Blocks: Exabis Student Review

block_exastud
Maintained by Picture of andreas riepl 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 (acknowledging all new features of the moodle gradebook) is that teachers do not always have time during the year to give solid feedback to the students but seek a simple way to do this periodically – for example at the end of each school-semester. The feedback can be seen as an additional information that is given to the students where students are assessed by a teacher-team. In case exabis competencies block is also installed, assessment-categories can be made available from there. Students can print out their review at any time in the pdf-format.
Moodle 2.0, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5

    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

    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.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi Andreas
    I wanted to try this block out on my test server (moodle 2.5.3) but it locked up my site on install (stuck at "site is being upgraded". When I removed the files and waited, the site recovered after a few minutes and showed the block as installed but with files missing from disk. I was able to replace the files and get to settings for the block, when I got the message: "Exabis Competencies This block still uses an old-style config_global.html file. It must be updated by a developer to use a settings.php file."
