Since the last sprint, the first iteration of the actual application was developed using ASP.NET MVC 5 and SQL Server backend database. This application is being used for the upcoming remote usability testing sessions.
Data Elements Review and Reporting
Today a short meeting was held to discuss the overall progress of the prototype to date and demonstrate the key functionality to the EL representative for the school.

The group is going to review the prototype over the next week further and share feedback at our next meeting.
Non-Expedition Subject Areas
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.

This was the first requirements meeting since the initial kickoff back in April. Prototype 2 served as the main discussion for this meeting as we dove deeper into the expected functionality and nuances of an EL curriculum map.
