"The guidance personnel in a high school are often burdened with the duty of hand scheduling the student's courses. Using the computer as a sub-optimizing tool in the registration of students, however, can cut scheduling time dramatically and relieve the guidance department of an onerous chore. The technique described in this investigation uses a conflict matrix that schedules the student's request and keeps the class load level within the course sections. A search of the schedule array for each course request may uncover a conflict. If no conflict occurs the course is scheduled and the remaining courses for this student are examined in the same way. If a conflict does occur, a back-tracking procedure reconsiders this partially completed schedule. The system was implemented on an SK IBM 1130 System at Waynesville Senior High School, Waynesville, Missouri sequences"--Abstract, page ii.
