Career Pathways Widget

The Career Pathways widget is visible on the student's Profile page located on the navigation tree under the Student Data | Profile node.

Students with a Career Pathway (CPW.CD) record will display the widget to User and Teacher type accounts who have read to Career Pathways (CPW), Student Classes (SEC), Transcripts (HIS) and Class Schedule History (CAR) tables.

The widget displays each course in a pathway and the individual history for that student. This information displays whether or not the students are currently scheduled or have transcript records in these particular courses. It will display the course title, number, and course Level (CCP.LVL) as defined within the Career Pathway Dashboard. The Grade, Credits completed, Year, and Term is pulled from the student's transcript. The Current Course column shows if the course is currently in the student's Class Schedule (SEC)

Any completer course (CCP.LVL = 03)  with a grade less than a "C-" will appear in red.

Any pathway course, regardless of its level, will appear in red if the student has earned zero (0) credits.
