Release 3.4.0


Assessment & Evaluation

  • Ability to submit partially completed forms when the assessment method allows (e.g., complete and confirm via email)

  • Correctly enforce mandatory versus optional items

  • Correctly visualize free-text comment boxes that are linked to scale items, including prompted, optional, and mandatory comments

  • Hide & ignore validation of concerns items and form feedback items for student/resident users

  • Display anchored response descriptors in-line for rubric items

  • Correctly load default item responses (when enabled)

  • Display form elements and items in correct order

  • Improvements to Save & Submit functionalities

    • Automatically save assessment & evaluation progress without needing to click 'Save Draft' (i.e., auto-save each time a new response is selected)

    • New "Save/Submit" button that provides a secondary confirmation before saving or submitting the assessment

      • includes real-time feedback on save progress (traditional 'spinning' load icon beside the Save/Submit button while the item is saving)

      • button turns red if there is an error with saving or submitting and modal will include the error message


  • Main calendar landing page correctly lists today's events

  • Upcoming page correctly lists upcoming events within the next week


  • Apostrophes are properly rendered

  • Ability to open previously read notices from the "Read" page

  • "Pull to refresh" added to all pages

  • Swipe between pages to go forward/back between notices



  • Single Sign-On (SSO) and enhanced authentication options

    • The mobile app now supports different authentication flows depending on what your server is set up to support:

      • SSO only

      • dual SSO and local login/LDAP options

      • local login/LDAP only (default)

    • In order to enable SSO on mobile, you will need to update to API version 3.x to add a new endpoint that indicates which methods are supported. If you don't add this endpoint, the mobile app will default to local/LDAP login only (however, without API 3.x you will encounter other assessment errors).

    • Clicking the "Login with SSO" button will open your institution's SSO portal using a Webview. You will be automatically redirected to the standard app user-interface upon successful authentication.

Assessment & Evaluation

  • Item & form navigation

    • Ability to swipe between items

    • New Save/Submit button and navigation arrows that are always accessible

  • Procedure form support - new modal for selecting the procedure

  • UGME EPA triggering (Queen's)- assessments can be triggered for EPAs with custom codes (e.g., EPA1, EPA2, instead of D,F,C,P)

  • Assessment cues

    • ability for target to optionally enter cue for all supported assessment methods

    • visualized to the assessor on mobile when completing assessments

  • Visualize EPA titles at the beginning of Rubric/Flex forms

  • Visualize form instructions and free-text items in scrollable and easily identifiable information pages

  • Multi-select contextual variables are now supported

  • Triggering interface:

    • Honours CBME enabled setting to display only relevant courses/programs

    • Skips the course/program selector if the student/resident is only enrolled in one active CBME enabled course/program

    • Honours assessment methods settings to display only relevant assessment methods for the selected course/program

Implementation Notes:

In addition to the comments above regarding the API, please note the following PRs that may need to be cherry-picked to ME (these are merged in release 1.17.1, only prior releases need to cherry-pick):

  • The /assessments/courses endpoint has been modified to accept a cbme_only boolean flag that will limit the course picker to only CBME courses if the flag is enabled. You will also need this PR to receive the flag from ME:
