When creating a master schedule, it is important for administrators and guidance counselors to assess its effectiveness. They can do this by using jmc's "Student Conflicts" report, which allows them to view the percentage of students with or without scheduling conflicts. By making adjustments based on this report, schedulers can aim to reach the goal of having 80% of students without conflicts in their schedules, whether they are using the Scheduling Aid or doing it manually.
To run the Student Conflicts report in jmc Office, go to Schedules > Develop > Student Conflicts.
Step One: Select a radio button from the "Students" box to narrow the range of students listed in the report "By Grade" or for specific "Selected Students".
Step Two: Select a radio button from the "Timeframe" box to view conflicts for the entire year or for specific terms.
Step Three (optional): Place a checkmark in the "Require" checkbox(es) to list student conflicts that meet the listed parameters.
Step Four: Choose the appropriate radio button in the "Include" box to include one of the following in the report:
Conflicting Courses: a list of courses in conflict
All Courses: all courses a student is registered for along with the courses in conflict
Summary Only: a quick view of the percentage of each grade level that could be scheduled into all requested courses without conflict at the time of the report
Step Five: Click the "Show Report" button to preview the requested report.
