This release includes an entirely new portal front-end application written in Angular, as well as support for load-balancing and a backend re-written with Spring-Boot.

Some major features of the new portal site are:

  • Updated page aesthetics, design, and structure
  • New WISE unit library, including search and filtering by Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)
  • Redesigned teacher and student classroom schedules
  • Google Classroom integration (sign up with Google + add WISE units as Google Classroom assignments)

Other selected new features:

  • Milestones and Teacher Action Reports: Milestones and Teacher Action Reports: Notifies teachers when the class has completed a certain checkpoint, can provide summary data and suggest potential teacher interventions.
  • Teacher Notebook: A persistent space for teachers to take notes during a classroom run.
  • Summary component: This allows teachers and students to view a bar graph of the aggregate student responses or scores. You can read more about it here.

Closed Issues for This Release (Caveat: we culled 100+ issues to clean up our workspace. Many of these will make their way into the applications that we write in the future.)
