===Results===
 
 
 
This successful project resulted in the contribution of the student in the review process of several issues (which can be seen in MDL-14639), [https://docs.moodle.org/en/Student_projects/Usability_issues/T5 proposing solutions] and implementing several ones that the community could use. She also performed some [https://docs.moodle.org/en/Student_projects/Usability_issues/T4#Usability_problems_found_when_talking_with_Moodle_users Usability Studies on the Gradebook] to understand better how to deal with future releases. She wrote a first a approach for a future [https://docs.moodle.org/en/Student_projects/Usability_issues/T7 Usability Guideline] for Moodle.
 
 
 
==XMLDB/SQLite==
 
 
 
This project is about adding SQLite to the Moodle database abstraction layer and adding a mechanism to copy a live Moodle database into a SQLite database to implement a mechanism to switch into 'testing mode' using a SQLite copy of the live database.

'''Tracker Issue''': MDL-15071
 
 
 
===Results===
 
 
 
This successful project resulted in code for SQLite support (attached to MDL-15071) and a database migration tool (MDL-15635). The code is now included in HEAD.
 
 
 
==Animated grade statistics report==
 
 
 
This project is about using the [http://flare.prefuse.org/ Flare library] to develop some cool and useful visualisation of information in the Moodle gradebook.

==Web 2.0 language editing interface==
 
 
 
Moodle is [[Translation|designed to be translated]] into many languages, and currently has over 70 language packs. The existing [[Language editing|language editing]] interface enables translators to check for untranslated words or phrases and also enables Moodle administrators to change words or phrases used in Moodle.
 
 
 
This project will involve creating a Web 2.0 language editing interface which will include features such as syntax error detection, a search and replace function for changing a particular word and a spell checker.
