Moodle 2.0


This page provides information for Workshop module testers and lists found issues.

Testing the migration procedure

Requirements: being able to run the recent Moodle 1.9 and Moodle 2.0dev, preferable on a local machine, basic SQL database operations

Steps to test the migration

  1. install a fresh Moodle 1.9.x or use a COPY of your production site
  2. prepare a course with several students and at least one teacher
  3. create various workshop activities in the course. Try to use all grading strategies (No grading, Accumulative, Error banded, Criterion and Rubric) in a combination with other settings (like teacher's example submissions etc.)
  4. simulate the workshop run. Log in as students, submit their work, attach files, assess the peers, provide teacher assessments etc.
  5. dump (export) the SQL database and create a copy of it (it est create new empty database for Moodle 2.0 and import the dump into it)
  6. copy moodledata/ from 1.9 somewhere to be used by the 2.0 server
  7. install a recent Moodle 2.0dev using the copied database and moodledata
  8. check how the workshops look like after the migration

Known issues and expected behaviour

  • negative weights are not supported [1]
  • multiple student submissions are not supported [2]
  • dropped support for grade adjustment in grading forms - the grade is based on the form elements (dimensions) only
  • grading grade can't be calculated after the assessment of example submission [3]

Things to be fixed before Moodle 2.0 release

  • DONE setting the weight of assessment
  • DONE instant assess of the submission for teachers without the need to allocate manually first
  • TODO display the workshop results page when the workshop is closed, possibility to publish selected submissions

Testing workshop functionality

Requirements: being able to connect to the test site
