Support for bulk scoring and grading

Project description

PyPI Travis Codecov Documentation Supported Python versions License

Support for bulk scoring and grading. This adds models and an API for reading and modifying scores and grades in bulk.


The README.rst file should then provide an overview of the code in this repository, including the main components and useful entry points for starting to understand the code in more detail. edx-bulk-grades is a library that runs under lms. It uses the configuration settings defined in lms as well. In order to use, the library must be installed into edx-platform.

Using with Docker Devstack

Prerequisite: Have your Open edX properly installed. Note: When you see “from inside the lms” below, it means that you’ve run make lms-shell from your devstack directory and are on a command prompt inside the LMS container.

  1. Clone this repo into ../src/ directory (relative to your “devstack” repo location). This will mount the directory
    in a way that is accessible to the lms container.
  2. From inside the lms, uninstall bulk-grades and reinstall your local copy. You can just copy the following line:

    pip uninstall edx-bulk-grades -y; pip install -e /edx/src/edx-bulk-grades

    Or, you can run the following make command:

    make install-local
  3. Now, get your bulk-grades development environment set up:

    cd /edx/src/edx-bulk-grades
    virtualenv edx-bulk-grades-env
    source edx-bulk-grades-env/bin/activate
    make requirements

Making Code Changes

  1. After checking out a new branch, increment __version__ by the smallest possible value located in bulk_grades/
    This will allow edx-platform to pick up the new version.
  2. Once a branch has been merged, it is necessary to make a release on github, specifying the new version from
    __version__ set above.
  3. In order for platform to use the newest version of bulk-grades, it is necessary to run the:

    $ make upgrade

from docker shell of edx-platform. This will increment the version of edx-bulk-grades to the correct one.

  1. Once the code from step 3 is merged, this will trigger deployment of the correct versions of edx platform and bulk-grades.

Unit Testing

mock_apps folder: Since bulk_grades depends on platform during actual runtime, for unit tests, we need to mock various endpoints and calls. To this end, they are mocked in the mock_apps folder.

Since edx-bulk grades runs under platform, it is necessary to connect to platform docker:

$ make lms-shell

followed by:

$ cd /edx/src/edx-bulk-grades
make test

This will run the unit tests and code coverage numbers
