- After the project, an Automatic feedback feature is successfully included in the Wiki-Ed dashboard that is shown in the MyArticles component that shows the articles edited by a particular user and also shows them in the Articles Edited Section for the suggestion to be reviewed by instructors.
- There is a feature for users to add their own suggestions on the edits in addition to the Automatic Feedback.
- Adding an easy way for users to give feedback on this feature.
- Even if the Automatic Suggestions couldn’t be made smarter as part of my project I hope the work done to document the ORES features would encourage such improvements.
- Making a spreadsheet of the ORES suggestions pointed to some blatant errors in ORES predictions due to redirects and the issue is notified in this task.
- I couldn’t contribute to making the Automatic Suggestions smarter as I lacked some experience with Wikipedia Editing and this is a major scope of improvement for the project.
- Adding the feature for custom user suggestions on the edits in the Article-Viewer component where it could be more relevant.
|May 4 to May 30||Community bonding period. UI design for displaying the feedback messages with links to provide feedback on the suggestions. Designing UI mockups. Framing questions for the feedback form.|
|May 30 to June 12||Creating buttons for pulling feedback in articles section under all subcategories (example : Available articles) and for pulling feedback in every row of contributions under an editor in editors tab (but only visible on logged in editors' contributions). This enables only the respective editors to receive feedback for their Sandbox drafts. Adding a toggle/filter UI to switch to only My Contributions in the Activity tab and in each row of feedback button will be present.|
|June 13 to June 19||Design feedback form (link to which is present in modal opened by the feedback button) . UI for admin user to view the feedback responses collected. Announce feature in mailing lists or through other channels to the community|
|June 20 to June 26||Improve the feedback with ORES features with the help of feedback received and find other features that can be helpful in giving feedback to find areas of improvements in ORES.|
|June 26 to June 30||Phase I evaluation|
|June 30 to July 7||Design Onboarding UX for users to get introduced to the feature which can improve feedback.|
|July 8 to July 14||Write feedback based on the article grades(ORES predicted) using https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Grading_scheme .|
|July 15 to July 31||Designing method to measure how the feedback affects the following edit and collecting data(Needs more investigation) and improvements in feedback messages based on the feedback responses received.|
|July 28||Phase II evaluation|
|August 1 to August 8||Improve feedback based on the data collected on the effectiveness of the feedback messages.|
|August 9 to August 15||Improvements based on the feedback responses received and find and document useful features that can be added to ORES.|
|August 16 to August 28||Bug fixes, Writing documentation and Updating appropriate guides. Code cleanup for submission.|
|August 29 to September 5||Mentors submit final student evaluations|
|September 6||Final results of Google Summer of Code 2017 announced|

Currently in the sophomore year of B.Tech in Engineering Physics in Indian Institute of Technology, Madras. Heard about this program in a campus wikimedia hack session. The odd semester starts on August second week but I will be able to commit enough time for the project as there are no exams during the period.
I am eligible for both Outreachy and GSoC. I am applying for both the programs with the same project. I am hoping that this will be a kickstart into open source development. This would be a great way to get exposure on real world applications, collaboration of code and interacting with the open source community.
What inspired me to work on this project is that I like the concept of letting students submit assignments as wikipedia content which the whole world can see and review rather than as a term paper to the professor. I would like to continue contributing to this(Wiki edu dashboard) project and it would be great to see it implemented in more universities worldwide.
I have gained experience with Ruby on Rails and VCS (specifically git) by working in college techops teams to design portals for several organizations in college.
I like to participate in Appathons (I develop Android apps) and have creates several Android apps.
I have developed a game Quantum Chess (hosted at http://qchess.bitballoon.com/ ) with Unity3D (UnityScript).
