Meeting minutes for October 20, 2008

Demo of UM use of OSP Friday at 12:00.

Sakai/OSP 2.4/2.5

No new issues

Sakai/OSP 2.6 and beyond Development Status

Chuck Hedrick brought up a project he is working on connected with dynamic reporting in the Evaluations tool. There are two aspects. First, when an instructor finishes an evaluation, they should be able to see the evaluation (it shouldn't just disappear.) Teachers would like to be able to go back and look at evaluations they've done. Second, people should be able to see their own evaluations in the evaluations tool. Chuck will write a JSP and link to the tool. The report will be downloadable as a spreadsheet. He was going to add this as a link from the evaluations tool.

Noah discussed the similarities to work done at Michigan that is in contrib, SAK-13476, which also addresses the problem of interactive reports. We extract information from learner forms and feedback forms attached to a Matrix. We added a summary screen to the Matrix Tool, with a sortable data grid and spreadsheet download link. This work could be contributed as a feature if it were generalized more. Sean: Why not use the data warehouse? Michigan is not running the DW/Reports Tool and needed interactive reports in CTools without adding those dependencies.
