Student load (STULOAD)
|Part of||Student course session (StudentCourseSession)|
|Description||This field indicates the providers best academic judgement of the Full Time Equivalence (FTE) of the student for this StudentCourseSession.|
|Coverage||All StudentCourseSessions at providers in Scotland where StudentCourseSession.SCSENDDATE exists.|
This field records the FTE that the student completed during the StudentCourseSession.
Values can be recorded to one decimal place.
This cannot be exact in all cases and a strict pro-rata model is not expected. The aim is to give a better approximation than the use of arbitrary conversion factors.
|Quality Rules||Quality rules to follow|
|Reason required||To monitor intensity of study and to allow analysis by FTE rather than by headcount. Particularly significant for analysing load and allocations of funding for part-time students.|
