Roadblocks

Status

  • Reviewed more code

Farah

Status

  • Made some final changes to the grade entry form models based on feedback from my grade entry form creation review request and modified the unit tests accordingly. (see review 217)
  • Finished the functional tests and submitted a review request. I spent a lot more time on this than I had originally planned to but I wanted to make sure the tests were quite thorough. (see review 245)
  • Worked on the table view (60% complete)

Next steps

  • Finish the table view and test it. I had wanted to do the “attaching graders” view as well but I don’t think there’s enough time remaining (maybe “simple” grade entry isn’t the best name for this feature :))
  • Documentation for the Wiki
  • Screencast

Roadblocks

  • None this week

Severin

Status

  • Had a meeting with Karen regarding automated testing on Monday
  • Finished up some tickets
  • Created some tickets
  • Did another blog post about automated testing

Next Steps

  • Fix reviews for which I got feedback for
  • Continue writings/analysis regarding automated testing
  • Talk with Mike and Karen about must-fix things for the spring courses round.

Roadblocks

  • None (I’d like to have a 7-day-weekend, though)

Gabriel

  • Fought with cucumber to make it behave around MarkUs… Not much success up to now

Next Steps

  • Document the Flexible criteria features state (wiki)
  • Introduce MarkUs to our colleagues (and share our experience) during our next QA class

Roadblocks

  • Time (because of work and a certain course notoriously known –around here– as Design 3)

Melanie

Status

  • Worked on and finished Ticket #493
  • Worked on Ticket #457
  • Published my Thumb up Thumb down on the UCOSP blog

Next Steps

  • Finish Ticket #457
  • Write some Selenium tests
  • Document the Flexible criteria features state with my teammates
  • Introduce MarkUs to our colleagues (and share our experience) during our next QA class

Roadblocks

  • None

Simon

Status

  • Wrote a guide how to run Selenium tests on the wiki and blog
  • Wrote Selenium tests for the Assignment properties’ view

Next Steps

  • Create tickets for what is left to do on the Flexible criteria feature
  • Document the Flexible criteria features state (wiki)
  • Introduce MarkUs to our colleagues (and share our experience) during our next QA class

Roadblocks

  • Time, I am working on an intense project finishing on December 3rd

Tara

Status

  • Finally committed code for tickets #358 and #405 (adding multiple students to a grouping as an instructor)
  • Finished the index view for the Notes tab (for groupings)
  • Created “new” and “edit” actions and views for the Notes tab (for groupings)
  • Met with Fernando to finalize Notes system, including polymorphic assocations
  • Changed notes to use polymorphic associations for the “noteable” object

Next steps

  • Commit Notes tab code
  • Extend Notes system create form for assignments and students
  • Investigate ticket #436 – Grace periods used are not reported anywhere in the UI
  • Investigate ticket #361 – Grader View: shoudn’t unmarked rubric be expanded by default?
  • Roadblocks

    • None

    1. I am totally sympathetic about time being a major roadblock this week!

      I’d like to see the slides for the QA course posted on the blog and if someone could take a picture at the presentation that would be great too!

    2. […] reports that tell us how everybody is doing.  They follow a very simple format: see these three examples.  The punchlines need to be published on this blog every Thursday, and it is every team […]
