Meeting Objectives

Gap Analysis / Requirements Gathering  The goal of this meeting is to gain a mutual understanding of the identified remediation gap and to document any requirements necessary for the remediation of that gap.  

Key CS Modules Involved

  • Student Records

Meeting Notes and Decisions

  1. Test Scores/Milestones
    1. Tables not named consistently.  
      • College did not identify specific issues but, the college exceeds the 1 allowable local test id with APM and SFCCAPM and are using test id’s when they should be using milestones. A solution design document will be drafted to address.
    2. May need to be rebuilt.
      • Same note as above in a
    3. A consistent spot for placement such as under letter score.
      • The college clearly stated they need placement information clearly displayed for students and advisors. A solution design document will be drafted to explain how to use Academic Advisement Reports to complete this.
    4. Milestones need to be built for testing. For example, under ‘Milestones’ we use ‘APM’ but it only gives us “HSGPA” and “PreCalc Agreement.”  
      • Colleges clearly stated more training and information on when to use milestones are needed. A solution design document will be drafted to address the training needs.
    5. Need “SAT,” “ACT,” and “Smarter Balanced” designations.  They would then show up under the ‘Milestones’ heading in the student’s ‘Student Center’ and everyone would know exactly how the student placed.
      • Same note as with c
    6. Test scores don’t place students into courses
      • Same note as with c
