Activities: Fair Allocation
In the area of schools or universities, there are often allocation problems, where a group of pupils or students needs to be assigned to a bunch of resources. These resources may be study groups, thesis topics, or seminar slots.
Therefore often techniques as first come first serve are used, which is not seldom perceived as unfair by the students.
To reach a high acceptance for the distribution technique is module offers the students the possibility to rate the possible choices according to their preferences. For this purpose the module supports multiple different rating strategies (e.g. Yes-No, Order, Points, Lickert-scale).
After a predefined time period for the users to hand in their preferences, the distribution can be started. Here, an algorithm solves the distribution problem by maximizing the overall satisfaction.
- Choices have maximum sizes
- After the automated distribution, the allocations can be changed manually (including students with no rating)
- The students can be notifyed about their allocation via e-mail
