A survey of school timetabling research

Nelishia Pillay
2013 Annals of Operations Research  
As a way forward this paper provides an overview of the research conducted in this domain, details of problem sets which are publicly available and proposes areas for further research in school timetabling  ...  Furthermore, there have been no comparative studies on the success of different methodologies on a variety of school timetabling problems.  ...  In cases where such studies have been performed, different methods are compared for a single school and not a variety of problems.  ...

Evolving solutions to the school timetabling problem

Rushil Raghavjee, Nelishia Pillay
2009 2009 World Congress on Nature & Biologically Inspired Computing (NaBIC)  
There has been a large amount of research into the development of automated systems for creating school timetables.  ...  The research presented in this paper forms part of work-in-progress aimed at evaluating genetic algorithms as a means of solving the school timetabling problem.  ...  The system was used to generate a feasible timetable for a Greek school. De Haan et al. [4] used a four-phase approach to construct a school timetable for a Dutch secondary school.  ...

Learning more by being taught less: a "time-for-self-study" theory explaining curricular effects on graduation rate and study duration

Henk G. Schmidt, Janke Cohen-Schotanus, Henk T. van der Molen, Ted A. W. Splinter, Jan Bulte, Rob Holdrinet, Herman J. M. van Rossum
2009 Higher Education  
In the proposed theory, time available for individual study is considered a major determinant of both study duration and graduation rate of students in a particular curriculum.  ...  To test this theory, we collected study duration and graduation rate information of all-almost 14,000 students-enrolling in eight Dutch medical schools between 1989 and 1998.  ...  In a recent study of Dutch medical education, study delay was negatively related to the final examination GPA in secondary education: The lower the GPA, the more time needed to complete medical education  ...
