## Blocks: Exabis Student Review

block_exastud
Maintained by andreas riepl
The main focus of this block is a verbose periodical review of students by a teacher-team. The basic idea of this module is that trainers can team-assess students - the assessment can be done on a 1-10 scale with the cagetories teamplayer, responsibility, self-reliance.

Moodle 2.0, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5, 2.6, 2.7

In case exabis competencies block is also installed, additional assessment-categories can be made available from there. Students can access their review from their competency-profile (being part of exabis competencies) otherwise it can only be printed out by the trainer that started the assessement.

A new feature of the block is that it can be used to "rate" projects as well.

FYI, during the plugin review In Moodle 2.4 I noticed the following: The block exastud does not define the standard capability block/exastud:addinstance Peace - Anthony

One more thing I discovered, "This block still uses an old-style config_global.html file. It must be updated by a developer to use a settings.php file" please make that fix so the block is 2.x compatible. Peace - Anthony

fyi - the recommended (but not required) repository name would be moodle-block_exastud

I've gone ahead and approved the plugin. When you have a moment, it would be helpful to provide a tracker url to the Useful links section. Even if there is no dependency, we can still create a set of plugins that are best installed together (for example exaport). Peace - Anthony

Andreas - Thanks for cleaning up the README.txt. I see that you added the addinstance capability. The copyright holder still seems to be a bunch of initial and is not really clear but I will leave that up to you. It does not appear that there are any settings so it looks like your removed the config_global.html file which is fine. One small thing I noticed while installing and poking around was:

Invalid get_string() identifier: 'commentshouldnotbeempty' or component 'block_exaport'. Perhaps you are missing $string['commentshouldnotbeempty'] = ''; in /m24/blocks/exaport/lang/en/block_exaport.php? The code you have in the picture_upload_form.php file is: get_string("commentshouldnotbeempty", "block_exaport") I'm not sure what the reference to block_exaport is - is that a separate block? If so, it is not listed as a dependency in the version.php. Otherwise, the string is missing in the lang file. In any case, this is a smaller issues and not likely to hold up approving the block. If the block does have dependencies then we should probably create a set. Peace - Anthony • Sun, May 19, 2013, 3:39 AM Hi Andreas, I was translating the Exabis Student Review plugin in AMOS and I noticed a strange-looking English language string: 2.5 [errorstarttimebeforeendtime,block_exastud] Period {$a->description} has its starttime before its endtime!

Maybe I am wrong, but the start_time must always be before the end_time, and the error is just the opposite.

Or could it be that this plugin checks from (let's say, today=start_time) to a given moment in the past (end_time) ?

Could you please check this, as I am not a native English speaker.
