New release CodeGrade Orchid.2

We have just released CodeGrade Orchid.2. Our latest version brings many small improvements to the usability and flexibility of CodeGrade.

One of the highly requested features we have added to this release is negative continuous rubric categories. Instead of continuous categories being a scale that always only allowed scores of positive numbers, you can now manually set the lower bound and upper bound. This gives you way more flexibility and allows you to use continuous rubric categories to deduct points automatically for e.g. late submissions.

We have also improved the usability of our assignment states (hidden, open and done), which are now more consistent with the rest of our UI on the Assignment Management Page and can now be found under the General tab. Furthermore, we have again added more information to the Submissions list page, which now shows how many students have submitted and how many of those you are currently viewing on the current page.

Finally, we have added an option to improve the flexibility of our peer feedback feature. It now has an option option to change the way division of peer feedback is done after the deadline has passed. We used to always guarantee that every student would review, and was reviewed by the set amount of students. If a student submitted for the first time after the deadline this could cause a re-division. It is now possible to disable this behavior, this will not change the division for any students that already handed in, but might cause some students to receive more or less reviews than the set amount.

Next to these large updates, we have added various small improvements and a new payment method. Please contact us if you would like to learn more about this. To find a full list of all our changes, please check out the full release notes in our changelog here.
