Puzzling

Puzzling

Colleges choose rooms for puzzling needs in Spring 2016 for the Spring 2017 build and beyond, and only revisited upon request. The Dean’s Office in each College will work with departments/programs to allocate classrooms for puzzling.

Puzzles are due to Academic Scheduling by departments a week prior to the schedule build deadline for each semester.

Requirements for puzzled rooms:

  • Minimum 48 hours, and
  • Minimum 75% occupancy, and
  • Minimum hours*occupancy product of 40 (50x0.8), and
    • Examples:
      Hrs/Wk   Avg Enrl Cap
      48 83.3%
      49 81.6%
      50 80.0%
      51 78.4%
      52 76.9%
      53 75.5%
  • Room characteristics must be needed by most courses in puzzle

If a submission fails to meet the criteria above, the department is given one business day to resolve error(s). If errors are not resolved, the room is released and the courses in it are not puzzled.

Submissions for puzzling specific rooms other than the ones assigned are allowed, are due also one week prior to the schedule build deadline, and must meet the same criteria as any other puzzle. These are additional room puzzle requests not guaranteed and preference is given to rooms with the highest hours*occupancy product - second and third room choices are acceptable and can be indicated upon submission. A decision on whether or not such a submitted room has been accepted will be communicated to the College/Department no later than 2 businesses days after the submission deadline.

All non-puzzled courses go through the current optimizer process.

Puzzling Information

  1. Room Chart for Puzzling - Please use new worksheet on same document for each room puzzled.
  2. Puzzled rooms must adequately meet, but not exceed, capacity
    (i.e. Classes of 25 or 61, cannot meet in a 60 capacity room)
    Do not go under 70% of room capacity and try to stay as close to 100% as possible.
    NEVER go over 100% of room capacity.
  3. Classroom Capacity and Room Features Information are available on 25Live
    Use location tab and search.
  4. Try to schedule professors with back-to-back classes into the same room
    Sorting a query by professors is helpful for this process.
  5. Approved Course Meeting Times
    Unless you have approval from Academic Scheduling, you must use approved class meeting times for all classes.
