Abstract

NOVOA-HERNANDEZ, Pavel. Evolutionary Multi-objective Optimization for Scheduling Professor Evaluations in Cuban Higher Education. Comp. y Sist. [online]. 2015, vol.19, n.2, pp.321-335. ISSN 1405-5546.  http://dx.doi.org/10.13053/CyS-19-2-2008.

In Cuba, university professors are often evaluated during the development of a class. Scheduling such evaluations along the academic semester is a common task of the head of the department, who must satisfy several criteria at the same time. Examples of these criteria are the presence of at least one tribunal member of the same academic unit, the presence of at least one tribunal member with equal docent category, availability and the utilization level of the tribunal members, among others. However, scheduling professor evaluations can become a complex task if several professors and evaluations are considered. Aiming at solving this problem, in the present work we propose a computational approach based on 1) modelling this task as a multi-objective optimization problem and 2) solving this problem by adapting a variant of a very well-known evolutionary algorithm, NSGA-II. The results of the performed computational experiments show that our proposal contributes to obtaining useful quality solutions.

Keywords : Professor evaluations scheduling; team building; evolutionary multi-objective optimization; NSGA-I.
