Change Logs (Mid to Finals)

Date Feature Affected Previously Currently Change Management Action
26/03/2014 Tournament Not part of scope Create a CSV file format that would include Tournament and Round details The team received a list of requirements from client's client. Due to agreed upon requirements and team's limited time, team decided to complete this requirement. Team would have to allocate time to complete this.
26/03/2014 Tournament Not part of scope Include tournament collaborator feature in the Tournament feature. This is so that client's client would have the school directors be able to have a higher control over the tournament. The team received a list of requirements from client's client. Due to agreed upon requirements and team's limited time, team decided to complete this requirement. Team would have to allocate time to complete this.
11/03/2014 Events When sharing the Ranking page under Events feature via Facebook, those who click on the Ranking page link will only view Ranking for that Events and would not know what the Ranking is for. Client wants to add "I'd like to participate" and other buttons on the Ranking page so that those who access the shared link would know it is an event that they themselves might want to join, watch or keep updated about. As this is a UI change, this will be taken into consideration
11/03/2014 Events No check box available to send RSVP to those who signed up for Tournament at one shot. Client wants check box option "Select All" that let's school facilitators to send RSVP to all the students in an event. As this is a UI change, this will be taken into consideration
09/03/2014 Mastery Based Coaching Client wanted 10 questions per game. Now Client wants 1 question per game. Logic will follow as such:
  1. Click Next problem
  2. New single problem game gets created
  3. Click run to solve problem
  4. Repeat until problem solved or player clicks "Skip Problem"
  5. Clear all boxes once game is over and wait for next problem to be pressed
As this is a major change in logic, team will only take into consideration a part of the change like taking the response per question and push it into the database
04/03/2014 Registration & Tracking Map that allows user to see the number of players registered with respect to each school. Event ranking for event, display the people who have done mastery based coaching and purpose driven, badges, Events map, badges and levels completed. This feature will be dropped. The team realised that the scope of this change is of a large scale and it would be best for the team to focus on polishing the current feature instead of trying to add on top of the existing feature.
04/03/2014 Easy Web Prototyping To do up a single page to implement simple Plunkr code. Save the text that people put in one box and insert it into an iFrame that renders it as a web page. Client changed feature name to 'Portfolio'. This feature will be dropped. The team realised that the scope of this change is of a large scale and it would be best for the team to focus on polishing the current features instead of adding new features
04/03/2014 Web Dev Games To do up two modules, HTML and AngularJS on Practice page for users to learn. The games will be similar to Easy web prototyping by having live rendering of the codes as user codes. Client wanted users to code out HTML, JS and CSS file. There will no longer be multiple files. Instead, the feature will be implementing E2E (End to End) testing. Team took this requirement change into consideration since the task is deemed doable with team's current resources (sufficient time, manpower available, etc.)

  • Tournament Competition had changed of dates which requires the team to re-prioritize while Client has different priorities along the way.
  • The team decided to put Web Development prototype on hold.
7 UT 15th Feb UT 11th Feb
  • We moved forward the testing because more people were available on the 11th as opposed to 15th.
Mid-Term Preparation - Mid-Term Preparation -
  • The Slides and Wiki was updated throughout this iterations.
Events 17th Feb Events 11th Feb
  • As we agreed that events will be one of the feature presented during the presentation, we needed to re-arrange certain task in order to to make time for testing of the events feature. Our mid-term presentation drew the earlier slot, hence team just re-prioritise the task within the same iterations. Only what was completed for events was tested.
Group Based Tournament 14th Feb - -
  • There was some hold-back due to the API web service. As we are dependent on our client with this aspect, we decided to just push it to the next iteration as we are subjected to our client's availability. What we can do was to simulate it on a local server, until the client's server is up, there is not much point merely waiting. We decided to use the time to better prepare for our mid-term.
Mastery Based Coaching -
  • Before Mid-term, the client changed from single problem game to 10 problem games. However, this time, he realized that he requires each game to be created separately (back-end) while functon the same(front-end) in order for him to derive the necessary data for his research. The data derived from this feature is Valuable for our client's current research progress.
  • This change was evaluate careful and an impact analysis was done.Yousof code was initially designed for single problems, It took in a day of free time to revert part to the previous logic. We were still able to continue the iteration as per normal.

  • Team pushes the UT earlier as we drew the earlier time slot of Mid-terms.
  • Focuses on what we aimed and was required to present for mid-terms.
  • Delays was on client's web service, hence nothing much the team could do.
8 Map and Registration ( new Features) 28th Feb Actual Actual Date
  • There were several issues that our client wanted to change. However, after mid-term, we had a discussion about proper prioritization. Client has agreed to remove these requirements.
Easy Web Prototyping 3rd March Actual Actual Date
  • There were several issues that our client wanted to add. However, after mid-term, we had a discussion about proper prioritization. Client has agreed to remove these requirements.
Events (Create & RSVP) 23rd Feb Events (Create & RSVP) 23rd Feb
  • Create was completed but there was a delay with the RSVP with regards to the client's Web service. However, given the buffer, it was still completed within the iterations.
Group based Tournament ( Mentor Assignment and Live Ranking ) 23rd Feb Actual 23rd Feb
  • As the team completed most of the content only localhost, the team here merely require to make changes and test the system as it goes life.
  • Majority of the function work accordingly to plan upon transferring to live server, better than anticipated.
Value Added Service Recruiting of Students for Live-Tournament Event
  • On the side line, the team assited our client but making his Live-Tournament event bigger but contacting various institutions.
  • The team spoke to NP , TP ,DMHS and NJC representative and got them to took part in the Live-Tournament.
  • This was not a change request by our client, but this allows to conduct our UT with more user while adding more value to our client
  • Team took personal time to do this.
  • Majority of the function work accordingly to plan upon transferring to live server, better than anticipated.

Project Metrics

Project Risk

Click to View Project Risk

Technical Complexity:

  1. Testing and development is complex since team needs to code and test on 3 different platforms: localhost, development and live SingPath. Hence, higher scaled features like Tournament is complex to deploy. Click here to see SingPath's Deployment Process
  1. Need to compare users' scores from the levels they have practised under Practice section for Mastery-based coaching to measure the user's percentile. These statistics would also be used to find out the user's weak areas, based on the number of attempts with respect to a question and the time taken.

Quality Attributes

Availability

  • SingPath is hosted on Google App Engine. The cloud infrastructure ensures a high up-time which currently stands at 97.05%. For the latest numbers, please refer to GAE Status Page.

Flexibility

  • The utilization of angularJS enforces a strict MVC architecture that defines clear responsibilities for each component. Business logic can be edited in the controllers without affecting the other components.

Interoperability

  • SingPath uses API calls to the backend server to retrieve data in JSON format. This approach allows for easy exchange and reuse of information with both new and old systems as long as they follow this widely accepted standard.

Usability

  • We will be conducting a total of 5 User Tests to ensure that our application is well received/accepted by the final presentation.
    • After each User Test, we will collate all the feedback and tweak our application to make it even more user friendly.

Scalability

  • Automatic Scalability (Infinitely Scalable) as advertised by GAE
    • "Automatic scaling is built in with App Engine, all you have to do is write your application code and we'll do the rest. No matter how many users you have or how much data your application stores, App Engine can scale to meet your needs." - Google App Engine
  • Tournament
    • Approximately 40 concurrent users will be accessing SingPath at the same time during the Tournament
    • Will be conducting stress/load test prior to the actual Tournament to anticipate potential performance issues and rectify accordingly

Testing:

  1. IS429
  2. IDA
  3. JC
  4. POLY
  5. A/B Split
