I have a situation that is a little more complicated than I’m used to
dealing with. I thought I would see what others thought before I made
a decision spent a few days and realized I had done something stupid
and had to start a re-write
I have been asked to create a web-based course evaluation system for
the Community College I work for. My first response is: No problem,
that won’t take long at all. Then I learn that a committee gets
together every year to evaluate the evaluation process (apparently
they like to change the questions. The problem I see is maintaining
the relevance of old data after the committee has decided to make
changes to the evaluation form.
I’m thinking I will have to perform some sort of dynamic table
creation so that the question/answer data on old evaluations will
still be sane if the committee makes changes to the questions/format
of the evaluations in the future.
Does anyone have a better idea for future proofing this thing?
