Mike

Status

  • Fixed the functional tests!  Yeah!
  • Put the functional tests on markusproject.org homepage – though they act funny in an “off and on” sort of way…
  • Reviewed some code
  • Closed #530 (next/prev submission links in grader view no longer skip completed assignments in 0.6 – needs to be pushed to trunk)
  • Wrote a blog post about closing #531:  http://blog.markusproject.org/?p=1103


Next Steps

  • Review more code as it comes in
  • Turn the rest of Byron’s email into tickets (can’t believe I haven’t finished that yet)
  • Take a look at some other high-priority fixes maybe to patch 0.6
  • Brace myself for possible MarkUs support…CSC148 and CSC209 assignments due tomorrow.


Roadblocks

  • This is a heavy week and a half for me – that’s why I did most of my work over the weekend.  Might not respond to email this weekend, and will be pretty bogged down until next Wednesday sometime.

Victoria

Status

  • Completed first set of wireframes for the Assign Graders View.
  • Got useful feedback from Karen and Farah during last night’s UI meeting.

Next Steps

  • Start prototyping for the Group tab.  That is, the view users use to create new groups and modify existing groups.
  • Summarize new usability issues and ideas from last night’s UI meeting and write a blog post about it.

Roadblocks

  • Learning how to use a new application for prototyping.  I’m slowly getting the hang of it! 🙂

  • handling validate files with a space and checking configuration on startup is on reviewboard

Next Steps

  • finish up the codereview

Farah

Status

  • Fixed a bug related to alphabetical pagination which was causing the alphabetical categories to get re-calculated each time the user switched between pages instead of only when the number of items per page is changed (and learned about session variables)
  • Re-factored code to make the GradeEntryFormsController lighter by moving some things to the model instead
  • Finished the unit tests for the grades table
  • Dropped in on the UI meeting on Wednesday
