  • 2.What does 'change filter' stand for?
    This option allows you to change the selection restrictions that are applied to the Teacher's Notebook lists of students. Using the appropriate filter, you can, for instance, limit the number of students selected to those who are repeating the course and then send them an e-mail message requesting them to enroll in a certain seminar group.

    After you select a filter(s), all the Teacher's Notebook applications will only work with the students meeting the selection criterion (criteria) you have chosen and perform all the operations with these only. Filters can be accessed for selection and browsing from the Teacher's Notebook panel.

  • 4.What is the identification string following every student's name good for?
    The student's identification string provides details concerning his/her studies and their status. Every student enrolls in one or more fields of study within his/her degree programme. Fields may also be further specified by specializations. For details concerning accredited degree programmes and accredited fields, please use the following path:

    Personal Administration Studies .. programmes and fields

    Here are two examples of identification string (the page only lists abbreviations for the sake of brevity):

    name faculty programme field (specialization) stage
    Bc. Sherin Abu Al Saudová, LF M-SZ ZDRV (PEOP) [roč 4]
    Bc. Jan Novák, FI M-SS VT [sem 7, roč 4] PřF:MA [roč 3]

    When enrolled in a field, the student is always at a certain stage (year, term, block, cycle). Provided he/she has enrolled in fields offered by different faculties, his/her studies are considered to be inter-faculty and the field abbreviations in his/her identification string also contain faculty identifiers.

    Here is what the individual abbreviations denote:

    Programme: B - Bachelor's degree programme, M - Master's degree programme, N - Master's degree programme (following the Bachelor's one), D - doctoral degree programme, R - advanced ('rigorózní­') programme, C - lifelong learning programme
    Study mode: The information pertaining to the study mode is listed at the end of identification string provided the mode is other than full-time. The following abbreviations are used: kombin. - combined, dist. - distance, celoživ. - lifelong learning
    Status of studies: ukonč. - studies terminated, abs. - studies completed, neakt. - studies interrupted

  • 5.Some students previously present on my Teacher's Notebook lists have disappeared from these. What's wrong?
    Students are allowed to cancel their course enrollment during the first few weeks of every term. Provided they do so, they disappear from the course lists. The same applies to those who have interrupted or dropped their studies. The latter, however, can be added to the lists by the owners of the s_vyuka right (using the appropriate filter).

  • 6.Is there any way I can browse detailed information regarding a student (e.g. his/her scores listed under his/her name in notebooks, his/her letters of excuse, etc.)?
    Yes, there is. You can do so using the Detailed information on a student reference.

    [1] displays detailed information on a student

    The application displays the following:

    • the student's photograph
    • the date on which the student registered for the course
    • the date on which he/she enrolled in the course
    • the seminar group he/she enrolled in
    • the student's scores recorded in individual notebooks created under the course
    • the examination dates on which the student reserved slots and when he/she did so
    • the information about whether he/she has submitted a letter of excuse for his/her absence from classes/examinations
    You can access this application several ways. One of them is by looking up the student using the application titled People. The student's personal page lists the My student section, where you can find the list of those of your courses that the student is or was enrolled in. Using the link Detailed information on the student, you can browse some further information related to the student and the course.

    [1] 'My student' section in the 'People' application

    An alternative to this is clicking on Detailed information on a student in the Teacher's Notebook panel, which displays the list of all the students enrolled in the currently selected course. To display the information on a particular student, click on his/her name.
