GSoC 2019 : Final Evaluations

Hi all GSoC Students,

In a couple of days later, Action GSoC students will begin submitting their Final Evaluations for GSoC 2019 (starting Monday, August 19). We require students to complete ALL of the following requirements before mentors begin their evaluations on August 26.

  1. Prepare a single sharable document with your project work (12 weeks of work)
  2. Final presentation Talk post
  3. Update Project Wiki Page

Single sharable documentation for your project

As part of the final evaluation, you will be asked to provide a document link to the work you’ve done for the program. We ask that you create a new blog post using the format provided at the end of this post and provide that as your final link in the evaluation. You can find examples below,

P.S : Please find the Project Summary template at the end of this post.

Once you submit your final evaluation, you can not change it. You should share your link with your mentor BEFORE submitting your evaluation to make sure it’s okay.

Final presentation Talk post

As well as adding a final blog post, students will need to post a new topic on OpenMRS Talk, titled ‘GSoC 2019 - Project Title - Final Presentation’, using the same format and details as your blog post, and make sure to tag these with #gsoc2019-finaleval and #gsoc2019. You can also have a look at examples of GSoC 2018 final presentations to see what’s expected.

Update Project wiki page

Please make sure to update the project page on the OpenMRS wiki with details of what was completed, any relevant links to code repositories and/or other resources, and importantly, clarify if there is still any outstanding work to be done on the project. One of the aims here is to move pages over to the Completed Projects section, but we need details on the status of each project first.
