Use Case 10


  • A common analysis asked of the database will be to return longitudinal data. Many faculty and administrators are interested in tracking student progress over time.


  • The database must store data from multiple courses over time.
  • The database must link student data over time.

Basic Course of Events

  • A faculty member will query for student data (course, assessment or assessment item) across multiple semesters.
  • The database will return ALL data for that student (or multiple students) -- i.e., each semesters worth of data will be returned.
  • Should a faculty member want to add additional data in subsequent semesters or years, they will have to perform the search again and repeat their analysis - there will be no way to match students across queries.
