Create pathways from student choice

If the institution is using Scientia’s Student Allocator to collect students’ module choices, or has some other means to ensure that the combination of modules chosen by each student is valid for their programme, then the students’ module choices can be used as the basis for generating pathways. The premise is that if a student has been allowed by the system to choose a given combination of modules then that must constitute either a combination that satisfies the rules of the programme or a combination that has been specially sanctioned.

Create pathways for particular programmes

This feature analyses the module choices of students on programmes that you have selected, then creates a pathway for each unique module choice combination within each selected programme. Consequently, separate pathways are created for students on different programmes even if their choice of modules is identical.

To create pathways for particular programmes, follow these steps:

  1. Open the programme list.
    • To open a list of all programmes, click Programmes in the View menu.
    • To open a list of programmes that is filtered by department, click the Department box in the toolbar above the Enterprise Course Planner dashboard, select a department, then in the Programmes section of the dashboard, click Show (beside the Total value).
  2. In the programme list, click the programme that you want to create pathways for.
  3. In the toolbar of the Programme Editor window, click Create Pathways From Student Choices by Programme. Enterprise Course Planner generates pathways, then notifies you how many pathways were created. To close the notification, click OK.
  4. To close the Programme Editor window, click OK.

Create pathways for all students

This feature analyse the student choices for all students in the system, rather than just those on specified programmes. Then, it generates a pathway for each unique module choice combination within each programme.

To create pathways for all students, follow these steps:

  1. Open the pathway list.
    • To open a list of all pathways, click Pathway Editor in the toolbar above the Enterprise Course Planner dashboard.
    • To open a list of pathways that is filtered by department, click the Department box in the toolbar above the Enterprise Course Planner dashboard, select a department, then in the Pathways section of the dashboard, click Show (beside the Total value).
  2. In the Pathway Editor window, click Create Pathways From Student Choices. Enterprise Course Planner generates pathways, then notifies you how many pathways were created. To close the notification, click OK.
  3. To close the Pathway Editor window, click OK.
