ignasth1a: i got a couple of questions about the agreement for lyceum ...17:16
ignas"A database to track school-wide, standardized and external assessment data." - what exactly is this ? what is the standardized and external assessment data ?17:17
th1aSorry, that was a bit tricky to describe.17:18
th1aThat's simply if there are exams that occur outside the scope of a section or course.17:18
th1aIf the state requires an exam, for example.17:18
th1aThis may not be an issue for them.17:18
jfrochehello hello17:18
th1ajfroche: Hi.17:19
ignasth1a: so that means a way to track national exams and similar stuff17:19
th1aignas: It is a simple database.17:19
th1aignas: Yes.17:19
ignas"Calendaring/scheduling/resource management, based on the existing and SchoolTool Calendaring functionality."17:20
th1aYou could do it on a spreadsheet.17:20
th1a(tracking national exams, etc)17:20
ignaswell, i would like to see how are they doing that now17:20
th1aI guess there shouldn't be an "and" between existing and SchoolTool.17:21
ignasexisting "SchoolTool Calendaring" functionality - this term was not defined in the agreement, i don't think they know whole schoolbell -> schooltool calendaring story17:21
th1aWell, I suppose the reference to existing functionality could be struck.17:22
th1aIt is implied everywhere else that we're using SchoolTool; making it explicit in one particular place isn't really helpful.17:22
ignasbut why the distinction between existing and ST cal ?17:23
ignasi mean aren't these two the same ?17:23
th1aThat "and" is just a typo.17:24
ignasoh, i see17:24
th1aIt should be "existing SchoolTool functionality."17:24
ignasmakes it a lot clearer17:24
th1aSorry about that.17:24
ignasjfroche: th1a is yours now ;)17:25
jfrochethanks :)17:25

jfroche(i also copied with Denis few promotional pages they recieve from the society which has created the actual system)17:30
