Health Check Report: Course Title Change

 

The Equivalency Batch Editor Health Check Reports allow you to troubleshoot and maintain your equivalencies from the target/home course perspective. The second of the Health Check Reports is the COURSE TITLE CHANGE report. This report identifies current, active equivalencies to courses that have had a change to their title.

  • Open the Equivalency Batch Editor.

The screenshot above includes equivalencies with multiple target courses. If you have an equivalency defined to multiple target courses, any of which no longer appear in your catalog, there will be a check in the MULTIPLE column. Proceed to the section titled Multiple = True for further explanation on your options with respect to equivalencies to multiple target courses where one or many of them no longer appear in your catalog.

  • To see the (current) equivalencies associated with a single target course that have had a title change, click the arrow button next to that target course.

  • The equivalencies where the course was used in an equivalency are displayed. In this example ART 361 – PAINTING III was selected. Use the arrow button beside each equivalency if you would like to view the equivalency details.
  • Click the Edit EQ button.
  • There are three options:
    • Replace the target course.
    • End Date the current equivalency.
    • End Date the current equivalency, and replace the target course in a new (copied) equivalency.

  • Option I allows you to Replace the target course. The new target can be from the same academic department or a different one. If you have added User-Added Courses to your catalog, they are also displayed and available to be selected. Only one course can be selected.
    • Select the “Replace” radio button.
    • Click the Submit button.

  • Click the Update button.
  • You will return to the list and can continue working to maintain the other items.
    • The item you just corrected will no longer appear on the list.

  • In this example, you can see the "EQ Health Check Batch Edit: Replace ART 361 with ART 361" message in the EQUIVALENCY LOG along with the date, time, and individual that took that action.
    • In this example, the same course is used as the target - the original was from the 2015/16 catalog and the new target is from the 2017/18 catalog - following a curriculum change.
  • Option II allows you to End Date the selected equivalencies, making them (all) inactive.

    • The item you just corrected will no longer appear on the list.
  • The End Date action will be recorded in the EQUIVALENCY LOG for each of the equivalencies.

  • In this example, you can see the "EQ Health Check Batch Edit: Set End Date = 09/30/2017" message in the EQUIVALENCY LOG along with the date, time, and individual that took that action.
  • Option III combines both of the previous options. It allows you to Date Cap the existing equivalencies and Replace the existing course - by copying the equivalencies and replacing the target course. You will add an End Date to the existing equivalencies and optionally add a Begin Date for the new equivalencies moving forward. You can Replace the course from the same academic department or a different one. If you have added User-Added Courses to your catalog, they are also displayed and available to be selected.
