  Course Repeat Logic Enhancement for Some Courses

Additional References: PSSR-342942

As per the ministry guidelines, we have enhanced the course repeat function logic to better reflect the students' achievements in specific course pairs (GLS1O/GLE1O, BTT1O/BTT2O, HFN1O/HFN2O, HIF1O/HIF2O, BBI1O/BBI2O). Previously, both courses in each pair were displayed on the reports with credits earned, which was not in accordance with the guidelines. With this enhancement, only one credit will be earned for each course pair, and the other will be considered a repeat ensuring accurate representation of student achievement on the reports.

Changes Made:

  • The course repeat function logic has been updated to identify the specific course pairs mentioned above.

  • If a student has taken both 1O and 2O versions of a course from any of the pairs, only the course with the higher credit/mark is considered and the other is considered a repeat.

  • On the Ontario Student Transcript reports only one course is displayed with credits earned, the repeated course is no longer included. Both courses are printed on the Ontario Status Sheet report and an R note is displayed on the repeated course.

OnSIS Snapshot Report - Provide an Option to Rerun the Report

OnSIS Snapshot Report: Version 2.6

In this version, the report has been enhanced to include the ability to rerun snapshot for any selected count date on the report. This new functionality allows users to rerun count dates that were previously run or could not be run through the regular process.

 Important Considerations:

Please exercise caution when using this option as it is not reversible. Additionally, it is important to note that certain student data, such as gender and postal code, are not date-stamped. Therefore, the data collected during the rerun will reflect the data as of the rerun date, rather than the original count date. This may result in inaccurate OnSIS reporting.


OnSIS Snapshot Report - Report Validations Added

OnSIS Snapshot report: Version 2.6

A restriction is added to prevent the selection of conflicting report parameters while running the report. If the Repopulate OnSIS Independent Study work units option is selected then the Re-run Snapshot option cannot be selected and vice versa.


OnSIS Summer Report - STU_BRD_RES_STAT_TYPE Incorrectly Reported In Some Cases

OnSIS Summer School Submission: Version 8.2

OnSIS Summer, the board residence status was always reported from the latest school enrollment for cross-enrolled students when no snapshot data exists for the student, which in some cases is a future school enrolment. This issue has been resolved. The report now considers the latest school enrollment that falls within the same academic year as the CC enrollment. This ensures the board residence status information is based on the most relevant and up-to-date data.


Validation Added to the Diploma Certificate Requirements Met Date Field

Validation has been added where Diploma Certificate Requirements Met Date becomes a required field if Graduation School is selected.
