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.

  1. Here are a few ideas:

    1. Simplest – I’m kind of leaning toward the separate remark summary tab. We have had instructors who use around 20 criteria for an assignment, and it really isn’t possible to see both in the same screen anyway.

    2. Another possibility might be to add another column to the summary for the changed mark,

    3. More complicated (and I’m not sure of its value) – Or, if we wanted to get fancy, what about showing the new marks, but with the changed marks in a different color? Hovering over the mark would display the original mark.

  2. Nice work Vivien!

    +1 for a “Remark” tab.

    It seems unintuitive to have the OLD marks highlighted. If anything has to be highlighted, I’d have the NEW marks highlighted. Anyhow, I anticipate that users would mostly look at “Old: …” and “New: …” headers.
