Project Overview

Most of the activities are provided a dataset in JSON(mostly) format, which contains data about the various parameters of an activity separated in various levels that determine the functioning of the activity. Adding multiple datasets to an activity means adding multiple data files each containing different sets of levels, and providing user the functionality to switch to any datasets that he wishes to use.

For an activity in Gcompris the difficulty of an activity even in the first level might be too much for children of certain age groups. On the other hand some activities might prove to be too easy for children of other age groups. So multiple datasets help in adding granularity in the levels of an activity, so that the user can choose a dataset as per his need or he might even want to begin with an easier dataset and then make his way to the top.

Milestones Achieved

Adding Multiple datasets to Money Activity

Money Activity is used to teach students various aspects of Money exchange, such as selecting exact amount of money to purchase an item or returning the change left after a purchase. Multiple datasets create an hierarchy in the amount of money spent or given back in the activity. Money has the following subactivities:

  • Money
  • Money with Cents
  • Money Back
  • Money Back with cents

Currently multiple datasets have been implemented for all the subactivities. The link to diff is here https://phabricator.kde.org/D21841

Adding Multiple datasets to Small Numbers Activity

Small numbers activity is used to teach students how to count the number of items in a falling object. Multiple datasets here add a hierarchy to the number of items in the falling object. The two sub activities are as follows:

  • smallnumbers
  • smallnumbers2

Currently multiple datasets have been implemented for all the sub activities. The link to diff is here https://phabricator.kde.org/D21841

Adding Multiple datasets to Magician Hat Activity

Magician's hat activity teaches students adding and subtracting a given set of stars to others. Multiple datasets add hierarchy to the Number of stars in a level. The sub activities are:

  • magic-hat-plus
  • magic-hat-minus

Currently multiple datasets have been implemented for all the subactivities. The link to diff is here https://phabricator.kde.org/D21893

Milestones Under Review

Adding Multiple datasets to Calendar Activity

Calendar activity is used to teach the students about various aspects of a calendar by asking them various questions which require them to use the calendar to answer. Multiple datasets are used to add hierarchy to the number of days to which the questions span, example 1 month, 2 months or several months. Calendar has the following sub activities:

  • Calendar
  • Find the date

Current progress can be found here https://phabricator.kde.org/D22266

Adding Multiple datasets to Number in Order Activity

Number in order activity is used to teach the students to count numbers in a particular order, such as increasing order or even numbers or odd numbers etc. Multiple datasets are used to add hierarchy to the length of the number list to count. The sub activities are:

  • planegame
  • numbers-odd-even

Current progress can be found here https://phabricator.kde.org/D22548

Adding Multiple datasets to target Activity

Target activity is used to teach students to add numbers which are targeted by our dart throw. Multiple datasets are used to add hierarchy to the values on various targets. Current progress can be found here https://phabricator.kde.org/D23115
