2019/03/07

In Student Data Warehouse subject area | Student Records folder | Class Instructor Individual Taught table.  Logic is modified so all instructors defined in the individualized sections (regardless of whether the instructor is assigned with a student or not) are now included in the table.  Previously only instructors assigned with students are listed.  This change allows early data checking soonest as sections are created and instructors assigned.  Therefore the list of instructors can be validated by departments prior to students signing up for the individualized sections.

2019/02/14In Census subject area | Class table.  Corrected an issue when using Location Desc in detail class sections reports, credit hours and FTE were inflated.  The overall totals, however, were never affected.

2018/06/18

In Census subject area | Student Enrolled folder, added Withdraw Date, and Last Date Attended columns (right below withdraw code/reason columns) and Career Full-time Indicator, Career Full-Time Part-Time, Dual Career Indicator columns (at the end).
We are now having students with dual careers configured in myWSU starting Spring 2018, e.g. PHAR and BUSN.  For those students, the new career specific columns would indicate if the students are full time or part time in the career respectively.  The original IPEDS full time part time columns now has the logic of combining the total credit hours of each dual career student and report if the student is full time or part time overall in one primary career.  This logic is for counting overall university unique headcount enrollment and students full time enrollment status (in preparation especially for Census enrollment reporting).  All dual enrollment data of the students are still retained as it is, as of the snapshot date.

2018/06/18

In Student Data Warehouse subject area | Student Records folder, added new table “Student Apply to Graduate”.
In Student Data Warehouse subject area | Student Records folder | Student Enrolled table, added new column MAX TERM FLAG at the end of “Student Enrolled” table.
Student Apply to Graduate table contains the latest data (as of last night) of the students who have applied to graduate.  It is joined into the subject area so you can retrieve all the enrollment, status across all terms of the students. 
Max Term Flag is provided so data users can use it filter out only the enrollment data as of the max term activated term.  This is especially useful if they want to retrieve only the latest cumulative GPA, and the academic program/plan the student would be graduating in.  They can simply use Max Term Flag = Y as a filter.
