PSSR-261997CEDARS 21-22 Changes: Course Sequence Data Collection

The Courses, Sections, and Historical Grades setup pages are updated to include two new fields to collect course sequence information: "Sequence" and "Sequence Group"

  • Sequence: Used to designate the course or section is part of a sequence of classes that are typically scheduled together, and are expected to be taken in a particular order, and having the same state course code.
    • Example: A year-long Algebra 1 class that is either split into two separate S1 and S2 courses or is a single course split into two separate S1 and S2 sections.
  • Sequence Group: User-defined identifier unique to each set of sequential courses. This identifier is used to
    gather all courses part of the unique set.
    • Example: Algebra 1 S1 sections can be flagged with a sequence group of 'ALG1_S1' and Algebra 1 S2 sections flagged as 'ALG1_S2'

Note: For guidance from OSPI regarding Course Sequence, see pages 84-90 of the CEDARS 2021-2022 Reporting Guidance document.
