Representing Grade Structures
Grades can have different levels of complexity, which need to be represented in the overall structure of the grade.
In its simplest form, a grade can be a single character, or number, in a logical sequence. For example:
By adding a second segment to the grade name, you can identify sub-grades, such as:
A more complex structure could be used to distinguish grades for different staff groups, such as:
- grades A.1, A.2, A.3, and A.4
- Manual.A.1, Manual.A.2, and Manual.G.1
In this example, there are three segments in the grade name. A grade is the combination of segments you define. You set up the segments and their valid values using the Grade Name Key Flexfield. Normally this is done by the system administrator.
- Clerical.C.1 and Clerical.C.2
