+
* DISCUSS: define our terminology, e.g. is it grade or box, answer or solution, correct or right, incorrect or wrong etc.
  
* TODO: remove statistics that don't make sense any more from the TestEntryManager (like "skip known")

*** If a hint message has been used (may change policy here later if it doesn't work out)
* words that were incorrectly answered will come up again until they are answered correctly (or the practice is stopped)

*** If an accent and/or capitalisation mistake was made (might be accepted as right if the option is chosen in the config)
 
+
** If answer stays the same after enter is pressed a second time assume the user doesn't know the answer and continue.

+
** Just print a different message if the user corrected himself and the answer was right
 
+
** words that were incorrectly answered will come up again until they are answered correctly (or the practice is stopped)
When answering in written mode, the user gets a chance to correct herself if the first answer was not right. She can edit the answer immediately after pressing enter again. If no changes were made, we assume the user doesn't know the answer and show the "wrong answer, continue" state. If on the other hand the answer is changed into the right answer, we still count it as wrong.
+
** DISCUSS: when a word is answered after being answered wrong before, it ends up on level 2, if the practice is stopped before, it stays in level 1 (Leitner says it stays in 1 ?)
The feedback text reads something like "Your answer was right, but you needed more than one attempt to get there.".
+
* URGENT: make sure that grading is implemented correctly in every practice mode and respects the "3 correct answers" setting
 
+
* DISCUSS: If you answer an unknown word wrong or right doesn't matter as by definition above wrong words get set to level 1 (from 0) and right words get increased to 1 (from 0). I changed that correct new words end up in level 2 ? (BEN_SCHL)
 
+
* DISCUSS: what happens when practicing with multiple modes? does only the last mode affect the grading? make in configurable? (DOES THIS STILL APPLY?)
A word is wrong when
 
* the user enters anything but the right answer in the first attempt (first pressing enter is all that counts)
 
* hint means it's wrong (may change policy here later if it doesn't work out)
 
* accent and capitalisation might be accepted as right if the option is chosen in the config

== Usability session with Leinir ==

Dan, Lydia, Daniel and Frederik sat down in Randa and these are some notes on usability.
 +
 +
 +
Comments from Lydia:
 +
=== Start Practice ===
 +
* table is big and in your face, but maybe that is ok
 +
* check boxes should be tri-state - parent lessons should be half-checked if only some of their children are selected
 +
* only show the relevant column with grades instead of all of them
 +
* do not offer to start practices that contain 0 words! it's borked!
 +
** kind of fixed by daniel - now it shows a message box, but it's not the end of the world any more
 +
 +
=== Practice ===
 +
* flash cards: change continue button to "show backside"
 +
* pic placeholder is ugly in default theme
 +
* progressbar should maybe start counting at 1
 +
* label: "I did not know it" "I know it" -- or "Did you know the answer?": "yes" - "no"
 +
* mixed letters are getting grey on grey -> generally font color is problematic
 +
* Multiple choice needs shortcuts (key 1-5 for example) and continue button should be disabled until a choice is selected.
 +
 +
* conjugation mode: "Enter all conjugation forms" is a silly string and should be removed.
 +
 +
=== Document Properties ===
 +
* categories: test preparation makes no sense as category
 +
* tooltip for checkboxes
 +
 +
Comments from Dan:
 +
* create video tutorials
 +
 +
=== Start Screen ===
 +
* title could be "Parley - Vocabulary Trainer" use kqtitlewidget
 +
 +
=== Start Practice ===
 +
*indent tenses below radio buttons
 +
* always show tenses (both Daniel and Frederik are against this)
 +
* remove status bar
 +
* remove tree indicator from tense selection
 +
*enable practice checkbox by default in file dialog (depending on current component)
 +
* remove "Editor" from toolbar, make sure it is in the menu though

Parley Practice Rewrite for KDE 4.5

General

  • TODO: does Paraphrase make any sense at all? yes, we got a bug and it should return!
  • TODO: remove Antonym completely
  • TODO: add grammar grade visualisation in the practice setup
  • TODO: show comments during practice

Keyboard focus issues

  • URGENT: make sure keyboard focus is set to the central widget in written mode after starting the practice
  • URGENT: make sure keyboard focus is set to the continue button in flash card mode after starting the practice
  • URGENT: mixed letter, example sentence: make sure it also works after fixing written mode
  • URGENT: multiple choice: set focus to the first radio button everytime
  • URGENT: gender of nouns: make sure it also works after fixing multiple choice

