Mike Wu

Status:

  • Working on issue #1028:
  • Implemented colour-coding for the rubrics: green for selected marks and yellow for old marks.
  • Set unedited criteria to old marks upon changing marking_state to complete.

Roadblocks:

  • Need to decide on some UI details:
  • For example, when starting on a remark request, does the total shown on the page start with the original total mark and them adjust to remarks or start with 0 and reflect the actual remark result in the database (which is not populated with the original result at the beginning)?
  • Populate extra marks (i.e. bonus/deduction)? could and probably should be done in a separated task I think.

Next week:

  • Sort out all the UI details and submit a pull request for #1028

Marc

Status:

  • Reached a point where my level of progress can now be integrated into the master MarkUs branch. I have begun to work on making jQuery compatible with Prototype by using jQuery in a noConflict mode. I have also been making sure none of my changes have broken anything throughout the MarkUs application.

Roadblocks:

  • Have a problem with some of the features of the new data tables for displaying students, but should be resolved once Prototype is renabled.

Next week:

  • Keep working on getting jQuery to work with Prototype with jQuery being in a noConflict mode.

Alysha

Status:

  • Worked on fix for issue 1027 (going over code base and updated it to use appropriate result related methods)

Roadblocks:

  •  takes some time to understand what certain areas of code are doing to know which is the appropriate fix for it

Next week:

  • finish up fix for issue 1027
  • work on some remark related bugs

Ian

Status:

  • Added code to allow for unlimited tokens for test scripts. Tokens are currently not used anywhere so it’s just a boolean somewhere waiting to be used when we implement student run tests. Added code to choose between using the latest or best mark for all test scripts.

Roadblocks:

  •  None.

Next week:

  • Possibly make a full test script or work on getting students to be able to run test scripts.

Mike Stewart

Status:

  • Initial UI for the grader tab for grade entry is complete, with all of the kinks worked out.

Roadblocks:

  • None.

Next week:

  • Modify the functionality to assign graders on a many-to-one basis to users, instead of to groups.

Oussama

Status:

  • Submitted pull request for issue 1035

Roadblocks:

  • Waiting for pull request to be merged

Next week:

  • Keep working on grades sheets’ viewing functionality for TAs

Nick

Status:

  • Worked on displaying test run position with Redis and Resque

Roadblocks:

  • Redis-status requires the perform method to be a class instance method, but right now it’s just a module method. It might take a lot of code refactoring to change it.

Next week:

  • Keep working on displaying test run position and test run progress

Daryn

Status:

  • Began making changes to make jQuery code noConflict() to be compatible with Prototype
  • Working on update_collected_submissions function used in the Assignments dashboard.

Roadblocks:

  • None

Next week:

  • Meeting with Marc this Friday to regroup on progress and goals for the end of the semester

Daniel

Status:

  • Worked on submissions, and integrating the existing API. Also started documentation.

Roadblocks:

  • Thinking of including small examples for working with the API. What language would be preferred out of Java, Python and Ruby?

Next week:

  • Finish up the assignments routes.
