reflectance conversion. I was hoping to avoid doing this individually to the 70 images i need to process.
