Introduction

   IUP has created a self-service option
    to display a web CAPP report to
    replace the SunGard SCT delivered
    report. This presentation will explain
    why we created this process and what
    was involved.

   Solution
   Issues
   Future Plans
   Summary
   Questions And Answers
What Is CAPP?

   Curriculum Advising and Program
    Planning - Degree Audit
   Degree Evaluation (Compliance)
   A comparison of a student’s
    coursework against a specific set of
    program requirements, including
    transfer credits, substitutions, waivers
    and in-progress coursework
What Is CAPP?

   Answers questions such as:
    – What are the requirements for the given
      program?
    – What courses has the student taken?
    – Which requirements have and have not
      been met?
What Is CAPP?

   Tool for advising students:
    – Within their current program
    – Who are contemplating changing their
      major, adding a minor, etc. (“what if”
      scenarios)
    – Simplify graduation clearance
Need For Web Report

   Problems with SCT delivered report:
    – Too long – 6-31 pages
    – Detail report too wide – had to scroll over
      to see entire report
    – Had to print landscape - did not look
      professional
Need For Web Report

   Web is only interface to CAPP for
    faculty, advisors, and students – they
    could run evaluations, but report was
    not useful
   Shorten SCT report?
    – Our director contacted SCT Product
      Manager
    – Communications broke down
Solution

   Created our own report
   Rolled out January 2005
   Utilized customized client reports
   Faculty feedback very positive
   CAPP utilized for other areas
    – PDE – state requirements
    – NCATE - accreditation
Solution

   Improvements/Enhancements:
    – Added SGASTDN information to report
    – Changed information text to give users
      directions/instructions
    – Groups were not used
       Shortened report tremendously
       They were not working anyway
Solution

   Replaced existing links
    – “Previous Evaluations” now “IUP Previous
      Evaluations”
    – “Current Enrollment” now “Your Current
      Program” and “Advisee Current Program”
      to avoid confusion
    – Used SQL to make this easier
Solution

Evaluation      SCT Report   IUP Report
Type
Undergraduate 23 pages       4 pages

UG w/ PA        31 pages     5 pages
Certification
Graduate        6 pages      2 pages
Issues

   Upgrade could present problems
    – Previous evaluations page uses SCT
      functions, information text, and logic
    – Major changes in CAPP could disrupt our
      report
    – Created in version 6.2, all right in 7.1
   Deans now want customized report for
    each department
Future Plans

   Roll out to students
    – February 2006
    – Currently enabled for faculty and advisors
    – Will only have to activate an SCT menu
      item
   Add major fields to student
    information
    – Want to see double majors
Summary

   Creating our own web CAPP report
    allowed us to expand upon SCT’s
    report while reducing the overall size
   The university community is very
    pleased with the new report, because
    it easily provides extremely helpful
    information
