Astra Schedule offers the Scheduling Unit an opportunity to increase efficiency in final exam scheduling starting with fall 2013 exams. Historically, all final exams have been scheduled manually, one by one. It was a process that took two staff members more than one month to finish for the Twin Cities campus alone!
Now, with our ability to schedule exams using Astra Schedule, we will have the chance to increase our efficiency by scheduling the vast majority of final exams in a batch process, which takes less than one day to run. The only final exams that will need to be scheduled manually will be common exams and those that fill out the ASR 123 and ASR 163 forms. Way to go, Astra Schedule!
