This sprint continued discussion of non-expeditions. This week we focused primarily on restructuring the prototype to correctly integrate subject areas that do not fall under the typical expedition. The home page was refined further and several changes were made to the math non-expedition subject area created for prototype 4.
Prototype 4 includes a lot of design changes stemming from our FSW and Winter Terms sprint. These changes include improvements to the homepage and accomodation for non-expedition placeholders for FSW, winter and subject areas. Other enhancements were made in the expedition forms and sub sections as well as proper differentiation between them and their non-expedition counterparts.
The purpose of this meeting was to finalize the data-entry sections of the system by further describing functionality specifically on non-expedition semesters. Non-expeditions were discussed both as FSW / Winter term as well as other subject areas or strands of the curriculum delivered in parallel to expeditions. The majority of this meeting focused on refining prototype 3 further by improving …
This meeting focused on prototype 3 and refining the structural breakdown of expeditions and their sub-components. New terminology was introduced to describe the various elements of semester based expeditions and non-expeditions and certain elements were re-positioned within the data-entry screens.
After presenting the second prototype at the last requirements meeting, it was apparent that more work needed to be done with defining what an expedition is and where its sub-sections correctly belong. Much of the discussion of the meeting concentrated on Standards, Learning Targets, Assessment (STAs) and their correct placement in the map.
