This article covers how RIO Education can support automatic enrollment to Courses.
Creating PE Pathways by Program Pathway Enrollment Method
The choices are:
- Automatic by Term/Course.
- Automatic all Terms.
PE Pathways will be created the same as before - with the Automatically Enroll in Courses checkbox = false.
Automatic by Term/Course
The first PE Pathway (PE Pathway with My Term = 1) will have its Term lookup populated with the Starting Term from the Program Enrollment, and the Automatically Enroll in Courses checkbox = true. This will then trigger the auto-enrollment process for the Courses.
The other PE Pathways will be populated during the Course completion process. For example, when the previous Term is completed, the new Term will be automatically enrolled. See the logic for identifying when all the Courses for a Term are complete below in the Course completion process section.
Automatic all Terms (future)
The first PE Pathway (PE Pathway with My Term = 1) will have its Term lookup populated with the Starting Term from the Program Enrollment and the Automatically Enroll in Courses checkbox = true.
Each subsequent PE Pathway will also have its Term lookup populated. The logic of how this is done is based on the Term records themselves having the "Previous Term" field set to identify the order terms should be completed.
Courses will be enrolled for all Terms at this time. We don't wait for a term to complete before enrolling the next term.
Course Completion process
PE Pathways now have 2 checkbox fields to track Course passing and completion. Whenever a Course Connection’s Enrollment Status or Grade Result is updated, it will find all other Course Connections under the same PE Pathway.
If all of the Courses are Completed, PE Pathway.All Courses Completed? = TRUE.
If all of the Courses are passed/RPL, PE Pathway.All Courses Passed? = TRUE.
When a PE Pathway gets updated to have one or both of these checkboxes checked, and the Program Pathway.Enrollment Method = Automatic by term/course, it will attempt to mark the next PE Pathway’s Automatically Enroll in Courses checkbox. If not all courses have been passed, it will check the Custom Setting to see if we allow auto enrollment when some courses are failed.
If the next PE Pathway’s Deferred checkbox = true, we won’t mark the Automatically Enroll in Courses checkbox.
Finding Term for PE Pathway
When Automatically Enroll in Courses = true and there is no Term on the PE Pathway, we will automatically find the appropriate term by checking the previous PE Pathway’s Term. If this is the first PE Pathway, we will check the Starting Term on the Program Enrollment.
We find the current Term, where Educational Institution and Term Label matches the Term, and where today’s date is between the Start and End dates. For online Term labels, there should only be one Term matching these conditions.
Otherwise, we find the current Term where Term.Previous Term = original term.
Automatic Enrollment logic
When Automatically Enroll in Courses = true, all required Course Offerings planned for the PE Pathway’s Term need to be enrolled in. This involves checking the Program Pathway’s Pathway Units for the planned Courses, and checking Plan Requirements for required groups and required Courses.
Once the Course Connections have been assigned the correct PE Pathways and Enrolled in the Course Offerings, they then need will be automatically enrolled in all available Sessions for each Course.
