Examples of Cross-Listing and Cross Section Linking Interaction

Cross-listing and Linking of Courses

The following tested and the expected behavior has been confirmed.

Scenarios 1-4: Cross-listing after course section linking (CSL)
Scenario 1

  1. Targeted section of a cross-list is a master linked section
      • X is the master section of a linked section
      • Y is linked to X
      • Z is linked to X
      • THEN A is cross-listed to X
      • Correct Results in Schoology:
        • A does not exist
        • SIS enrollments for A are in X
        • When working in X, enrollments for A are shown whenever enrollments for X are shown
        • Grade pass back will send grades and materials to section A for section A enrollments
  1. Remove linked child section from cross-listed linked section (child section is not target of a cross-list)
      • Unlink Y from X
      • Correct Results in Schoology:
        • A does not exist
        • SIS enrollments for A are in X
        • When working in X, enrollments for A are shown whenever enrollments for X are shown
        • Grade pass back will send grades and materials to section A for section A enrollments
        • Y is a separate section, not linked to X, and no enrollments for A can be seen in Y

Scenario 2

  1. Targeted section of a cross-list is a child linked section
      • X is the master section of a linked section
      • Y is linked to X
      • Z is linked to X
      • THEN A is cross-listed to Y
      • Correct Results in Schoology:
        • A does not exist
        • SIS enrollments for A are in Y
        • When working in X, enrollments for A are shown whenever enrollments for Y are shown
        • Grade pass back will send grades and materials to section A for section A enrollments
  1. Remove linked child section from cross-listed linked section - child section is target of a cross-list
      • Unlink Y from X
      • Correct Results in Schoology:
        • A does not exist
        • Y is a separate section, not linked to X
        • Enrollments for A can be seen in Y
        • SIS enrollments for A are not in X
        • Grade pass back will send grades and materials to section A for section A enrollments

Scenario 3–Currently, a user could do this scenario and we will not stop them; however, this will not yield desirable results. We are going to enhance cross-listing upload process to block a user from doing this.

  1. Child section of a cross-list is a master linked section
      • X is the master section of a linked section
      • Y is linked to X
      • Z is linked to X
      • THEN X is cross-listed to stand alone section A (A is the target section)
      • Correct Results in Schoology (this behavior is pending):
        • A cross-listing row that crosslists a master section of a linked section should fail With message You cannot cross-list a linked section.

Scenario 4–Currently, a user could do this scenario and we will not stop them; however, this will not yield desirable results. We are going to enhance cross-listing upload process to block a user from doing this.

  1. Child section of a cross-list is a child linked section.
      • X is the master section of a linked section
      • Y is linked to X
      • Z is linked to X
      • THEN Y is cross-listed to stand alone section A (A is the target section)
      • Correct Results in Schoology (this behavior is pending):
        • A cross-listing row that crosslists a master section of a linked section should fail With message You cannot cross-list a linked section.

Scenarios 5-8: Cross section linking after cross-listing

Scenario 5

  1. Targeted section of a cross-list is a master linked section
      • A is cross-listed to X
      • THEN linking of sections is done
        1. X is the master section of a linked section
        2. Y is linked to X
        3. Z is linked to X
      • Correct Results in Schoology:
        • A does not exist
        • SIS enrollments for A are in X
        • When working in X, enrollments for A are shown whenever enrollments for X are shown
        • Y exist in Schoology and is linked to X
        • Z exist in Schoology and is linked to X
        • Grade pass back will send grades and materials to section A for section A enrollments
  1. Unmap a cross-listing between a section and a master section of a linked section
      • Unmap the cross-listing from A from X
      • Correct Results in Schoology:
        • A does not exist
        • Enrollment for A are not in X
        • Enrollments for X are in X
        • Y exist in Schoology and is linked to X
        • Z exist in Schoology and is linked to X
      • Provision section A
        • Correct Results in Schoology
        • A exists in Schoology
      • Provision enrollments for A
        • Correct Results in Schoology
        • Enrollments for A are in section A

Scenario 6

  1. Targeted section of a cross-list is a child linked section
      • A is cross-listed to Y
      • THEN linking of sections is done
        1. X is the master section of a linked section
        2. Y is linked to X
        3. Z is linked to X
      • Correct Results in Schoology:
        • A does not exist
        • SIS enrollments for A are in X, but are shown as Y enrollments
        • When working in X, enrollments for A are shown whenever enrollments for Y are shown
        • Y exist in Schoology and is linked to X
        • Z exist in Schoology and is linked to X
        • Grade pass back will send grades and materials to section A for section A enrollments
    • Unmap a cross listing between a section and a child section of a linked section
      • Unmap cross-list A from Y
      • Correct Results in Schoology:
        • A does not exist
        • Enrollment for A are not in X
        • Enrollments for X are in X
        • Enrollments for Y show in X
        • Y exist in Schoology and is linked to X
        • Z exist in Schoology and is linked to X
      • Provision section A
        • Correct Results in Schoology:
          • A exists in Schoology
      • Provision enrollments for A
        • Correct Results in Schoology:
          • Enrollments for A are in section A

Scenario 7–The following scenario is not possible, because step 1.1 is impossible to complete.

  1. Targeted section of a cross-list is a child linked section
    • X is cross-listed to Y
    • THEN linking of sections is done
      • X is the master section of a linked section (this is not possible because they will never be able to choose Y to link, because it does not exist in Schoology)
      • Y is linked to X
      • Z is linked to X

Scenario 8–The following scenario is not possible, because step 1.2 is impossible to complete.

  • Cross-listed section of a cross-list is a child-linked section
      • Y is cross-listed to A
      • THEN linking of sections is done:
        • X is the master section of a linked section
        • Y is linked to X (this is not possible because they will never be able to choose Y to link, because it does not exist in Schoology)
        • Z is linked to X
