th1aHi replaceafill.17:31
replaceafillhey th1a17:31
th1aSo, regarding Fran's assessment needs.17:32
th1aIt seems to me that we just have to make an "assessment templates" system,17:32
th1awhich allows you to define multiple versions of what the assessment sheets system does in Peas.17:33
th1aWould that be a kludge on top of a kludge on top of a kludge?17:33
replaceafilli guess i was thinking something along those lines17:34
th1aI don't see any alternative.17:35
th1aIt is going to be kind of annoying for the schools.17:35
replaceafillun-hard code the sheet attributes of peas17:35
th1aBut... if you want that mix of standardization and customization, it requires some work on the part of the school.17:35
replaceafilli'm not sure that'll take just one week though17:36
replaceafilla lot of moving parts17:36
replaceafillincluding the reports17:36
th1aYeah, I know.17:36
th1aOK, I mean, it is what it is.17:37
th1aCustomizability is a lot more expensive than customization.17:37
th1aI guess you saw your report fix actually worked?  ;-)17:39
th1aWe gain a couple karma points on that one.17:39
th1aAny thoughts about the new issue she brings up?17:41
replaceafillnot yet17:41
replaceafillneed to look at the code17:41
replaceafilli think it's about terms17:42
replaceafillthe second report is running 2nd term data17:42
replaceafillthat's why the attendance rate is different17:42
replaceafillbased on the date the report was produced17:42
replaceafillmay 21th17:42
replaceafill21st :)17:42
th1aI kind of suspect it is something like that (just from past experience).17:43
replaceafillif the schools are using the same dates as the demo17:43
replaceafilli think that's the issue17:44
replaceafillthe 75% report asks you for a term17:44
replaceafillin the request view17:44
replaceafillif they select Term 2 when they generate the report, they should have the same numbers as the 2 weeks report17:44
replaceafillthe 2 weeks report uses *today* as the base17:45
replaceafillfor calculating term and past 10 days17:45
th1aLet's talk fees for just a minute.17:46
th1aThe student attendance gives you a grid of all students that you can filter various ways, right?17:46
th1aSo probably that's the basis for the fees view.17:48
th1aI mean, same kind of system.17:48
th1ajust a sec.17:48
replaceafillimho the grid is not a big deal17:48
* replaceafill goes to prepare coffee, bb in ~2 mins17:49
*** khildin has joined #schooltool17:52
