10 Attendance info is available on MABLE canned reports. We also have to query each distinct site.

63 List of current classes, plus hours per week.

64 Select any given class, and the checkboxes to the right will depict which weekdays the student is scheduled to attend.

65 There is also a pictorial weekly schedule display, in the lower half of the form. Here, the classes per period are depicted for every weekday.

66 The buttons above each weekday represent future functionality, whereby the administrator may add classes from the Master List above. Classes may also be removed.

67 Most of the fields on this form are relative to a specific, timely configuration. For instance, a student configuration changes when the schedule changes.

68 Each time a meaningful change occurs in MABLE, the system differentiates a new student configuration. This is true for PAI changes, Goal changes, etc.

69 Such configurations usually have a range of dates for which they are valid (ie, no changes between a range of dates).

70 STARS depicts these configurations in the middle of the Class Scheduling form. The user can easily see the dates (from current or most recent) each config is valid.

71 Configuration changes are depicted as coded letters and numbers, which may be decoded by selecting the help button.