Synonyms

  • TODO: get rid of current way of handling them in the lib? BIC!!!???!!!
  • TODO: use a stringlist instead
  • TODO: make it possible to edit them in the table - how to separate two of them? semicolon?
  • TODO: change/rewrite dock widget
  • DISCUSS: practice options (is this really really needed?):
  • DONE: Check synonyms as part of written practice (BEN_SCHL)
    • DONE: accept any synonym as correct (BEN_SCHL)
    • DONE: ask to enter all synonyms (BEN_SCHL)
    • DONE: show already entered synonyms in list (BEN_SCHL)
    • DONE: ask until the exact word that is wanted is there, but don't count other synonyms as wrong on the way there (BEN_SCHL)
    • DONE: Check user options if he really wanted synonyms to be counted as correct by now we always accept them as correct (BEN_SCHL)
    • Let other modes benefit from synonyms. Maybe similar to the hint button show a synonym if it exist?
    • DONE: If in written mode a synonym was entered, check if that synonym is in this practice mode and increase its good count ? (BEN_SCHL)

LaTeX support

  • TODO: create LatexLabel which behaves like a label and detects and renders latex automatically
  • TODO: polish and test
  • TODO add documentation to manual

Configure Practice

  • TODO: Reimplement Time limits: only let the user select if the time limit is active, use show solution after answering

Completely Missing

Still missing are:

  • TODO: Vocabulary test (school like) with good summary and "grade"
    • no button for hints
    • add buttons to "go back and forth"
    • don't show if the answer was right
    • DISCUSS: do we want to have some type of "grade" and if yes, how should it be calculated?


Comparison Forms

You know? Adjectives and adverbs - words that describe other words.

  • green/red for right answers make right answers disabled so they can't be screwed up again
  • URGENT show solution if wrong
  • URGENT do not randomly skip words when answer was wrong
  • URGENT: the summary table at the end is completely broken
  • URGENT: are the grades displayed correctly?

Flash Card

  • URGENT: add sound and pronunciation, same as in written mode, only needs code in flashcardmodewidget.cpp to be changed

Multiple Choice

  • DONE dani_l: hotkeys (maybe in menu? even configurable??) for the choices: 1 for first, 2 for second...
    • TODO - KDE 4.6: use kactions and make sure they are configurable
  • DONE: it would be nice to get rid of the radio buttons in favor of having something else maybe - a list? something that looks nicer
  • Adding sound pronunciation and comment would be nice here too

Written

  • There is a class like this, "answervalidator.cpp" but it's ugly old and eats kittens. Cleaning it up would be ok. Things like word similarity are in there.
    • Moved some of the code to the new WrittenPracticeValidator class maybe move more funtionality there ?
  • how far do we want to go when comparing answers? what feedback should the user get?
    • you made a spelling mistake (this can be done by running spellcheckers and comparing what they suggest for a word with the solution)
    • you wrote nonsense

Conjugation

  • (optionally?) disable questioning of conjug forms that are blocked (individual forms)
  • also ask the infinitive
  • URGENT: result table after summary is completely broken
  • URGENT: are the grades displayed correctly?

Comparison Forms

  • implement blocking

Articles/Gender of Noun

  • implement blocking

Declensions

  • research what froms make sense...
    • plurals
    • cases
    • gender
    •  ???
  • there is a dock widget started for this somewhere
  • write the entire practice mode from scratch

All Practice Modes

  • DISCUSS: define our terminology, e.g. is it grade or box, answer or solution, correct or right, incorrect or wrong etc.
  • TODO: implement support for showing pronunciation for every practice frontend
  • TODO: implement support for sound for every practice frontend
  • URGENT: implement the "enable hints" option
  • URGENT: implement the "enable sound" option to make the sound autoplay
  • TODO KDE 4.6: sound - rename "enable sound" to "autoplay sound" and implement it

Grades

Grades are equivalent to boxes (leitner), they are:

  • 0 not practiced
  • 1 lowest level
  • ...
  • 7 best level
  • Words are answered correctly:
    • a correct answer gives grade += 1
    • a word that has been answered correctly is not asked again
  • Words are answered wrong:
    • a wrong answer gives grade = 1 (reset to lowest level). Wrong anserws are:
      • If a hint message has been used (may change policy here later if it doesn't work out)
      • If an accent and/or capitalisation mistake was made (might be accepted as right if the option is chosen in the config)
    • If answer stays the same after enter is pressed a second time assume the user doesn't know the answer and continue.
    • Just print a different message if the user corrected himself and the answer was right
    • words that were incorrectly answered will come up again until they are answered correctly (or the practice is stopped)
    • DISCUSS: when a word is answered after being answered wrong before, it ends up on level 2, if the practice is stopped before, it stays in level 1 (Leitner says it stays in 1 ?)
  • URGENT: make sure that grading is implemented correctly in every practice mode and respects the "3 correct answers" setting
  • DISCUSS: If you answer an unknown word wrong or right doesn't matter as by definition above wrong words get set to level 1 (from 0) and right words get increased to 1 (from 0). I changed that correct new words end up in level 2 ? (BEN_SCHL)
  • DISCUSS: what happens when practicing with multiple modes? does only the last mode affect the grading? make in configurable? (DOES THIS STILL APPLY?)
  • DISCUSS: find out if restricting the grading for each mode makes sense (e.g. saying "if i practice in multiple choice, the word can only rise up to grade 3")
    • TODO: figure out a sane way to configure this or give different grades for each practice mode ?
  • TODO: pass in 3 int from backend to frontend: current, good, bad (so that the selection of right/wrong can be previewed correctly)
    • note: basically it is already implemented, but in a quick and in some (most?) cases wrong way. we probably need some TestEntry::gradeIfWrong() etc or something like that

