Percentage factor (yearly value)

previous  Top  next

Some schools are not so interested in how many periods a teacher takes but in the proportion of the planned lessons taught.


You can enter the value corresponding to a teacher's full teaching commitment, i.e. 100%, in the field 'Yearly value (100%)' on the 'Value calculation' tab under 'Start | Settings | Miscellaneous'. This value is only used when the 'Yearly values' box has also been checked.


The lessons window now no longer displays the current yearly value; instead it displays the percentage of the current teaching compared with the yearly value.


You can easily see from the totals line whether a teacher is underemployed or overemployed



Note: Totals line

You can display the totals line by right-clicking on the table heading in the lessons window.



Example: Percentage factor (yearly value)



Teacher Newton achieves a yearly value of 1118.0 with the lessons he takes.





If you now specify a yearly value of e.g. 930, you will see that the total number of lessons for Newton is now 114.4. This would mean that he would be teaching 14.4 % more than called for by his full teaching commitment.







Part-time teachers


If you now enter the teaching commitment as a percentage in the 'Target/year' field under 'Teachers | Master Data' (a full-time teacher commitment corresponds to 100%), the 'Actual-plan' entry (the difference between the actual and the desired value) will be updated.


In some Scandinavian countries it is usual to employ part-time teachers on the basis of a percentage of a full teaching commitment. The figure on the following page shows teacher Andersen defined as a part-time teacher with 20% commitment and teachers Gauss and Nobel with 50% commitments. The yearly percentage factor makes it possible to see at a glance what percentage of the target workload has been assigned.
