Pierre commented on Prototyping for Election Accessibility, Part 2

While the User Interface design is important in any system, the bigger challenge of e-voting is the identification / authentication process, the vote tabulation process, and audit capability.   The overall system value to be elevated is confidence in the legitimacy, fairness and non-tamperability of the entire infrastructure, from the database used to authenticate each voter, to the posting of final vote results, and ability to investigate exceptions, or to handle a recount (or prevent its necessity) in a contested result situation.   If you poke around, you'll likely find some systems requirements.   The book "Libertyville" by Gavin Newsom talks about the future of e-voting.   I'm very glad to see young people interested in e-voting as a systems design problem.   The payoff will be enormous, even though getting there will have to be slow and systematic.

Pierre commented on No class, just exams?

This approach is very good, if we broaden the notion of a test to a full assessment of capabilities. I would not favor a full assessment being reduced to what can be captured in a standardized test. Practical, communicative, and knowledge skills are all important to assess. One other concern is that the assessment evolve over time, so as to stay up-to-date with the real-world.
