ok found :) thanks very much Liviu :)
I'm going to try that tomorrow :)

For the while I created a 'virtual teacher' per class and topic . For example, If I've a classname 21A with the topic english ; I created a teacher 21A-AN. This teacher is included in every english exam of the 21A class. Do you thik this can be usefull of the constraint you said would be enough ?

Thanks very much for your help :)

Tips and Tricks / Planning oral exams (new constraints)
October 28, 2020, 04:06:57 PM
Hello all,

I have to planify some oral exams for your students. According to the fact that there's only 1 student per exam at the same time ; I dont use the students options.

We have 150 students and each student will have 4 exams. So I created 600 activities (150 x 4) and each activity is linked to 1 student (the name of the student is included into the activity's name).

The constraints I have here are about the teachers.

For a given exam of a given class (let's say English in a class of 18 students), the teacher will have to pass 18 English exams. The problem is that these 18 English exams have to be contiguous. But that can start on the middle of an afternoon and finished the next day for example ; or being in 2 mornings but in contiguous days. The only thing is no gap in a given day and no gab between days.

I was able to say that a teacher  as no gap in a day but I can't say no gap in the days ... has someone an idea ?
Thanks to all for your help

With the first version you deliveded, we added some more constraints and we could create a complete timetable :) This is awesome !!
Finally, we printed out one page for each student with their times of attendance

All the team here says Thank you very very much for your great help  ;D

here's the final result :)

Hello Liviu,

Wow it would be great  ! Yes,
the only problem we have, I apologize for that, is a time constraint. We have to send today the postal letters to the students ...

So let me know if you think we can do it.
And of course we want to pay for that ...

Thanks so much for your help :)

Yes, I tried to add this constaint (1 gap between room change) but this didn't solved my problem because they usually stay in the same room ...

Hello Liviu,

I'm going to try explaining my purpose  :

An exam lasts 15 minutes and there is no break between exams.
So teachers do 3 exams followed by a 15 minute break to discuss and mark.
For this reason, we cannot, for example, put 2 exams in the same class and then change teachers directly. The change of teacher must be done during a break.
This is valid for the French and German exams. For the maths exams, there are 4 sessions followed by 1 break session.

let me know if this is a litlle bit more clear with that esplanation :)

Thanks very much for your help
Kind Regards
Arnaud

Hello Liviu,

thanks very very much :)

Finally, I used mine because the following constraing was needed : we can not split a group of 3  activities between teachers in the same room.

I'll have to dig your solution because I think it's better than mine ...

here's my final solution, not perfect  - some things had to change manually but  I hope to prepear a good configuration for next year :)

Please confirm: you have 8 rooms (F203-F212), one day per week (Mecredi), and 30 hour per day (08:00-16:30). And 4*3 teacher groups (which can be considered each one a single teacher)?
-> yes, a teacher's group can be considered as a single teacher
-> yes right, but 2 rooms are for french, 2 rooms for german, 2 rooms for mathematics 1 room for english and 1 room is free if needed

Please confirm: between 12:15 and 13:30 there are 5 free slots of break?
-> yes, no exams here

PS: You can use the latest FET official, not your custom version. I added room changes constraints in the official FET a long time ago.
ok, i'll change, thanks

the constraints I still have are : every teacher's group has to make 3 exam (for french and german) ; 4 examns for mathematics and then has 1 gap break
