Presentation   2019   September

September

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.

 

9.16.2019

What's new

We released some new features and upgrades this week:

  • The reports available to community moderators have been re-styled to display more uniform HTML and exported reports and column sorting.

Presentation Report Changes

What we fixed

These issues were fixed this past week:

  • There was an error for some administrators when attempting to filter the Portfolio Form report by academic term.
  • Some faculty members may have experienced an error when trying to access their course evaluations.
  • The Scoring Guide report was not properly pulling the students' external user IDs into the exported report.

What we're working on

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

  • Nothing close enough to mention.

9.9.2019

What's new

We released some new features and upgrades this week:

  • An update was made to the Scoring Guide report.  It will now allow grouping of data based on courses in Foliotek.  This option is available if Competency-Based Assessments and/or Course-Based Evaluations are being used.
  • We made some improvements to our LTI system.  Foliotek should now better handle students who view or work in an existing course after the academic term has changed.

What we fixed

These issues were fixed this past week:

  • We corrected an issue where some student logins were being counted twice in the database.  The login numbers on reports have been updated to reflect the actual number of student logins.
  • The Portfolio Form report was showing an error if administrators attempted to run the report without applying a date filter.
  • For administrators who were trying to create Portfolio-Integrated Evaluations, the header text would not reflect the current portfolio being used to create the evaluation.  The correct scoring guides were being shown and the evaluations were correctly created, the page header just showed the wrong portfolio.
  • Administrators who were adding students to courses may have received an error in that process.  Despite the error, the students were added to the course(s) correctly.

What we're working on

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

  • Nothing close enough to mention.

9.3.2019

What's new

We released some new features and upgrades this week:

  • The Content Template dropdown list used when creating a new Presentation portfolio was very slow.  This dropdown menu was optimized and now loads and opens much faster.

What we fixed

These issues were fixed this past week:

  • We corrected some visual errors on the Expired user page that is displayed when a user logs into Foliotek after their account has expired.
  • When editing a Presentation portfolio, if a user duplicated a page, the URL for any copies of the page was the same.  This made subsequent page copies invisible in the published version of the portfolio.
  • The Dynamic Configurable Report was broken.
  • Users who had files stored in folders in the Presentation Files area couldn't access those files.  The folders wouldn't open.
  • The option to download files in the Presentation Files area was not exporting the files.
  • The Student Activity report was taking a long time to load for institutions that had a large number of users in Foliotek.

What we're working on

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

  • Nothing to report right now.
