There are two main ways of combining all of the networks into one -
either by intersecting, as a product, all the sets of edges to find
those links in common - or forming a union, as a sum, of them all. This
is relatively straight forward in Sociometrica Visualyzer
(http://mdlogix.com/visualyzer.htm). After importing, each is performed
with a single logical reasoning operation. However, each network must
have a unique name - e.g. 'is_acquainted_with_according_to_paul'.
If there's time, a more entertaining solution could be pairwise
combinations to find agreements or disagreements between two students.
Hope this helps.
