GSoC 2020 : Final evaluations

Hi all GSoC Students,

We hope, all are doing a great job with great contributions to their projects. Please be aware of the deadlines for final evaluations.

Work Period Action Item
August 24 - 31 18:00 UTC Final week: Students submit their final work product and their final mentor evaluation

Final Submission Guidelines

We require students to complete ALL of the following requirements before mentors begin their evaluations on August 31.

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

1. Video presentation for your project

In addition to the evaluation on the GSoC site, we require students to record, upload and share a short (3-5 min) video on Talk that describes and demos the project you’re working on. Please post links to your videos as new topics on Talk under the GSoC category, and make sure to tag these with #gsoc2020-finaleval and #gsoc2020. The aim of this is to provide a quick overview of the project to share with the OpenMRS community.

The video should not exceed 5 minutes, and would ideally include a walk through of the work you’ve already developed and/or are currently developing. It’s fine to set the scene by describing the project’s objectives, milestones, etc. But please make sure to also include a description/demo of the work you’ve done on the project, and what’s left to do in the final stages of the GSoC program.

Submissions will follow the same time frame as the final evaluation - you are expected to post links to your videos on Talk next week between the 24th August and 31st August.

We suggest taking a look at some of the last years’ presentations for examples of what’s expected,

2. 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 here.

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.

3. 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 2020 - Project Title - Final Presentation’, using the same format and details as your blog post, and make sure to tag these with #gsoc2020-finaleval and #gsoc2020. You can also have a look at examples of GSoC 2019 final presentations to see what’s expected.

4. 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.

Please let me know, if you have any questions.
