Simple Course Evaluation
I'm a computer science teacher at a secondary school in Sweden. For the last 4 years I've also work part time as Fronter root administrator at our school.
A couple of months ago one of the headmasters asked me about the possibilities of using Fronter as a course evaluation tool. I told him that I'd probably figure something out.
My basic idea was to use the test tool and create a template test that every teacher could use as course evaluation. The result should then be visible for both the specific teacher and the head teachers as well.
I started by creating a new room in which I invited a group called All teachers. I gave this group the second highest rights, in Sweden it's called Radera (Delete). Next I invited every teaching group with the lowest rights, in Sweden it's called Läs (Read). Lastly I invited a special group only including head teachers and gave this group the highest rights.
In my next step, I created one individual folder for each teacher in the standard Resources. In the standard resources beside all the individual folders I created my test to be used as course evaluation. With these steps the basic setup was completed.
When teachers want their students to perform the course evaluation they need to complete the following preparations.
1. Create a new folder in their individual folder for the specific course evaluation. Name this new folder something like Course name - current semester.
2. Change the rights to this folder by

intended. In Swedish the labels are Anpassa

3. Copy my template course evaluation (test) into the newly created folder.
4. Copy the URL to the just copied course evaluation and embed it into a notification, News, in the course room and encourage the students to go through with the evaluation.
With this solution every teacher has their evaluation stored away independent of their course rooms AND the evaluations are accessible for the head teacher.
