Snapshot Date

These snapshot dates are used to calculate "Course Duration" and "Linkage Duration." “For 2016-17, Assessment Snapshot dates should align with the appropriate dates.

Linkage Start Date

The first day that both the teacher and student were reported as assigned to or enrolled in the course ("linked").

Linkage End Date

The last day that both the teacher and student were reported as assigned to or enrolled in the course ("linked").

Course Duration (hh:mm)

The length of the course in hours and minutes.

Enrollment Linkage Duration (hh:mm)

The amount of time that both the teacher and student were reported as assigned to or enrolled in the course ("linked"). Enrollment Linkage Duration will be less than the Course Duration for those teachers/students who were assigned to or enrolled in the course for only a part of the school year.

Attendance Linkage Duration (hh:mm)

The amount of time that the student actually attended the course while both the teacher and student were reported as "linked". Attendance Linkage Duration will be less than Enrollment Linkage Duration for students who are absent while enrolled in a course.

Linkage Duration Adjustment*

If a teacher's or student's actual assignment or enrollment in a course is only a percentage of the course's planned schedule, a linkage adjustment between 0 and 100% can be reported. For example, if a student is assigned to a course only three days a week (but the course meets five days a week), the Linkage Duration Adjustment would be 60%. If a teacher is assigned to a course only one day a week (but the course meets five days a week), the Linkage Duration Adjustment would be 20%.
