To review program analysis for the selected course in more detail, click on the Program Analysis link.
The Analyzed Items section allows the institution to see the total number of students that have the selected course as a requirement and are eligible to complete the course in the analysis term. Also, this box displays the number of students who have this course as an absolute or 100% requirement. Program analysis understands that every student who is eligible to take a course may not actually register for the course, so the analysis uses probability calculations to determine the projected need from program analysis. The program analysis projected need reflects this number. As on the previous screens, the seats offered for the current term and the overall projected demand is listed for comparison.
Key Concepts:
Program Analysis determines a statistical probability or likelihood that a student will register for the selected course in the analysis term. In short, this probability is derived by applying an estimated student credit load to the number of courses that are helpful for the student to complete in the analysis term (also ensuring that the student is eligible to complete the course). If a student has few choices available to him/her, the probability will be higher for an individual course.
The requirement rating indicates the likelihood that a course will be taken at some point in an academic career. A course with a 100% requirement rating is an absolute requirement and must be taken in order to complete degree requirements. The probability calculation prioritizes courses with the highest requirement rating because students have fewer options to fulfill the requirement.
The Students by Probability range tab provides detailed information on the projected need, students analyzed, and students with 100% requirement rating within the selected probability range.
Students by Probability Column Descriptions:
•Probability Range – groupings of probability results to assist in analyzing student demand
•Projected Need – number of seats needed per probability range to meet student demand
•Students – number of students in this probability range that have the selected course as a requirement and are eligible to complete the course in the analysis term. Click on the hyperlink in the students column to access a students modal that offers more detail on the students in that probability band.
•100% Requirement – number of students in this probability range that have the selected course as an absolute requirement
The Students modal provides key information on the students included in the probability band. Information includes the student ID, name, program, completed credits, calculated probability, and requirement rating. Click on the hyperlink for the student ID to drill in to see the Platinum Analytics representation of the student’s degree audit and more information about the probability calculation.
Column Descriptions for the Students modal
•Student ID – ID number from the student information system. The hyperlink allows the user to drill in to see the Astra representation of the degree audit. 7.6 functionality will greatly enhance the userfriendliness of this screen.
•Name – Student name associated with the ID
•Program – Primary program associated with the student ID
•Completed Credits – total cumulative completed credits from academic history
•Probability – calculated likelihood that the student will register for the course in the analysis term. Based on taking eligible, helpful courses and applying the standard student credit load
•Requirement – likelihood that the student will need to take the course at any time during their program.
The Students by Requirement rating range tab provides detailed information on the projected need and students analyzed per requirement rating range.
Students by Requirement Column Descriptions:
•Requirement Rating Range – groupings of requirement rating results to assist in analyzing student demand
•Projected Need  number of seats needed per probability range to meet student demand
•Students – number of students in this requirement rating range that have the selected course as a requirement and are eligible to complete the course in the analysis term. Click on the hyperlink in the Students column to access a Students modal that offers more detail on the students in that probability band.
NOTE: The Sections modal described in the Students by Probability section can also be activated from the Students by Requirement tab.
The Students by Program tab provides detailed information on the projected need and students analyzed per program (including program description).
Students by Requirement Column Descriptions:
•Program – the program information on the student records from the student information system
•Description – the description of the program code
•Projected Need  number of seats needed per program to meet student demand
•Students – number of students in this program that have the selected course as a requirement and are eligible to complete the course in the analysis term. Click on the hyperlink in the students column to access a students modal that offers more detail on the students in that probability band.
NOTE: The sections modal can be accessed from the hyperlink in the students column.
The Students by Major tab provides detailed information on the projected need and students analyzed per program (including program description).
Students by Major Column Descriptions:
•Major – the primary major information on the student records from the student information system
•Description – the description of the program code
•Projected Need  number of seats needed per program to meet student demand
•Students – number of students in this program that have the selected course as a requirement and are eligible to complete the course in the analysis term. Click on the hyperlink in the Students column to access a Students modal that offers more detail on the students in that probability band.
NOTE: The Students modal can be accessed from the hyperlink in the students column.
