Public blogs:

too many meetings, not enough dev

Friday 24 April 2009 04:55 pm

Seem to have spent most of the week in meetings, so not a huge amount of development.

auto-generate class evaluations
Physics wanted to use this tool, at first sans-staff sections, so edited to allow staff sections as an option when generating the evaluations for the cluster.

PG DB
tweaked the reports/show to allow HoD/PG to save/submit. Added in 'reports pending' to allow overview of reports yet to be completed for the session. Bit of work with the chemists to iron out a few oddiities with students not on SPIDER who's reports were not appearing correctly.

myAssignments
bug in staff version of myFiles_info that blanked out assignment name in assignment_details table for non-file based assignments on update. Messed up assignment live status. Easy fix. Also tweaked feedback template linked to assignment if superadmin users editing - non-author templates were not listed causing them to be blanked.

EEL
fixed bug not allowing editing of individual scores - forgot to up the counter to 25 in line with last weeks tweak to the other sections of the exam results tools

activity builder
attempted to begin modifying this tool to allow for project allocations for final year students in SIPBS. No progress due to other fixes/meetings...

another thrilling week of SPIDER developments

Friday 17 April 2009 05:06 pm

template site
while creating/ updating the ddp site using the SPIDER template system, made a few tweaks to the tempate site code - centred site, switched various sections to use div layout instead of tables, reworked the config from inc_globals to a db table editable via admin/editCongif, added meetings as option to posting news items on home page.

exam listings
SPIDER can now handle 25 mark sets per class - previous max was 15, but one class hit this limit. Easily changed (upped max var in scripts and added extra fields in database)

PG DB
fixed a few bugs in student_reports for students not registered on SPIDER; reworked staff_view to display title above reports properly; updated show_report to have a 'view only' option

in development
BBC style box layout for home page undergoing testing on DEV server

updates this week

Thursday 09 April 2009 02:16 pm

help wiki
added/ moved a few pages from the old help - groups, user lookup, switch user group, batch copy/move

groups tool
reworked student view for group management. Fixed groups so that you cannot rename group illegally (punctuation etc) or rename it to the same name as existing group; now updates discussions and info properly when group name changed.  Added option to allow 'self drop' from group and 'last join' date for self-sign up groups. Changed creation of self-sign-up groups to allow session choice (was defaulting to all). Fixed view groups to show in natural order (so 'Group 2' appears before 'Group 10').

PDP
fixed problems with duplicate credits for same year for some students
