LightSwitch – Common Core Teacher Evaluations

lsWires-1.0.6-Tiles

Here we’ll show you, via video, an application we’ve written to support the Common Core Standards for Education.  Its an evaluation system that in its current form is about teachers.  But we’ve made it so that with just a bit of terminology change, it can morph into an evaluation system for most anything.  Living or not!

  • Based on TNTP.org simplified rubric
  • Multi-tenant
  • Drag and Drop sorting
  • Tile based menus
  • Role based
  • Analytics with pretty graphs
  • Supports desktops down to smart phones!

Check it out on our tutorial site… TES

You can also see the video and more up on our YouTube Channel.

lsWireCore Project Updated v1.0.6

lsWireCore

Updated to lsWires.js v1.0.6

Added Database Project to pre-seed the tiles
Just need to edit the tiles in the browser to add the icons

Added lsWiresExtras folder with the security tile icons
Highly recommend Syncfusions Metro Studio for additional icons.

Updated the CopySolution.ps1 script

Fixed Visual Studio from changing IIS ports on rebuilds

This should be the project that you use our CopySolution on

We’ve moved the repo to https://bitbucket.org/interbay/lsWireCore

Don’t hesitate to holler if something breaks!

Well it broke… Arrrgggg!!  Hopefully easy work around… just do a full rebuild after you download.

lsWires.js Updated – 1.0.6

Good day folks,

lsWires.js has been updated, 1.0.6
lsWires.js now embeds its dependencies
lsWires.js repository has moved:  http://bitbucket.org/interbay/lswires
lsWires.js 1.0.6 will most likely break things
lsWires.js documentation will be updated shortly
lsWires.js samples will be converted and moved over to Bitbucket

We’ve also added a new database project that will pre-seed the tiles for managing security.
Have added a folder lsWiresExtras that includes a few icons for the tiles
Updated the CopySolution script, but the better solution to copy is the lsWireCore project due to a naming issue.

We’ve done some pretty significant changes under the covers and we appreciate the patience.  One of the big ones is incorporating “signals” for hooking into the jQuery Mobile Page events.  We’re also providing a much simpler, yet more powerful, tile based menu system.  I think you’ll appreciate its simplicity.  For example:

lsWires-1.0.6-Tiles

We’ll also be posting a new “real application” video that will showcase what you can do with the new 1.0.6.  Which is what the image above is from.  I think you’ll be pleased with what you see and how you can bring excitement to your LOB apps!

Stay tuned!
