2 The Phases of DARS Course Matching and Movement Among Requirements and Sub- requirements

3 Three Basic Phases Match Phase – DARS matches and assigns the students courses to sub-requirements Adjust Phase – DARS moves courses from requirements/sub-requirements with extra courses to requirements that still need or want courses Limit Phase – DARS enforces limits specified in X- lines and sub-requirements

4 Order of Phases Match Phase (first) Adjust Phase (first or only) Limit Phase Adjust Phase (second, if active) Match Phase (second, if active)

5 Match Phase Each course is matched against each sub- requirement Matching courses are assigned to the first sub-requirement in each requirement group (single requirement or set of requirements with the same GRP1 or GRP2) May also be assigned to other sub- requirements due to REUSE

6 Match Phase Sub-requirements may be skipped – Inactive sub-requirements due to a system condition code setting – Second match phase sub-requirements, during the first match phase

7 Courses Assigned To First matching sub-requirement in a requirement with blank group codes First matching sub-requirement in the first requirement with a specific group code Any matching sub-requirement with REUSE

8 AssignC and AssignCX Condition Codes are assigned to courses assigned to that sub-requirement during the match phase Once assigned, a condition code is not removed when a course is adjusted away from the assigning sub-requirement AssignC AssignCX

9 RACTL, ACTL and ACTLX Condition Codes assignment that is dependent on the completion status of a sub- requirement or requirement is determined by the status at the end of the Match Phase ACTL ACTLX RACTLAssignC Requirement Sub-requirement

10 Adjust Phase Requirements that are not satisfied pull courses from sub-requirements that have extra courses Courses that are wanted adjust from the sub- requirements where they were originally assigned to the sub-requirements that need courses All adjustment is driven by which courses are needed elsewhere, and by which sub-requirements need courses

11 Courses Will Adjust From A satisfied requirement – If the course can be removed without making the requirement go from satisfied to unsatisfied An unsatisfied requirement, if removal of the course will not hurt 1.If course is above sub-requirements MAXHRS or MAXCT setting 2.If sub-requirement is complete and requirement is looking only for sub- requirement count

12 Courses Will Adjust From An unsatisfied requirement, but removal of the course will not hurt 3.Sub-requirement is not being used because of a USECT value 4.If sub-requirement is not complete but the only remaining courses needed are required courses, while extra courses are assigned to the sub-requirement

13 Courses Will Adjust From an unsatisfied member of an ORd sub- requirement set to another sub-requirement in the set – DARS tests each member of the set in order to attempt to complete one member of the set – Adjustment stops when a member of the set becomes complete – If no member is complete, each course will adjust to the last sub-requirement in the set to which it can be assigned

14 No Adjustment Into Residency Sub-requirements Optional Sub-requirements during the first adjustment phase, if second adjustment phase is used

15 Limit Phase 1.X-lines and Y-lines are processed in the order in which they appear Any added or modified by exception come first Those from requirements follow, in the order they occur in the degree program 2.Sub-requirement limits defined by MAXCT or MAXHRSCK are processed in the order of the sub-requirements

16 Two Match and Adjust Phases Match phase will occur twice if second match phase sub-requirements exist – First Match Phase happens before others – Each sub-requirement is processed only during one of the match phases – Second Match Phase after adjust and limit No adjustment into or out of second match phase sub- requirements No limits can be enforced on second match phase sub- requirements

17 Two Match and Adjust Phases Two Adjust phases will occur when COM.ADJUSTFLG = 2 – When two adjust phases, optional sub-requirements will not attempt to adjust courses during the first adjustment phase – First or only adjust phase occurs before limit phase – Second adjust phase occurs after limit phase

18 Second Adjust Phase Optional sub-requirements wait to adjust courses during the second adjust phase The hungry elective, as the last grouped requirement and with an optional sub- requirement, doesnt adjust courses until the end

19 Hungry Elective Grouped with all requirements checking for specific degree components Processed during second adjust phase, after limits and other adjustment has occurred

20 Second Match Phase Occurs only if second match phase sub-requirements exist (SEQCHECK field set to 2 on sub-requirements) Needed only if using ASSIGNC2 or ASSIGNM to assign condition codes

21 Second Match Phase Just like the first match phase, except only second match phase sub-requirements are processed No adjustment or limit is possible on second match phase sub-requirements
