When creating a group there are three ways that you can do so
- According to Due Date – SchoolMate will create as many lessons on as many days as required between two dates.
- According to Number of Hours – The system will create the exact number of total hours required
- According to Number of Lessons – The system is not concerned about the amount of hours of teaching just that the group has the correct number of lessons
When you make changes to the number of hours and lessons planned for a group, you are asked if you want to generate lessons to bring the number of hours or lessons to the expected amount.
Groups which do not have the number of hours and lessons expected by the system are shown on the Main Page under Groups to Regenerate. You can ask the system to correct the imbalance for all groups or for individual groups.
Where can I see what is wrong with a group that needs to be regenerated?
If you go to the lesson card for the group, at the bottom you will see an explanation. You can then correct the imbalance by adding or deleting a lesson as appropriate
Teachers can also cause discrepancies between the number of planned and actual lessons and hours.They have permission to manage their schedules if this permission is switched on:
These permissions are controlled from School Admin – Settings – Basic Settings – System Configuration
