Class Assignment

Screen Description

The Class Assignment screen provides interface for making changes to the current time and room assignment of a class. The changes can be made here  when no timetable is loaded (as opposed to the screens in the Solver section) since this screen only works with available times/rooms and does not provide suggestions that would include suggested changes of the assignment of other classes. The screen is accessible from the Class Detail screen in case the department for this class has a committed solution (and no other solution is selected or loaded into the solver).

Class Assignment


The first section of the screen provides an overview of the class-related information.

New Assignment(s)

A list of draft assignments that have been made through this screen. The new assignments are not executed until the Assign button is clicked. To remove an assignment from the list of new assignments, click on the trash bin at the beginning of the line.

Student Conflicts

A list of student conflicts caused by new assignments.

Available Times

A list of times available for the class that meet the restrictions on required time patterns. Time preferences are color coded in the text color of the times. To select a new time assignment for a class, click on the time.

Available Rooms

A list of available rooms for the class. This section is displayed only when time for a class has been selected. “( selected size: X of Y )” next to the section header means that the rooms selected so far have a total of X seats available while the minimum required room capacity is Y.

Click Apply to apply changes to the list of rooms.

Click on a room from the list of available rooms to tentatively assign it to the class (and add the assignment to the New Assignment(s) section where it can be confirmed or removed).
