Events can also take place with only one part of one or several classes. Use the "Student group" column in order to indicate this situation. If this column is not visible in your event window, click on "Grid adjustment" to show it.
A student group is a group of students attending a certain lesson. The student group is already generated when entering the lesson, and is always needed when a class is divided. For more information on "Student groups" reach the manual for timetable planning.
You have two options, if you want to create an event with student groups:
- You use an already existing student group which has been defined for a lesson.
- You use a new student group which you enter for the respective event.
Both variants are explained in the follwoing examples.
Events with an existing student group
The classes in the example below are taught together but separated by sex in sports. A student group has already been entered in the lesson.
On Wednesday afternoon, the girls who usually have sports, go to a football match with teacher Callas. This is the reason why the student group of the girls has been entered in the event.
By selecting this student group, a release is generated only for teacher Aristoteles because only his student group is absent. The sports lesson of teacher Rubens takes place as usually.
If you use the "Course scheduling" module, teachers are released when all students of their course take part in one or several events.
Event with an arbitraty student group
On Tuesday after period 5, teacher Callas visits the Museum of Natural History with interested student of her classes 3a and 3b. The students take part in this event voluntarily. This is the reason why a new student group has been entered only for this event.
If this event causes a clash with an already existing lesson, you are asked to give your okay.
If you confirm with "Yes", regular lessons for students who have not taken part in the event, are still taking place. If you click on "No", the respective teachers are released.
AS of Untis2019, both events and regular lessons are shown in the class timetable.
