  5. Create Book/Course Relationship

Book/course relationships are key to calculating the district's and each campus's eligibility numbers per ISBN, as well as enabling several course-dependent reports (within the District View and the Campus View). Example reports include "District Analysis of Need," "Campus Analysis of Need," "Class Roster Book Check," and "Class Roster with Bar Codes."

Best Practice: After assigning new and/or editing existing book/course relationships, push the relationships to the respective campuses approved for the ISBN. Review "Transfer Book-Course Relationships."

Additional Notes

"Eligibility" (a number the district uses to approve added materials requested from a campus) is calculated by the following equation:

(Campus Student % x Current enrollment number) + (Campus Teacher % x Current Teacher Enrollment Number) = ISBN eligibility

To edit campus book/course relationship percentages (used when calculating campus-specific eligibility counts), review "Transfer Book-Course Relationships."

Most districts choose student edition materials for students only. To only account for student enrollment eligibility, use zeroes in the "Teacher %" fields for student edition materials. In almost all cases, districts choose teacher edition materials for teachers only. To only account for teacher enrollment eligibility, use zeroes in the "Student %" fields for teacher edition materials.

To designate that every student/teacher enrolled is entitled to a copy of the ISBN (1:1 ratio), "100%" is entered into the respective campus percentage field. It is common to have a higher percentage for the district fields. This allows for district growth, special education copies, etc.

  • Review an ISBN's district-wide eligibility numbers in the "Textbooks Details" within the Inventory Tab under the "Textbook Needs” section. Reports have three "District Analysis of Needs" reports (current enrollment, max enrollment, and percentage forecast).
  • Review a campus's eligibility for an ISBN in "Find a Book" and/or the "Campuses Details" Eligibility Tab. The "Campus Analysis of Need” report is another option for reviewing a campus's eligibility.
  • Review current book/course relationships with the “Master Courses Listing” report.
  • Review a list of all courses assigned to a specific ISBN on the Textbooks page.
