  • If several groups are to be selected they can be worked with as one group or individual groups

If Students are to have a choice from multiple groups several groups can be added and worked with in one window or a single group can be worked with.

Once you have clicked [Build] you will have two options to help you create the Co-Curricular Activity choices

Mutually Exclusive

If a group of Activities are Created as mutually exclusive only one of the Activities in the group can be selected

This could be used if the activities clash in some way

Important; Please ensure you SAVE the information on a regular basis otherwise if your Web Browser times out you will loose the information.

To start creating the Choices select the Activities then click an Option

Tick the Activities (as per screen shot) that you wish to be grouped together and click [Mutually Exclusive]

Single Choice

Tick activities that are Single Choices and click [Single Choice] – Tick Activity Group to select or deselect all activities

 

 

Groups e.g. If several groups are selected at once, when you click Build, the Activities will be listed and can be identified by the Groups.

The groups can be selected individually or as mutually exclusive and linked as required

Continue until you have made your selections;

  • You can create links to other activities
  • If an activity is linked to another activity then both the activities must be selected

 

Example of the possibilities for Linking the activities:

  1. Mutually Exclusive:

e.g.Football  and Rugby are mutually exclusive therefore only one or the other can be selected

 

2. Compulsory:

e.g. Yoga is compulsory e.g. below

 

3. Optional to select an activity :

Badminton, Hockey, Ten Pin Bowling, Volley Ball (as per screen shot above)

 

Linking Activities – examples:

  1. Athletics is linked to Aerobics so if you select Athletics you must also select Aerobics

Aerobics is not linked so this activity can be selected without having to select Athletics

 

2. If Volleyball is selected then Basketball must also be selected

If Basketball is selected then Volleyball must also be selected

 

3. If Tennis is selected you would have to select Basketball because this is linked you would also have to select Volleyball

 

4. Swimming is compulsory

[Choice] will be numbered in the order they are selected

To link a activity – click   and select an activity from the list- click the link again to remove

A link will be added to the activity along with the name of the linked activity

Note:  Tick any Compulsory activities – if you tick one activity as being compulsive in a Mutually Exclusive group all the others activities will be ticked

Use the X to remove any activities, this will also remove a single activity from a Mutually Exclusive group
