1 Reporting on your XML Field Data Will Trillich Sean Keesler Attribution Share Alike

2 The Agenda A discussion of the problem A demonstration of our approach Starting the dialogue July th Sakai Conference - Boston, MA, U.S.A.

3 The Problem So We Begin By Discussing July th Sakai Conference - Boston, MA, U.S.A.3

4 Reporting “Pulling patterns out of your data” How many A’s, B’c, C’s? Who’s our top student? What’s the average eval score? Without reporting, why even have the data? Reporting requires that you can get to the data In OSP, form data is buried in XML Reporting tools need SQL field-level access

5 Form Data Entry quick-evaluation form content-grade (0-4) style-grade (0-4)

6 Form Data Stored as XML After the data is entered it’s stored as a monolithic chunk of XML How do we report on content-grade? Nice work 4 A bit less passive voice should have been used 3

7 Data Access at the SQL level Reporting Tools need July th Sakai Conference - Boston, MA, U.S.A.7

8 Reporting Tools Crystal Reports Cognos Impromptu, Series 8 Pentaho BIRT Etc… They all use SQL-selects to pull data; monolithic XML chunks are opaque unless you tack on XSL to navigate the tree

9 Parsing Data Via XSL You can use XSL to navigate your XML data But it’s painful/costly to set up And it’s slow (Yuck!)

10 Wouldn’t it be nice if… Imagine pulling a report like this on OSP data using an off-the-shelf reporting tool

11 Reporting Gizmo Introducing Serensoft’s July th Sakai Conference - Boston, MA, U.S.A.11 Built with help and guidance from ThreeCanoes and Agilearn

12 The Sizzle Here’s a Cognos Impromptu report:

13 More Sizzle Another Cognos report

14 Even More Sizzle We’ll show you live reports from live form data, changing before your very eyes (if the network cooperates)

15 Admin Interface Needs Attention This is the first iteration, don’t forget

16 Caveats It’s brand-new so there are lots of decisions yet to be made (this is where we’re asking for your feedback) Security SQL Schema etc It’s an “admin” tool only It just parses the XML and puts the data where you can “SELECT” it

17 Begin The Dialogue Not it’s time to July th Sakai Conference - Boston, MA, U.S.A.17

18 What Issues Are Important To You? Now we open the floor to start the dialog We’ll continue this on-list (sakai-dev) in the future Your feedback will help us shape this gizmo to provide the functionality you require Let’s start talking!
