Presentation   2017   February

February

At Foliotek, we work hard to provide the best assessment and portfolio software possible.  To do that, we make changes every week.  Sometimes we fix things that don't work, other times we release new features to improve your experience.  Below you will find a description of the changes we have made this month.

 

 

2.27.2017

What's new

We released some new features and upgrades this week:

  • We made some improvements to the way forms and evaluations work.  You shouldn't notice a difference in them, just rest assured they work more efficiently than before.

What we fixed

These issues were fixed this past week:

  • For Assessment Plus users, the Presentation menu at the top of the screen was taking the user to the dashboard, no matter which option they actually selected.

Presentation Menu

  • Some users were experiencing long load times when attempting to preview scoring guides.
  • For the Evaluation report, attemtping to download the data for the 'Records' tab to PDF or Word was broken.
  • The Dynamic Configurable Report was inadvertently displaying some elements of portfolios that had been removed.
  • When creating an ePortfolio, the Content Template dropdown was not starting at the top of the list.
  • If a user tried to add a large video file that took a long time to upload, the system was cutting it off after just a couple minutes and not completing the upload process.
  • The Splat and Grid Gizmos in ePortfolios were not displaying the images that had been selected if a user went back to edit them.  As a result, the user could not rearrange the images and had to re-add them instead.

What we're working on

Watch for these items to be released in the next few weeks:

  • Almost done! With this new feature, organizations will be able to award achievements to students.  Administrators will create and define the achievement badges and decide how the system will award them to students...automatically.

What's new

We released some new features and upgrades this week:

These issues were fixed this past week:

  • For forms that had multiple pages, the page numbers weren't starting with 1.
  • We improved the evaluation scoring system and made it a little faster.
  • The Faculty Activity report was mislabeling the first column of the Excel version of the report.
  • The highlights used to indicate to a student which profile fields need to be updated when a Profile Field Update was forced on their account were not being shown.
  • Some institutions were unable to run a Student Checkpoint report.
  • We optimized forms that contained a lot of questions.  They now save and open faster.
  • For a short time, emails for private ePortfolio shares were not being sent.  This was corrected and all failed emails were sent.

What we're working on

Watch for these items to be released in the next few weeks:

  • Nothing really close right now.
