th1ahi replaceafill.17:34
replaceafillhey th1a17:34
th1aHow are we coming?17:34
replaceafillfinished the enrollment/demo report17:34
replaceafilldidn't start the notes changes yet17:34
replaceafillmeeting with Isaac distracted me too much i guess17:35
replaceafillIsaac is satisfied with the quiz changes17:35
th1aOK, good!17:35
replaceafilljelkner was really impressed too17:35
replaceafill"that's what we've been dreaming since we started cando!"17:35
*** khildin has joined #schooltool17:36
th1aOf course, I remain ignorant of quiz...17:36
th1aWe're going to need to market it!17:36
replaceafillnah, it's still too jelkner specific imho17:36
replaceafillbut we'll see17:36
replaceafillso, only notes and the gradebook filter change remaining17:36
replaceafilli think i'll be able to have them ready for monday17:37
th1aOK.  Great.17:37
replaceafillthat's it from me i guess17:37
th1aCan we run down what I see as the parts of this VA thing?17:37
th1a1 instance for all schools.17:38
th1a"advisors" are the people connected to the study, they work at multiple schools.17:38
th1a"counselors" are regular per-school counselors.17:38
th1aThey seem to need the same permission though so I think they're all "advisors" to us.17:39
replaceafilladvisors don't have edit, right?17:39
replaceafilli mean17:39
replaceafillin current ST17:39
th1aI don't think so.17:39
th1aSo there is a little permissions tweaking but not new roles.17:40
th1aThe advisors and counselors need a new default view.17:40
th1aEssentially it is an index view for the people they advise, perhaps with a few dashboardy stats like % of advisees that have one of their demographic attributes completed.17:41
th1aI don't know if we can just calculate those practically on the fly.17:41
th1aotoh, it is probably not a MUST feature.17:42
replaceafillshouldn't be hard17:42
th1aOK -- not a performance issue?17:42
replaceafillwell, i think we need indexes in place for this17:43
th1aThey need to be able to find the kids they advise (only), and edit their personal info.17:47
th1aAnd they need to be able to add students that will automatically be added to the right groups, made their advisees, etc.17:48
replaceafillright groups?17:48
th1aProbably also an "unenroll" link.17:48
th1aWell, students.17:48
th1aWe might have a group for each school.17:48
th1aThis stuff can be a bit more hard-wired as well since it will just be on "our" server.17:49
th1aThe main thing is they'll be students and have the right advisor.17:49
replaceafillthey won't be using any other part of the system right?17:50
replaceafilljust "their view"17:51
th1aThe new index add and edit will have to have mobile friendly versions, which I think doesn't require much more than not having the header and sidebar.17:51
th1aOverall our default form layout is pretty mobile friendly.17:51
th1aIf that takes a little unbilled time (essentially) to get the basic infrastructure in place for the mobile view, it is fine with me.  It is something we'll need.17:52
replaceafilli think we could get away with some minor css tweaks17:53
th1aYeah, I mean, I don't think it is a lot anyhow.17:53
th1aThere will also be a XLS report which shouldn't be Fran-esque, since they want to actually analyze the data elsewhere.17:54
replaceafilljust dumping the raw data17:55
th1aMore or less.17:57
th1aNo formatting and colors.  ;-)17:57
th1aIt might be somewhat aggregated.17:57
th1aIn terms of individual data fields, see anything problematic.17:58
th1aIt doesn't seem like we need to store lists (e.g., of schools visited), which would be a complication.17:59
replaceafilli read that part17:59
replaceafilli think they're all basic demo fields, right?17:59
th1aSeems like it.18:00
th1aI mean, for their analysis they just need numbers.18:00
th1aTurning it into lists would just complicate it for the people doing the entry.18:00
th1aOh, someone will have to have a regular admin account to add advisors.18:01
th1aAnd I'll do as much of the basic setup myself on the instance as I can.18:01
th1ai.e., I can just set up the demographics manually.18:02
replaceafillah ok18:02
