Course View Form

This form lets you view and edit the information pertaining to a course. It has 4 pages: Details, Subjects, Requisites and Assignment Types.

Details

This page shows the details of the course which can be edited via the Course Edit Form by clicking on the lower right.

Subjects

This page is used to list the course under various subjects. Grouping courses under subjects is useful when defining certain curriculum requirements of a program of study: a requirement can be defined for example as a required number of credits from courses in a specific subject, optionally within a specific level range. See the Program Requirement Edit Form help topic.

Click on the lower right to list the course under a new subject.

Requisites

Requisites are other courses which the student must have taken before taking this course. Requisistes fall under 2 categories: pre-requisites are requisites which must be fulfilled before taking the course, co-requisistes are requisites which must be fulfilled either before or else simultaneously.

Click on the lower right to add a new requisite: you must first select a course and select then whether that course is a co-requisite or a pre requisiste.

Assignment Types

Whenever you create a new class, the class is automatically assigned all currently active assignment types (for ex: "Homework", "Test", "Participation", ...) that you have defined along with their default properties (weight of the type when computing final grade, number of low grades ignored, minimum average in the type required to pass the class.) If you would like the default values of a type to be different than the standard defaults when creating a class for this course, then just add the type you would like to override and specify its values for this course.

For example, classes for the course "MATH-701 Advanced Math" may require that the weight of the "Test" assignment type is twice the weight of the "Homework" assignment type, though normally those two types have the same weight for most other courses: in that case add those 2 assignment types to this course and override the standard values with the ones that apply for this course.

Click on the lower right to add an Assignment Type

Check Gradebook and Assignment Types for more details on assignment types.

Notes:

  • The values of an Assignment Type can always be overridden at the Class level,no matter what the standard default values are.
  • You only need to add an Assignment Type if the course is an exception to the standard default values!
  • Check the help topics on Assignment Types and Class Assignment Types for more details.
