In the reports available from Campus Labs, cross-listed sections are combined and treated as one section. The results for individual cross-listed sections are not available. This includes standard summary reports, detailed reports, and comments, as well as custom reports. In the Web-based system, instructors are not allowed to view the results for a particular section unless three or more responses have been completed. When sections are cross-listed, only the total number of respondents is considered. Since the number of respondents in the individual sections is not considered, the system can't determine if instructors should be allowed to view the results.
If cross-listed sections represent two or more different courses, such as SPED 3175-080 and SPED 5175-080, the instructor may receive PDF reports for each section in e-mail. The combined results for the cross-listed sections will be the same in all reports, but the course results will be different. For example, one set of reports will include the results for all sections of the SPED 3175 course, while the other set of reports will include the results for all sections of the SPED 5175 course. The program, department, and college results may also be different, depending on the sections that are cross-listed. In addition, the instructor may receive multiple PDF files containing comments for the cross-listed sections. Since the comments are combined, the files are nearly identical.
Unlike the PDF reports distributed in e-mail, only one set of Web-based reports is available for cross-listed sections, even if the sections represent two or more different courses. The combined results for the cross-listed sections are included in the reports, along with the results for one of the courses. Instructors can't select a different course to be displayed in the Web-based reports.
Since cross-listed sections are combined, but the sections may represent different courses, the number of respondents or sample size for the section may actually be higher than the number of respondents for the course. This is common when a course has only one section or the number of respondents in other sections of the course is very low. The section could also have more respondents than the program, department, or college, although this is less likely.
