Double period - block
Lessons will be scheduled in single periods unless specified otherwise. Enter double periods in the column Double pers. , if they are desired or permitted. Use this field to specify the distribution of double and single periods:
An entry of 1-1 indicates that the distribution spans from 1 to 1, i.e. the lesson should be scheduled in exactly one double period.
An entry of 0-1 means that a 2-period lesson can be scheduled in a double period, but it is not an absolute requirement (minimum 0, maximum 1 double period).
An entry of 1-2 means that a 4-period lesson can also be scheduled in one double period or two double periods. The timetable algorithm should decide which variant is better suited regarding the overall timetable perspective.
More than 2 periods scheduled consecutively are called a block of periods.
If you wish, for example, to schedule 3 periods consecutively, enter '3' in the column 'Block'.
If you wish to schedule a 6-period lesson in two blocks of 3, simply enter '3.3'.
