Give students what they need: a conflict-free schedule with the courses they need. Leverage the powerful algorithm of INFOSILEM Sectioner to efficiently assign students to course sections, taking into account requirements and preferences while respecting honours programs, athletic team commitments, recitation and tutorial options.
Treat large batches of new students and automatically assign them to the courses they are requesting. Requests are prioritized and categorized so that students get the courses they need and want.
Prioritize required and core course assignments and rank alternate choices for options and electives
INFOSILEM Sectioner has a powerful algorithm that automatically assigns students to scheduled course sections, conflict-free and in line with program specifications. If students’ first choices are not available in a reasonable schedule, leverage weighted alternative choices to ensure complete assignment.
Optimize seat utilization filling sections in a balanced manner while considering any registration or weekly credit-hour maximums
Course supply and student demand analysis informs users if there are any enrolment capacity issues in the schedule. Modify section sizes or add/remove sections to align the supply with the demand. Identify and react to any issues early in the process.
Improve student graduation rates while maximizing student satisfaction, and bolstering retention rates.
After an initial load of student request data, refresh the schedules as requests come in while retaining earlier assignments.
Transfer data between systems: INFOSILEM Sectioner uses program definitions to ensure that student choices respect the program requirements, and once assignment is complete the results can be published to external systems.
Make changes to the schedule and re-run the algorithm as needed to see the impact of those changes on the assignment results.
