After running the Mass Student Scheduler the following reports can help identify conflicts. In this lesson, you will learn all about the Master Scheduler Conflict report and how it can assist in determining where the scheduler had a conflict.
In order to conduct this lesson, you will have had to conduct the following:
- Affiliations and visibility into the academic year you are scheduling for
- At least (1) one draft schedule available to view
- Courses in the Course Catalog
- Student Course Requests completed
Where to Start
- Select Scheduling.
- Under Draft Schedule Reports, select Master Scheduler Conflicts.
- Make sure to select a draft schedule if you haven't already.
- Select the types of course requests to Show
- Select the types of course requests that potentially conflict with the above course request types
- By default, Courses with conflict is the selected Restricted to type, providing where the conflicts actually are between the scheduler and student course requests
- Select Submit to run the report and see results
What are Singletons? A Singletoni s a course with one section. A doubleton is a course with two sections. Larger schools may have tripletons, a course with three sections. The distribution of singletons, doubletons, and tripletons over the school day, increases the possibility of students receiving their first requests
|No Conflicts||Few Conflicts/Low Percentage||Some Conflicts/Mid Percentage||Many Conflicts/High Percentage|
Results are color-coded according to the percentage of conflicted course requests. Green sections have no conflicts. Sections with conflict range from yellow to red, with red sections having higher percentages of conflicts. Each section that appears in the report has some basic information listed about its course and teacher:
Conflict counts and percentages appear beneath the basic section info. If a course appears in the conflict list, it means that a section of that course is being offered in the same period as the course noted at the top of the box, and that there are students who have requested both courses. The count shows how many students requested both courses.
If you see that there are course requests incomplete or not completed, continue to get requests in. Solve conflicts as much as possible to maximize your scheduling success.
