Description

Hi All,

At the last meeting we discussed the google doc and possibilities for updating/building out the reckoning plugin.
GDoc:https://docs.google.com/document/d/1oNxivPjB4wsbsILSMEt09TaY7jbuOActsXYYgx1jzbY/edit

Our conversation generated several possibilities to follow up on:

1. Categories: if the post was categorized, is it possible to pull that category into user summary overview page?

2. Can we build in an option to export the Reckoning data to CSV? We probably only need to export info from the user summary overview, not the second page with full length posts.

3. Explore potential for creating functional connection between WP Grade Comments and Reckoning. The most useful connection might be whether reckoning can pull the "grade" attached to each post and display in the user summary. This mechanism might exist in some form through WP Grade comments plugin already because when you view the post list in the dashboard, the grade is also displayed (Screenshot attached). Would it be possible to use that functionality in reckoning to have grades appear with the posts in the user summary?

Thanks, Laurie. I've opened separate tickets for 1 and 2, and will hijack this ticket for 3, which is integration with WP Grade Comments.

Can you spell out in more detail how you envision item 3 working? Perhaps you could share screenshots and make some suggestions about exactly what grade content would appear, and where.

Hi Boone,

Thanks for organizing the tickets.

The WP Grade plugins adds the "Grade" column (screenshot 3). I believe the comment bubble is standard wordpress but when you view the comments, you can see that there are private comments, and the grade column is added in the comments view, too.

I think the simplest integration would entail having (information generated by) this grade column appear in the reckoning user summary overview (screenshot 1) connected to the post on which the grade was posted. Similar to how the posts dashboard has several columns, I am suggestion the reckoning user summary overview also might have several columns, such as post title and date posted (current) plus post category (ticket #11939) and grade. I know in the post dashboard the columns are dynamic, but I don't think they need to be in reckoning beyond having a link to the post (current functionality).

If we could add more dynamic functionality to the reckoning user summary overview, I would suggest adding the comment bubble so that an admin could see how many comments were on the students post and easily navigate to their own feedback (or see that they missed a comment) from the reckoning overview screen.

What did I miss? Thoughts?

Got it - I think this is fine. Presumably we'd also put the data in the "Extended User Summary" interface, where it may not be represented by a column - the display is different there - but along the lines of whatever we do with categories. #11939

Can you provide more details about this idea? I get what you mean about showing a comment count (this would apply only to posts, of course) but I'm not sure about "easily navigate" - where would it go? To the comments section of the public post? And, just to be clear, this suggestion isn't really directly related to WP Grade Comments?

just to be clear, this suggestion isn't really directly related to WP Grade Comments?

Correct, since comments are standard wordpress, but it's related.

The comment bubble links to a dashboard page with all the comments on a particular post (screenshot). I was suggesting integrating this comment bubble into reckoning for each post. So along with the post name, post category (to be added), dated posted, and grade (to be integrated), you could also see the dynamic comment bubble and when clicked, be taken to the dashboard page of comments on post (screenshot).

If the comment bubble is integrated into reckoning, when viewing reckoning with post information, a prof could easily navigate to view all the comments on a particular post, including their own, which maybe be associated with the grade that is visible in reckoning.

Thanks, Laurie. This gives me some good context. Let me see how the rest of the 1.17 release goes - the comment bubble, while motivated by WP Grade Comments, is technically independent, and as such may be doable prior to full WP Grade Comments integration.
