Load Student Schedules

From EDgearWiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

This loader will provide the user a way to manually load students to classes to create their schedule. It is very handy in new year scheduling in which a listed group of students will be directly scheduled into a section that is not going to move or be changed, such as Athletic PE.

How To

Selecting Students and Classes

  1. Check the box next to the desired student(s) names in the left section; then in the center, check the box next to the desired course(s).
  2. The user will notice that the course listings appear to be doubled for courses lasting two semesters or more.
  3. By default, the user will pick the first instance of the course and the second semester of the course will be automatically selected also. This is normal.
  4. If the user wants to schedule the student to only a single semester of the course, slide the scroll bar to the see the semesters offered, then deselect the row of the semester that is not needed.
  5. As the students and courses are selected, the user will notice that this information is shown on the right in the Schedule column.
  6. They will appear twice for a 2 semester course: once for semester 1, and again for semester 2. Again, this is normal.
  7. When the selecting of the students and courses is done, click the Create button at the lower left of the screen.
  8. This will schedule the students to the course(s). A confirmation message will appear.
  9. If the user wishes to schedule other students and courses, click the buttons labeled De-select MSchedule and De-select Schedules to clear the selections and start over.
  10. If the user made a mistake or edits need to be made, there is a way to unschedule the students from the class.
  11. With the students and courses still checked, click the “Undo” button. This will take the students out of the courses.
  12. NOTE that, if the user leaves this program and re-enters, the Undo button will not unschedule the students. (NO LONGER TRUE)
  13. Also NOTE that at the setup box there was a setting for “Save as Manual Scheduled”.
  14. If the user selected this option before scheduling students with this utility, the courses scheduled will remain if any subsequent automatic scheduling like Automatic Scheduler is performed as long as the "Reschedule Manually Scheduled Items" is not selected. In other words, the Automatic Scheduler will leave these courses in place and work to schedule other requests around these courses.
