3. Single Sections and 'Must Haves' Reports - Course Request Tally and Sectioning Assistant Application

Interesting to be able to see how many Single Sections exist within the timetable - especially in a smaller school - obviously affects the number of conflicts which can be expected.
Single Sections Report - Merely an 'interesting' report. Not of particular use.

Once Final decisions have been made - the '"Must Haves" Course Requests and Sections by Department Report" provides a feedback tool for Department Heads to indicate "Must Haves" (courses which must be taught by a specific teacher or in a specific room or period or semester etc.)

4. General Information - Course Request Tally and Sectioning Assistant Application

The main functions of the application allow the user to import the current Course Request Tally data as often as necessary - typically daily because things change so frequently during this period of time - and it is so important to be working with the most recent Tally data; the use can enter the number of sections to be offered for each course; identify 'combined' courses if any; and generate a variety of detail and summary reports suitable for analysis and for submission.
Reports include analyses that provide the user with anticipated Average Class Sizes, display collective agreement Maximum Class Sizes, and flag potentially large or small courses. As well, Combined Courses are grouped together, showing Total Tally and average size etc. Summary or detail Reports can be generated for analysis or for communication and feedback with Department Heads. Reports display total number of course sections by Department and Overall total number of course sections.
Typically, the process takes place over a period of several weeks, as the user likely starts with an optimistic 'wish-list' of course sections to offer and then whittles down the number of course sections to match the overall total classroom sections as have been allocated by School Board Senior Administration.
