*** alga has quit IRC23:20
dwelshwelsh on phone with Paul23:24
dwelshMy big five issues, again:23:24
dwelsh1) permissions; 2) deletion23:24
dwelsh3) evaluations follow students from one section to another23:24
dwelshthat is, if a student already has evaluations for a given competency23:24
dwelshand that competency is in a new section23:25
dwelshthe evaluation for that competency will be pulled into the section23:25
dwelshpractical case...23:25
dwelshour students in TV are working on the same skillset for 2 or 3 years23:25
dwelshI don't want to have to reenter scores they've already earned23:25
dwelshwhen they move to a new section using the same competencies23:25
dwelshissue 4) import and export -- particularly of skillsets23:26
dwelshissue 5) making the "update links" button functions automatic (probably the easiest user story).23:26
dwelshAnyway, Paul is aware of these323:26
pcardune(jelkner, now i have gobby)23:26
dwelshI know Jeff that you want ever closer integration with school tool, zope 3, etc.23:27
dwelshShould be a busy time for Paul and Stephan in Boston :)23:27
jelknerpcardune: let's address dave's issues first, then talk about gobby23:27
dwelshI think we're pretty good on mine.23:29
dwelshPaul and I have talked about them already23:29
dwelshI'm mainly just keeping them on the radar screen.23:29
dwelshOnly other info I have to add is that th1a was on two weeks ago23:30
dwelshHe is working on streamlining permissions from his end23:30
pcarduneI think me and stephan are going to look at those issues in a broader sense so we can cover more ground23:30
dwelshHe wants to create preset roles (i.e. manager, trusted data entry person / clerk,23:30
dwelshteacher, student)23:30
dwelshMuch left permission setting will be left up to user.23:30
dwelshMuch less permission setting, I mean23:31
jelkneror is it s/less/left23:31
jelkneri can never get that straight23:31
dwelshjeff, you and I are one with Devis this Friday, 3:30pm23:32
