- Sorting by addition candidates will show quite a few of those because of the potential additions that are consistently filling at 95% or higher.
- Create a filter
- In the Report app under the “Reports” folder, open the Course Offering Index report. Under Term Details, select the link "Total Courses" for the term(s) you want to see.
You'll be able to see a breakdown of the overloaded, balanced, and underutilized courses. Clicking on the overloaded red bar will display only the overloaded courses. We encourage you to start with the addition candidates because those are courses that are growing or simply packed term over term!
A historical enrollment ratio of 95% or greater in the analysis terms is what indicates a top addition candidate. In the same way, historical enrollment of 70% or lower in the analysis terms is what indicates a top reduction candidate.
Align does not project which modality you should offer, it is only projecting how many seats you should offer. However, it will show you if one modality is filling more than another, which can help you decide how to offer the additional seats. You can also see how the sections are filling by modality in real-time using Monitor.