Summary Page (after practice is finished)

  • TODO for some practice modes the result is complete nonsense - eg conjugations show the normal words in the summary
  • TODO fregl: add a button to print a list with $number words you should practice

General (not practice related)

  • STILL VALID?: New rows are appended when pressing enter in the row above the last one, not in the last one - Qt 4.6 regression?
  • TODO: changes in dock widgets are not reflected in table -> model needs to emit dataChanged for the view to update (not working since the editing happens without models knowledge)
  • TODO: table: add column for grades (including combo box for changing the grade)
  • TODO: summary dock widget: make word type work
    • setting works
    • instead of the normal model use a flat list model (proxy would work)
  • TODO: remove leitner box classes
  • TODO: get rid of old kDebug() messages that don't make sense out of context
  • TODO: check if the column visibility is saved correctly in all cases
  • TODO fregl: there is a broken version of the 5 language document in the files on edu.kde.org (and there should be a *version with and without* images which you can clearly separate from each other, right?)
  • Settings
    • TODO: the languages that will be practiced should be per document, not global
    • TODO: other practice options should probably be per document as well
  • TODO: implement undo support
  • TODO: frederik be ashamed! Danish document -> 4000 words to sublessons a 20 doesn't work
  • TODO: creating a new document: title is not carried over for root lesson and window title
  • big todo: configurable special chars per language - come with language definition - configurable hotkey ...
  • I also found a bug, when deselecting the main lesson, it resets the title to "0". When clicking it again (to select all sublessons), it renames itself to "2".

Word types

  • TODO do not show word types in the table when clicking them (maybe on right click menu?)

Profiles and config and zip

  • DISCUSS: Instead of using current kvtml files, use the same with compression
  • add images, sound and other media into the zip file


Regressions in trunk

  • TODO fregl: Auto-save in practice mode

libkdeedu

(Frederik does all of this unless someone else wants to punish himself)

  • Comparison forms: use keduvoctext for forms (make grades possible)
  • make grades for articles possible

Stuff to discuss today

  • artwork
    • what/how/format
    • who
    • write request with lots of screenshots?
  • correct/wrong states, it it ok how they are currently implemented (especially in written mode)
    • great, but: longer ? in written (see above)
  • what grammar modes do we need and how can they be implemented
    • can we reuse/extend our frontend/backend modes?
  • grading for grammar training
  • create example document(s) making use of all our advanced features for testing
    • grammar training
    • multiple choice options
    • two images per entry, pronunciation, sound
    • ...
  • blockers before merging the branch back to trunk
  • timeline for merging, release schedule
  • synonym/antonym: what to keep? what about semicolons?

Usability session with Leinir

Dan, Lydia, Daniel and Frederik sat down in Randa and these are some notes on usability.


Comments from Lydia:

Start Practice

  • table is big and in your face, but maybe that is ok
  • check boxes should be tri-state - parent lessons should be half-checked if only some of their children are selected
  • only show the relevant column with grades instead of all of them
  • do not offer to start practices that contain 0 words! it's borked!
    • kind of fixed by daniel - now it shows a message box, but it's not the end of the world any more

Practice

  • flash cards: change continue button to "show backside"
  • pic placeholder is ugly in default theme
  • progressbar should maybe start counting at 1
  • label: "I did not know it" "I know it" -- or "Did you know the answer?": "yes" - "no"
  • mixed letters are getting grey on grey -> generally font color is problematic
  • Multiple choice needs shortcuts (key 1-5 for example) and continue button should be disabled until a choice is selected.
  • conjugation mode: "Enter all conjugation forms" is a silly string and should be removed.

Document Properties

  • categories: test preparation makes no sense as category
  • tooltip for checkboxes

Comments from Dan:

  • create video tutorials

Start Screen

  • title could be "Parley - Vocabulary Trainer" use kqtitlewidget

Start Practice

  • indent tenses below radio buttons
  • always show tenses (both Daniel and Frederik are against this)
  • remove status bar
  • remove tree indicator from tense selection
  • enable practice checkbox by default in file dialog (depending on current component)
  • remove "Editor" from toolbar, make sure it is in the menu though
