Basic References

Intro and Organization

This is aimed to be a (more or less complete) review of the new Question Engine for Moodle 2.1, trying to analyze (the huge) Tim's work under different perspectives (coding, DB structures, security...) in some separated iterations.

The list below shows each one of steps to follow in order to complete the review process. Note that Q&A rounds can happen at any stage.

  1. Read all the Docs
  2. Read the MDL
  3. Create Oracle DB for that (stronk7_qereview) (yes, it's the best testing env, there is some serious rationale about that)
  4. Look @ DB structures and installation.
  5. Review QE2 itself, understand tests
  6. Look for DB uses
  7. Look for Quiz changes related to QE2 support
  8. Review all requests, security, caps, user-introduced info specially.
  9. Upgrade (both quiz and engine)
  10. Backup & Restore (specially BC).
  11. Functional tests
