Remark Summary UI

with 2 comments

I am currently working on ways to display the mark summary during remarking and after remarks have been completed.

This is what the instructor view currently looks like:

And this is what the student view looks like:

I am having trouble deciding on my own how the summaries should be laid out. In my opinion, the current views seem a bit cluttered and messy, but I haven’t come up with good ways to show this information. The highlighting of the old mark when remarking also seems a bit awkward to me. I am wondering if anyone out there has any suggestions that would make this look better? 🙂

Some ideas I had:

– Separate Remark Summary tab? We wanted to be able to compare old vs new marks on the same page though..

– Collapsable information for old marks? Old mark info would show only if user clicks on or hovers over a button.

MarkUs 0.9.3 is out!

without comments

The team is pleased to announce MarkUs 0.9.3!

MarkUs 0.9.3 fixes a nasty little bug that prevents students from viewing their test results.  If your students have been complaining that they can’t see their test output, well, this is the release for you.

Or, if you’re running 0.9.2 and want to patch up – download the patch here (you’ll want to apply sequentially).  It’s short, sweet, and shouldn’t require any special configuration.  All wins.

Great job team – keep up the good work!
