Examples of Cross-Listing and Cross Section Linking Interaction

Cross-listing and Linking of Courses

The following tested and the expected behavior has been confirmed.

Scenarios 1-4: Cross-listing after course section linking (CSL)
Scenario 1

  1. Targeted section of a cross-list is a master linked section

    • X is the master section of a linked section
    • Y is linked to X
    • Z is linked to X
    • THEN A is cross-listed to X
    • Correct Results in Schoology:

      • A does not exist
      • SIS enrollments for A are in X
      • When working in X, enrollments for A are shown whenever enrollments for X are shown
      • Grade pass back will send grades and materials to section A for section A enrollments

  2. Remove linked child section from cross-listed linked section (child section is not target of a cross-list)
    • Unlink Y from X
    • Correct Results in Schoology:
      • A does not exist
      • SIS enrollments for A are in X
      • When working in X, enrollments for A are shown whenever enrollments for X are shown
      • Grade pass back will send grades and materials to section A for section A enrollments
      • Y is a separate section, not linked to X, and no enrollments for A can be seen in Y

Scenario 2

  1. Targeted section of a cross-list is a child linked section

    • X is the master section of a linked section
    • Y is linked to X
    • Z is linked to X
    • THEN A is cross-listed to Y
    • Correct Results in Schoology:

      • A does not exist
      • SIS enrollments for A are in Y
      • When working in X, enrollments for A are shown whenever enrollments for Y are shown
      • Grade pass back will send grades and materials to section A for section A enrollments

  2. Remove linked child section from cross-listed linked section - child section is target of a cross-list
    • Unlink Y from X
    • Correct Results in Schoology:
      • A does not exist
      • Y is a separate section, not linked to X
      • Enrollments for A can be seen in Y
      • SIS enrollments for A are not in X
      • Grade pass back will send grades and materials to section A for section A enrollments

Scenario 3

  1. Child section of a cross-list is a master linked section
    • X is the master section of a linked section
    • Y is linked to X
    • Z is linked to X
    • THEN X is cross-listed to stand alone section A (A is the target section)
    • Correct Results in Schoology (this behavior is pending):
      • A cross-listing row that crosslists a master section of a linked section should fail with message: You cannot cross-list a linked section.

Scenario 4

  1. Child section of a cross-list is a child linked section.
    • X is the master section of a linked section
    • Y is linked to X
    • Z is linked to X
    • THEN Y is cross-listed to stand alone section A (A is the target section)
    • Correct Results in Schoology (this behavior is pending):
      • A cross-listing row that crosslists a child section of a linked section should fail with message: You cannot cross-list a linked section.

Scenarios 5-8: Cross section linking after cross-listing

Scenario 5

  1. Targeted section of a cross-list is a master linked section

    • A is cross-listed to X
    • THEN linking of sections is done
      • X is the master section of a linked section
      • Y is linked to X
      • Z is linked to X
    • Correct Results in Schoology:

      • A does not exist
      • SIS enrollments for A are in X
      • When working in X, enrollments for A are shown whenever enrollments for X are shown
      • Y exist in Schoology and is linked to X
      • Z exist in Schoology and is linked to X
      • Grade pass back will send grades and materials to section A for section A enrollments

  2. Unmap a cross-listing between a section and a master section of a linked section
    • Unmap the cross-listing from A from X
    • Correct Results in Schoology:

      • A does not exist
      • Enrollment for A are not in X
      • Enrollments for X are in X
      • Y exist in Schoology and is linked to X
      • Z exist in Schoology and is linked to X

    • Provision section A
      • Correct Results in Schoology
      • A exists in Schoology

    • Provision enrollments for A
      • Correct Results in Schoology
      • Enrollments for A are in section A

Scenario 6

  1. Targeted section of a cross-list is a child linked section
    • A is cross-listed to Y
    • THEN linking of sections is done
      • X is the master section of a linked section
      • Y is linked to X
      • Z is linked to X
    • Correct Results in Schoology:
      • A does not exist
      • SIS enrollments for A are in X, but are shown as Y enrollments
      • When working in X, enrollments for A are shown whenever enrollments for Y are shown
      • Y exist in Schoology and is linked to X
      • Z exist in Schoology and is linked to X
      • Grade pass back will send grades and materials to section A for section A enrollments
  2. Unmap a cross listing between a section and a child section of a linked section
      • Unmap cross-list A from Y
      • Correct Results in Schoology:
        • A does not exist
        • Enrollment for A are not in X
        • Enrollments for X are in X
        • Enrollments for Y show in X
        • Y exist in Schoology and is linked to X
        • Z exist in Schoology and is linked to X
      • Provision section A
        • Correct Results in Schoology:
          • A exists in Schoology
      • Provision enrollments for A
        • Correct Results in Schoology:
          • Enrollments for A are in section A

Scenario 7–The following scenario is not possible, because step 1.1 is impossible to complete.

  1. Targeted section of a cross-list is a child linked section
    • X is cross-listed to Y
    • THEN linking of sections is done
      • X is the master section of a linked section (this is not possible because they will never be able to choose Y to link, because it does not exist in Schoology)
      • Y is linked to X
      • Z is linked to X

Scenario 8–The following scenario is not possible, because step 1.2 is impossible to complete.

  • Cross-listed section of a cross-list is a child-linked section
      • Y is cross-listed to A
      • THEN linking of sections is done:

        • X is the master section of a linked section
        • Y is linked to X (this is not possible because they will never be able to choose Y to link, because it does not exist in Schoology)
        • Z is linked to X
