Evaluation System


Info: http://bugs.sakaiproject.org/confluence/display/EVALSYS/Home


The Evaluation System allows any instructor to give formative evaluations to students in their courses and review the results. The system contacts students to notify them of upcoming evaluations automatically. The Cold Fusion version of the system, developed from code received from Columbia University , is currently being used at Virginia Tech.  The system is being upgraded and rewritten as a Sakai application. The Sakai evaluation system is the first large-scale implementation of the RSF framework, a Spring-based web programming framework written in Java.
