A key figure that does not refer to a performance index can contain the following parameters:
Calculation scale (academic scale)
Result scale (academic scale)
Output semantics of the key figure
Allowed input semantics of the key figure
When you calculate key figures, you require input values which comply with specific semantics rules. For example, if you want to calculate an average grade as a key figure, you must use grades as the input parameter. The output of this key figure is also a grade. Therefore, you must define the input and output semantics for each key figure.
The input and output semantics define the structure of the return value, which is composed of the following elements:
Grade (with a scale)
Value (with a unit)
Performance indices are key figures as well. However, they are special key figures which are calculated on the basis of academic work.
You do not have to create key figures for existing performance indices. You only have to create the key figures you need for the above applications.
The calculation of key figures for an auxiliary condition, such as number of credits or average grade, is based on academic work. In this case, you use a key figure that refers to a performance index.
You can use the Academic Records application to control your university’s assessment process from start to finish. With Academic Records you can:
Edit assessments (object type CE)
You can create assessments for a module or program (or a program stage, if required).
Edit scheduled assessments for the assessments you have created
Open, monitor and cancel assessment processes based on module bookings and assessment
processes based on programs When you open an assessment process for a student, you register this student for an assessment.
