Projects / OpenRatings


OpenRatings is a PHP/MySQL-based engine and Web site template for rating professors. The site sports a quick survey and free-form comments, and allows students to search for the best professors on their campuses based on a number of criteria. OpenRatings is great for students that want to start (and maintain) a professor evaluation site on their own campuses, as well as for smaller universities who want to allow their students to rate professors.

        Release Notes: A brand new user interface subsystem was introduced, which makes it significantly easier to customize your OpenRatings UI to a specific campus or site. Anyone who was unfortunate enough to look at the 1.0/1.1 code will appreciate how much cleaner 1.2's separation of logic and presentation is. Anyone considering an OpenRatings site should base their work on the 1.2 release, as it is largely incompatible with the 1.0 and 1.1 releases (which are no longer maintained).

          Release Notes: This version is mostly a polish up of the 1.0 release. One security-critical bug which allowed unchecked database access and one race condition were fixed, in addition to a few bugs which should make management and installation on hosting provider machines easier. All OpenRatings 1.0 users are encouraged to upgrade.
