Academic Program Worksheet Data Training
In order to construct your own queries using the Academic Planning Worksheet data in the Data Warehouse, you will need to understand Worksheet and Requirements data, and you must complete both Student Records System (SRS) training and an online course.
Requirements Builder (REQBUILD) is the system that provides schools with a way to define their requirements. It resides on the central administrative mainframe computer, and REQBUILD users must have an account to build requirements that will be used on worksheets. For people who will be querying the data, it is extremely helpful to understand how those requirements are built. There is a course set up through BlackBoard's CourseInfo on the Penn Courseweb site called "Degree Planning and Audit: Building Worksheets." To register for this course, contact the course instructor.
SRS Training is offered by the Office of the University Registrar.
The online Student Data course is a tutorial set up in the University's learning management system, KnowledgeLink.
To begin, log in to the KnowledgeLink site using your PennKey, and go to the Search box (see the menu on the left), and enter "Data Warehouse" then scroll down to the course called "Using the Student Data Collection in the Data Warehouse - ISC". Just click on the course title, make sure you are on the Enrollment tab, then click on "Start". This is a self-paced tutorial; you can exit and return as much as you wish. There are embedded quiz questions throughout that are there just for you to try. The final quiz at the end, however, is mandatory.
