th1ahi replaceafill.21:45
replaceafillhey th1a21:46
th1aSee you made a few corrections for Fran... I have no idea what we'd have to estimate if she did come up with a set of reports like this again.21:46
replaceafillthe sad part is, reports still don't match her original formatting21:48
replaceafilli mean, i guess it's "ok" to have number bugs21:49
replaceafill(not desirable obviously)21:49
replaceafillbut that formatting... sigh21:49
th1anumber bugs?21:49
replaceafilllike, aggregate should be 8 lower scores from ALL grades, not just PASSED21:49
replaceafillthat's a bug related to calculations21:50
th1aI'm just not sure how we'd do this next time to make it smoother.21:51
th1aI mean, fewer at the same time, mostly, I guess.21:52
replaceafillin my opinion it's just plumbing in the report system that has to be done21:52
replaceafillif we even plan to support this kind of layout21:53
replaceafillgoing low-level through xlwt is not optimal at all21:53
replaceafillnot sure we'll get ever there, but that's my $0.0221:54
th1aDo you think we could do it with another format entirely.21:55
th1aI just don't want to think about trying to fit this stuff into page layout.21:55
replaceafillactually, i think xls is easier than, say, pdf21:57
th1aI don't know how I'd try to jam this stuff into a fixed width.21:57
th1aOK.  Anyhow, anything else?21:59
replaceafillno, that's it21:59
th1aOK.  I'm in tax mode.22:00
th1aOh, I need to follow up with Isaac.  Did you ever discuss with him exactly how he wants the student signup to work?22:01
th1aDo you know what he means about selecting quizzes?22:02
replaceafillit's really simple22:02
replaceafillpeople create their own account22:03
replaceafilland request automatically generated quizzes on specific topics22:03
replaceafill(quiz have questions that can be linked to cando skills)22:03
th1aDo you know enough to give him an estimate?22:04
replaceafilli guess...22:04
th1aDo we need an email confirmation for the account or anything like that?22:04
replaceafillwell, that was discussed as "advanced" features22:04
th1aAssuming he'll want to start with the simplest possible.22:05
replaceafilli think we should start with student signup22:06
replaceafillthat could be core22:06
