Optimisation of the Planning of the Higher School Educational Process through Managing the Quality of the Term Schedule.
Buchvarov, S. I.; Ganashev, I. P.
This paper discusses the merits of developing a high school semester time-table, or schedule, as the final planning stage in the educational process. Such a schedule would provide a weekly breakdown list of all academic subjects, grade levels, teachers for each subject and grade, rooms, laboratories and other facilities, and resources, thereby coordinating the different educational and managerial aspects of the semester. It is noted that several different schedules may be designed by using a problem-solving computer program and translating the weekly breakdown list into numerical values. The priority given each value then decides the parameters of the semester schedule. It is argued that successful planning and operation of a semester schedule would result in a substantial increase in the quality of education. (DB)
