Auckland Testing Summary 1 September 2012
Who: Fabiana, John, Tabitha, Tom
Build 12.1.0 for xo-1.75 (build 21) and also on XO-1.5
Physics: Still doing that odd refresh thing at the top of the screen.
Calculate When you do x-1 it shows x-1 (not as superscript - so looks
like a subtraction). xy - it is anti-intuitive that the format is eg
pow(2,5) - when you call the function it shows pow() so I tend to put eg
2pow(5) - perhaps putting the comma between the brackets when the
function is called might make it more explicit. Especially since the
reported error provides no hint as to the expected syntax. All
trigonometric functions seem to respond but have not checked accuracy of
answers. The error reporting provides no information as to what is wrong
with either the syntax or the values used thought. For example - asin(3)
returns”error at 1: math domain error’. why not explicitly say what
values the function is defined for? I think that adding some kind of
link to help would be useful - eg not clear how to make a plot, other
than trial and error.
Measure seems ok.
Paint seems ok.
Browse can read a page in NZ herald ok.
Memorise plays all levels ok - did not try making game
Get Books - Icon does not show colour after use, works otherwise
Read, when rotated can legibly display a full page of The Metamorphosis
by Kafka from
Feedbooks, but page down moves slightly less than one page, meaning the
inter-page gap moves across the screen as you page down. Should there be
a fit page mode so you can read page by page.
Browse seems to be blocking popups. This makes replying to email in
zimbra difficult. Open link in new window also doesn’t work
Tam Tam Mini works
Record high qual issue
The following activities start and pass basic play test
Shutdown from centre of ring doesn’t work
