th1ahi replaceafill.16:58
replaceafillhey th1a16:58
th1aLuckily the weather has cooled off enough for my second monitor to resume working.17:09
th1aIt konks out every summer.17:09
replaceafillit's rainy and cold here today :)17:10
th1aI think it is fine that you skipped the user side explanation of the Ark functionality since they have their own user docs.17:13
replaceafilli just explained a bit of the peas division calculation hell17:13
replaceafilltrying to say it's based on "rules"17:13
replaceafilli even googled some uganda doc to link17:14
replaceafillbut couldn't find any17:14
th1aYeah, that's their problem to explain.17:14
th1aI hope it isn't really necessary to list the reports -- that's the whole point of the reports index!17:18
th1aBut we should probably just say that these were all developed in an unfortunately ad hoc manner and thus are sensitive to any changes in the system.17:20
th1aI'm not sure what you're getting at here: Explain the reason for behaviour “notes” and that they’re person based.17:21
replaceafillwell, i just thought of explaining what Behaviour tracks17:22
replaceafillit's for good or bad things done by the students17:22
replaceafilland that they're implemented on each student17:23
replaceafillyou can just delete the line i guess17:23
th1aIt seems sort of self-explanatory.17:23
th1aOK, now I am trying to remember what an Assessment set is...17:25
replaceafilla group of sheets17:25
replaceafillthat you can "relate" to a course17:25
replaceafillso the course sections get the sheets17:25
th1aTeachers create the activities and the sheet reports the average?17:26
replaceafillsections get just regular worksheets17:26
replaceafillbut then you can look at the assessment set and know what to look in the section worksheets17:26
replaceafillit's the same principle of report sheets17:26
replaceafillwith the deployed attribute by term17:27
th1aOK, but the idea is it just collects an average instead of a getting the scores on a specific set of activities like in a report sheet.17:28
th1aReally, I'm just trying to remember.17:29
replaceafillthe sheets in the assessment set also have weight (points)17:29
replaceafillto be considered in the average17:29
replaceafilloh i already mentioned that :)17:30
th1aIn terms of overall history,17:30
replaceafillbasically i wanted to make some reference to for example, why PEAS assessment is different17:31
replaceafillbecause it was developed first17:31
replaceafillit's more "limited" because of it17:31
replaceafillISLI doesn't have any custom code, except for demographics17:31
replaceafillbecause it's the last one17:31
th1aAll right, I can clean up these yellow bits.  Do you have anything else to add at the end about ISLI?17:34
replaceafillall of its functionality comes from the "shared" package17:35
replaceafillsince we're just mentioning what's specific to each of them, i didn't think of adding anything17:35
th1aOK, I just wasn't sure.17:36
th1aSo I can fix these yellow bits, look over everything else one more time, move it to Sphinx, create the new index and publish?17:36
th1aOK.  I'll do that.17:39
replaceafillok, i'll be here, will try to get going with reports...17:40
replaceafilldeath march...17:40
replaceafillpoor kid, complains about getting paid for writing computer code...17:40
th1aThanks replaceafill.17:45
replaceafillthanks th1a17:45
th1aI'll be around Monday, even though it is Labor Day.  Have a good weekend.17:45
replaceafillthanks you too17:45

th1areplaceafill:  Is devmode still useful?20:30
replaceafillhhm i don't use it20:30
th1aI'll take that as a "no."20:30
replaceafillit's probably outdated20:30
replaceafilldo you want to know what you get in devmod?20:31
replaceafilli can look that up20:31
replaceafillark projects definitely don't use it20:31
th1aNo, I just canned it.20:59
th1aI don't know that it did anything post-Flourish.20:59
th1aIt was a neat idea 10 years ago.20:59
th1areplaceafill:  Just to be clear, don't make any changes to the docs until further notice -- then we'll edit them from bzr as usual.21:04
replaceafillth1a, kk21:04
th1aYou might want to change the order, but that's really easy by just changing the table of contents.21:07
*** robb_nl has joined #schooltool21:09
th1areplaceafill:  I assume you didn't text nginx configuration.21:24
replaceafillth1a, yes i did21:26
replaceafilli updated it, right?21:26
th1aOK.  That link to grok didn't work though.21:26
th1aMaybe I didn't pull it?21:26
th1aGot it.21:27
th1aRevision control!21:28
th1aI almost got the ReSTructured Text link syntax right the first time.21:28
*** robb_nl has quit IRC21:39
th1areplaceafill:  Is the second sentence here correct?21:46
th1aThe student has temporal relationships with each level indicating beginning and completing the level.  These are not mutually exclusive, so you could continue adding a student to new levels without removing him or her from the previous one.21:46
replaceafillth1a, yes21:47
th1areplaceafill: Streams is still TODO.21:48
replaceafillremove it for now21:49
replaceafilli'll add it through bzr21:49
th1aI just totally fucked up.21:57
th1aFUCK FUCK.21:59
th1aremind me not to accidentally bzr remove source if I haven't committed any changes.22:02
replaceafillth1a, ouch22:04
th1aAnd then follow it up with enough random commands to completely bury any easy recovery.22:04
* replaceafill goes to get lunch22:15
th1areplaceafill:  Google Docs inserted some faulty ' in your code.23:36
th1areplaceafill:  Pushed some files to the schooltool-homepage repo.23:56
th1aUI Guideline stuff.23:56
