Release Notes - Week Ending June 16th, 2017

(Note: for a technical list of fixes/enhancements, click here.)




Evaluation Assessments

Evaluation Assessments are now available for use in the LMS. Two new types of Assessments exist:

  • Admin Evaluation Assessments - these are available by default in the system. An Admin Evaluation Assessment allows an administrator to evaluate other user(s) in the system.
  • Peer Evaluation Assessments - you must request this feature be turned on for your account. Please contact your Account Strategist or submit a Help ticket. A Peer Evaluation Assessment allows a group of Students in the LMS (i.e., a cohort) to evaluate others in the group.

Accompanying these new Evaluation Assessments are two new question types: Checklist and Feedback Prompt. These new question types allow evaluation via assigning points or ranking on a point scale. To understand how the flow of this new functionality is set up and used, please consult the following job aids:

New “Enable Calendar Invites” column added to Bulk Activity Import

A new field has been added to the Bulk Activity Import to allow enabling/disabling of calendar invites for an Event activity:


This field, if set to ‘true,’ directly sets the “Calendar Invites” field in the Letter Properties for an Event activity, allowing students enrolled in sessions of the event to receive automated calendar invites via email.





“Launch Assessment” button was visible on Event enrollment prior to Student enrolling into Session

This bug manifested if the following conditions were met:

  • An Assessment was mapped to an Event


  • There were Sessions in the future defined for that Event
  • A Student was enrolled into the Event

Prior to the Student enrolling in a particular Session for the Event, if the Student accessed the enrollment page for the Event they would see the “Launch Assessment” button, which of course is premature since they hadn’t enrolled and participated in the Session yet:


We have fixed this issue so that the Launch Assessment button does not display in this particular scenario.


“Requires Authorization” field in Bulk Session Import will default nil values to “False”

Prior to this fix, if the “Requires Authorization” field (which indicates whether a Student enrolling in the Session requires administrator authorization) in the CSV file for a Session Integration was left blank (nil), the import would generate an error. We have corrected this problem so that if the “Requires Authorization” field is left blank in the CSV file, the value will default to “false.”


Restricted Admin lost access to reports they created but did not share

If a Restricted Admin didn’t share a report they created with another administrator, or they were changed to a Restricted Admin from an Unrestricted Admin role, they wouldn’t be able to view or edit any report they created (assuming their “Reports” and “Reports edit” permissions were set to allow them to do so).

This problem has been fixed so that if the permissions allow, a Restricted Admin can view and edit a report they’ve created.


Some Administrators not seeing all enrolled Sessions

We noticed a bug where some Administrators, when viewing the Session List for an Event, would not see all enrolled Sessions on the page. This has been fixed so that Administrators will now see all enrolled Sessions they have permission to see.


Improved security of crossdomain.xml file

Typically for a client account, we used to allow cross domain access (of which the crossdomain.xml file is used) regardless if AICC course files were being used. As part of a recent security review, we have improved the crossdomain.xml file so that if no AICC files are used, the crossdomain.xml file will be structured with strict rules to prevent cross domain access.

Note that we do have the ability to switch cross domain access on/off for those client accounts that require it for another purpose.
