Value calculation and multi-week timetable

previous  Top  next

The multi-week timetable module enables you to put date limits on lessons in a variety of ways. This has a considerable effect on value calculation, as the examples on the following pages demonstrate.

 

 

Warning: Calculation

Value calculation is relevant at a time when no lesson scheduling has taken place (e.g. when assigning subjects). Calculations use the number of weeks in which lessons can generally be scheduled, i.e. all weeks in which lessons can take place on at least one day. It is of no importance how many school-free days occur in such a week.

 

The following methods of putting time limits on lessons are discussed:

 

Date time limitations

Lesson groups

Terms

 

 

Note: 2015/2016 school year

All the following examples were calculated for the 2015/2016 school year. For time limitations the turn of the year can have major consequences. A time limitation that in one school year lasts from Monday to Friday can in the next school year - if the 'from' and 'to' dates remain the same - last for example from Friday to Tuesday. Value calculation would calculate in the first case with one week and in the second case with two. This would result in different values for different school years.
