Exam Scheduler User
Exam Scheduler is a software system that automatically
schedules the oral examinations for the Ph.D. students in the department
of Computer Science of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Each year about 30 students participate in the oral examinations. Faculty
members with expertise in various areas are selected and assigned to exam
sessions according to certain rules. These rules are described in the section
Backgroundof this manual. To find a schedule, this software must
receive input from students who plan to take in the exam and from faculty
members who have the potential of being examiners. After these data are
entered according to some rules, an operator, who is generally the examination
coordinator, will execute a program to find a schedule.
