Forum .LRN Q&A: Re: Request for Comment: Implementing Profiles in .LRN
Would grades and evaluations be subject to integration into a "Student Profile"?
Can someone give me an update/timeline on Complex Survey?
I read about features that I thought would correspond to these from dotLRN documentation but they were quite general and I didn't quite find an example of how this functionality is used in practise.
Other then that I think some people are working on adding grading functionality to the survey module (though I'd prefer it to be seperate, so you can grade files as well). I think the idea is to add it to the curriculum module as well. And last but not least we have a testing module running for one of our clients, which probably needs some cleanup before beeing useful and only supports something like "passed" and "not passed".
But I would refrain from storing this information with the user profiles as talked about here, because we'd have more grades per user and role. It would be different if every class used it's own user profile (which you can think about), but I'd say keeping it seperate is a better way. And makes it easier to intergrate with SCORM (at least the way I envision handling the user profiles ).
Grades and evaluations would not be part of the student profile as it is intended here. It's definite worth doing and thinking about. Terminologically, I would make that part of a student's "Portfolio".
