Demand reports show the demand for courses at the end of the scheduler. They are used during the course adjustment process to determine the need for making changes to courses. These reports are loaded to the INFODESK for review by the Departments & Schools rather than printed and distributed. There are a number of different demand reports.
The scheduler creates an extract file from which it first simulates results of, then schedules, student course requests. When the desired scheduling results are reached in simulation, they are posted to student schedules.
All of the demand reports show the results of the simulation. That is, the demand reports show what the results of that particular scheduler run would be if the results were actually posted to student records.
The following table describes the demand reports in SRS:
Scheduling Algorithm Results
This report is printed AFTER the scheduling algorithm is applied and lists, for every course section:
- students who would be enrolled in the course section
- students who would NOT be enrolled in the course section
- reasons for enrollment or non-enrollment
Student Scheduling Results
For every student, this report lists every course request and its scheduling outcome. It can be printed alphabetically by student, or alphabetically by student within the division.
This report is a matrix that summarizes by division of student, the numbers and percentages of students who are scheduled for a full credit load.
Course Demand Report
This report is a matrix that lists every course (sections collapsed) by school of course and the number of requests for each course by division of the student. Only the primary requests are included in the report.
Scheduling Outcome Statistics
This report is a matrix that shows, by division of the students, the number of each kind of Advance Registration outcome, subtotaled by the school of course.
Section Scheduling Summary
This report lists each section by subjects area and course number, with their enrollment maximum limits, the number of students enrolled, and the number and reason for requests that failed.
The Scheduling Algorithm Results lists, for every course section, all of the student requests for that section with the outcomes of all the requests. The students are listed in order of their priority for the course and a line of asterisks (***) divides the list when the maximum enrollment has been reached.
The Scheduling Algorithm Results can be divided into two parts:
- the course header
- the results list
The following data is printed in the course header of the Scheduling Request Log:
- course ID and section title
- school and department (and division, if applicable) administering the course
- primary instructor
- meeting days and times
- scheduling priority rule of the section
- section type (if applicable)
- credit value of the course section
- maximum enrollment limit of the section
The results list part of the Scheduling Request Log lists the following information for every student who requested the course section:
- student name and SID
- credit value requested of the section
- grade type requested
- student's division
- student's classification
- degree toward which student is working
- student's first major
- student's scheduling priority number
- registration sequence number of the request
- the outcome of the request
- a line of asterisks dividing the enrolled students from the non- enrolled
The Student Scheduling Results lists, for every student, his or her schedule based on the results of this particular run of the scheduler. Students are printed either in alphabetical order, or in alphabetical order within division.
For each student, the report prints:
- basic student information
- schedule information
The following basic student information is printed for every student:
- name and SID
- primary academic program for the term
The following schedule information is printed for each course request the student made:
- course ID
- activity group
- course title
- credit value of the request
- credit type of the request (CU, SH, CR)
- grade type of the request (normal, P/F, AUD)
- outcome of the course request
- original status of the course request
The Scheduler Success Matrix by Division report shows the percentage of students in each division who received their full desired credit load, as well as a comparison of students' desired load to their enrolled load at the close of the scheduler run.
The report is a matrix showing the term and division/school at the top. Desired load is listed down the side, and enrolled load across the top of the matrix. The column at the far right lists the percentage of the students who were scheduled into a full credit load.
The Course Demand Report shows the number of primary requests for courses made by the students in every school.
The report shows the division/school of the student across the top and the requested courses down the side.
Sections are summarized by the course within the departments and within the schools. Course requests are subtotaled at the department and the school levels and the report begins new pages when beginning a new school.
The Scheduling Outcome Statistics report shows the totals of the different kind of course request scheduling outcomes by the students in every division or school.
The report shows the division/school of the student across the top and the requested course outcomes down the side.
Outcomes are shown within the school of offered course and numbers are subtotaled at the school level. The report does not count outcomes by individual courses or sections. For outcomes information on specific courses and sections, see the Scheduling Algorithm Results report.
The Section Scheduling Summary report shows all available course sections with the number of students successfully enrolled by the scheduler and the reasons that all requests failed.
The following information is printed for each course section:
- the course sections IDs and titles
- the course section status, if other than "open"
- each course section's maximum enrollment limit
- the number of students enrolled
- the number of requests that failed for each of the five reasons:
section closed, permission required, restriction (student ineligible to
register), excluded by quota, or time conflict
