Lesson matrix short description

Lesson matrix short description You can follow the example below yourself using the Demo2.gpn file.


In the upper part of the window you can set which master data element you wish to display in the rows, columns and the individual cells.




n the example below, the rows indicate the subject, the columns the classes and in the cells you can find the teacher and the weekly periods. In this way it is possible to recognise at a glance that teacher Hugo has two periods of 'GEc' with classes 1a, 1b, 2b and 2b.


Clicking on a cell in the matrix displays the corresponding lesson in the details window at the bottom of the screen.





Changes can be made to the subject allocation in the details window of the lesson matrix.


Couplings are highlighted in the lesson matrix. All those cells with elements of the coupling lesson are displayed with a blue border, as you can see in the figure with the example of teacher Hugo’s geography lesson.


As in the timetable, couplings may also be marked with a full stop. To do this, click on the <Settings> button in the matrix and check the 'Mark couplings' option.


Several units forming one lesson


The lesson list ('L-no./per') in the upper section of the window displays the lesson number followed by the number of periods for a selected cell. If there are several entries here this means that the lesson is divided into several units. In the current example, this would be the case for teacher Hugo's German lesson in class 4. Four of the six periods are part of lesson number 61 while the remaining two are part of lesson 72.


By clicking on the relevant row in the lesson list you will see in the details window that teacher Hugo takes lesson 61 on his own while a coupling with English exists for lesson 72 with teacher Cervantes.









You can limit the entries in the matrix to those elements that interest you by marking one of the filter selection fields. For example, in the figure below the filter was set for the subject 'GE' (the subjects are displayed in the rows). This results in only those columns being displayed where the cell for subject 'GE' is not empty. This means that only those teachers are displayed who actually teach German.







This function can of course be used in the same way for column elements. When filtering cells, the display is reduced to just those cells containing the relevant element.


Highlight suggestions
