Special needs

Seating plan

  1. On the first one (the sheet is labelled “Liste”), you will find a list of your students. For each student, a random number is allocated. Using Filters, you can change the order of the names so they are mixed up. To assign a random number use this function: =RAND() (it returns a random number between 0 inclusive and 1 exclusive).
  2. On the second one (“Tables”), you have a simple sitting plan with only numbers.
  3. Finally, on the third one (“Plan”), you have the same sitting plan but (and this is where the magic happens) but instead of numbers, you have a function using INDEX and MATCH. It places random students!
