Outcomes Submissions Star Schema

The Submissions star schema provides submission level information about instrument submissions. "Submission level" means that this star schema only contains data about the person who was supposed to submit the instrument and whether they actually submitted it. The contents of the actual submission are not provided by this star schema.

ODS_SUBMISSIONS_FACT

ODS_SUBMISSIONS_FACT contains one record for each potential submission for any deployment. The word potential is used to indicate that there will be a submission record for each entity (survey, portfolio, artifact) that might come back as a result of a deployment. Some submission records will indicate that the submission was received (will have a non-null received_date) and some records will indicate that the submission was not received.

Fact Table

pk1 Unique Identifier.  
person_pk1 Identifies the ods_person_dim record for the person that sent this submission. Personal attributes such as gender or zip code.
deployment_pk1 Identifies the ods_deployment_dim record for the deployment that caused the survey or course evaluation being answered to be sent to the submitter. Deployment, or by the instrument being deployed. Only one instrument can be deployed at a time.
received_date The date this answer was submitted. Null indicates that this submission was never actually received. The system deployed an instrument but the receiver never submitted a response.  
instrument_pk1 Identifies the ods_instrument_dim record of the instrument that this submission is for.  
distr_list_pk1 Identifies the distribution list that caused this submitter to have this Evaluation Instrument deployed to them. Distribution List.
