Assembling courses

Copying courses


If you wish to add courses to an exam, click on the <Add course to exam> button, select one or more courses and confirm with <OK>. This will copy the selected courses to the exam and you will see the following information in each row:


Exam: how many students from each of the exam courses will be taking the exam.


Balance: how many students from each of the exam courses will not be taking the exam.


Total: how many students take this course in total.


Clashes: how many student clashes will occur in each of these courses. Details about clashes are displayed in the lower window section.







Note: Adding individual courses

If you add course to an exam one by one, i.e. if you repeat the process described above, only those courses will be displayed for selection that are not going to cause a student clash with the exam courses already chosen. This makes it very easy to put together courses for which exams can be written simultaneously.


Since clusters should always be free of clashes, there is an alternative way of adding all courses of a cluster to an exam using the <Selection> button (under 'Clusters'). Simply click on the <Add course to exam> button again if you wish to add more course to the exam.


Removing courses


You can remove courses from the exam by selecting one or more columns with an exam and then clicking on the <Remove course> button.


New exam


If you wish to clear the window in order to schedule a new exam and delete the previous entries you you can use the <Start scheduling> button.


Not all students


If not all students of courses involved in an exam are to take the exam, you must tell Untis which students (in which course) are to take the exam..


For this purpose you can use the course choice statistical code, which can be entered in the ' Student-course-choice 'or ' Course-student-choice ' windows. There you should enter a statistical code (e.g. 'w' for written) for all course choices where an exam will take place for the relevant student.


You can now use the 'Stat. code(s)' field in the 'Exam scheduling' window to indicate which students will be taking part in the exam by entering the appropriate statistical code. This means that only those students will be taken into account for whom the corresponding statistical code is defined in their course choices. You can leave the field empty if all students of the exam courses are to take the exam.



Warning: Single-letter statistical code

You can of course define more than one statistical code in a course selection. Please note that the statistical codes may only consist of one letter.
