Linked Events

Linked Event are a set of Events that are linked together to share documents and curricular mapping.

Enrollment Per Event

The purpose of this report is to help you find Events with strange enrollments. This can happen because someone has assigned Small Groups to one Event, or accidentally assigned Students from another Course to this Course.

  • Under most circumstances you will see the same basic numbers again and again, such as the total number of Students (large group Events) and the basic small group counts.
  • You need to look for enrollment numbers that look odd.

NOTE: This report is a sanity check to make sure that no obvious group assignment mistakes have been made.
