The instructional method an institution offers a student to take a course. *Ad Astra has attempted to provide a library of standard modality options (below) that might meet most institution's needs while supporting the ability to offer standard reports and other insights without needing to know custom names in advance.
Hybrid Modality: A standard modality option often used to represent a modality in which students attend both in-person and online, at different times. There may be designated times and days when they attend in person, with online activities required at other times.
HyFlex Modality: A standard modality option often used to represent a modality in which students can choose to attend either in person or online, depending on their preference or circumstance. This might mean that the course meets on campus and is also available for synchronous or asynchronous online delivery.
On-Campus Modality: A standard modality option that describes the traditional, in-person learning experience.
Online Modality: A standard modality option that is a generic representation for a fully online learning experience in which students can learn anytime and anywhere.
Online-Sync Modality: A standard modality option that is a more specific version of online, if applicable, represents an online learning experience that occurs in real-time at scheduled times.
Online-Async Modality: A standard modality option that is a more specific version of online, if applicable, represents an online learning experience with no scheduled times. Students complete the course work on their own schedules within the guidelines of the course.
Designation assigned to a course based on its Enrollment Ratio.
High: Courses are “high” if the Enrollment Ratio is greater than 85%.
Low: Courses are “low” if the Enrollment Ratio is less than 25%.
On Track: Courses are “on track” if the Enrollment Ratio is 25-85%.
Shows the waitlist total compared to the waitlist max capacity.
In the example of 7/20, there are 7 students who are on the waitlist and the waitlist has a max capacity of 20. Not all Student Information Systems have the concept of a waitlist capacity. If this occurs, then the waitlist total is only displayed.
