Working group created at Sakai Conference 2012 Atlanta for ideas and work on improving assignments.

<TODO: Fill in Notes from session>


Sakai 2012 Conference Meeting around Assignments & Assignments2.!digest.action?sid=1102

Atlanta Tower 1401

Previous gap analysis should be re-evaluated to determine how to decommission Assignments (people will move to Assignments2 when parity is reached) so that development efforts can be combined on Assignments2.

A couple of people in the room suggested they might be able to hire Longsight on behalf of the community to build certain features. But they don't even 

Question 1 hour in: Is there an offical roadmap here? (Laughter).

Someone suggested typepad to add email addresses. Someone else remembered newbies can't find anything because we don't use same resources. Megan May, IU, suggested a hybrid. Here is the list of people showed interest during the BOF and offline.


  • Coalesce support
  • Communicate out to create priorities out of Differences Between Assignments & Assignments 2
  • Identify resources (money, people) to close gaps.
  • Define Assignments roadmap and 'finish line' when development resources will be then re-allocated towards Assignment2.
  • Move community resources to Assignments2.
  • Move forward en masse with development in Assigments2.

Oxford intends to be working on Assignments 2 to bring it in line with Assignments 1. We will start work in the next couple of months so we'd be VERY interested in planning this with other interested parties..

    Feature Requests:

    • Group assignments
    • Peer review assignments
    • An option to leave the "grading" area without saving anything (for professors that work F2F with TAs to review submissions and not overwrite one another)
    • Download Lite - flatter .zip archive (e.g. SAK-19147 - Getting issue details... STATUS ) to help professors that want to get everything and just read
    • Comments from Assignments reflected in Gradebook (partially addressed in Assignments2)
    • Anonymous grading (e.g. professor has 3 TAs and wants TA to grade but not see the student name of submitter). Even professor not seeing names but has option at end to reveal names.
    • Per Tonco, ability to tag, flag, or assign sets of students to a reviewer, e.g. TA "Jill" is assigned to students with last names A-C, and this becomes filterable so Jill can see her students to grade quickly and professor can review their work quickly
    • Rubrics manager attached to assignments so professors can share the rubric to students and quickly grade by clicking on cells and it adds up the values in end
