Works in Progress

Last month many of you were so kind as to participate in user testing for the new Ready design. The following participants deserve our thanks for sharing their thoughts and overcoming some technical difficulties:

  • Laura Rodriguez-Mascorro of California State University-Stanislaus
  • Mike Gregory of The University of Tennessee
  • Cindy Mohat of The University of Texas at Arlington
  • Scott Burnotes of University of Miami
  • Beverly Wyatt of Ohio University
  • Catherine Gottlieb of California State University-Long Beach
  • Donna Singer of Ramapo College of New Jersey
  • Jerica Deitrick of University of Iowa
  • Rob Littrell of Boise State University

We will be addressing a few issues with the redesign including: updated left hand navigation, the creation of edit and view modes, the ability to hide/show Guidance, reducing variation in page formats and more! Take a peek.


​We hope to have all design updates completed, documented and released by July. At that point I will be requesting that all users migrate from the legacy Ready system to the Ready 2015 version.
