A teacher’s workload is not restricted just to teaching - it includes other duties, e.g. school management, supervision of teaching materials, subject mentoring, library administration etc. Such duties can be taken into account by creating reductions.
You must first define reasons for reductions via the menu 'Reductions' on the 'Module' tab.
The figure below shows the reduction reasons from file Demo2.gpn.
Reductions themselves are entered in the 'Modules | Value calculation | Reductions' window.
The figure shows the reductions for teacher Hugo. For his mentoring duty as class teacher ('CTe') he is credited with 2,000 value units (if you work without value calculation, the number of periods for the week are used). He is also credited with 1,000 value units for supervision of the physics collection (reduction reason:PhS).
If you wish to display the reductions for individual teachers (as is the case in the figure) using the corresponding selection list, you will see how many value units have already been allocated to the teacher.
For teacher Hugo, 3,000 value units in the form of reductions and 23,591 value units of lessons have been assigned. This results in a total of 26,591 value units. He is thus 1,591 value units over his weekly target of 25.000.
Using drag & drop with teachers and reduction reasons
You can use drag & drop to assign one reduction reason (e.g. mentoring) to several teachers by using the Element-Rollup. To do this, use <CTRL>+click to select the respective teachers and drag them into the reduction reasons window.
In the example, several teachers are assigned a reduction for mentoring as class teachers (CTe').
You will now find all the selected teachers under 'CTe' and you can enter values for them.
Conversely, several reduction reasons can be assigned to one teacher.
