Percentage factor (yearly value) 
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 rightclicking 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.
Parttime teachers
If you now enter the teaching commitment as a percentage in the 'Target/year' field under 'Teachers  Master Data' (a fulltime teacher commitment corresponds to 100%), the 'Actualplan' entry (the difference between the actual and the desired value) will be updated.
In some Scandinavian countries it is usual to employ parttime teachers on the basis of a percentage of a full teaching commitment. The figure on the following page shows teacher Andersen defined as a parttime 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.
