In this document you will learn about:
Adaptive release allows an instructor to create custom learning paths through course content and activities. Content items, discussions, tests, assignments, or other activities can be released to students based on a set of criteria including: date and time, specific users, group membership, institution role, grades or attempts on a particular test or assignment, or review status of another item in the course.
For example, an adaptive release rule can be creative to require students to attempt a formative assessment activity before the summative assessment activity becomes available. Adaptive Release can also be used to make an item available to some students but not others based on predetermined dates of availability. This is useful if a student will be travelling during an exam period and must attempt the exam earlier or later than the general class.
Creating an adaptive release rule
Adaptive Release Date rules are set the same way item availability dates are set. Simply choose the beginning and end dates.
The membership option limits the visibility of an item to specific users.
The grade criteria requires that a user earn a score or make an attempt on an assignment or test before gaining access to another item. For instance, an adaptive release rule can require a student to earn a passing score on a practice quiz before being able to take the mid-term exam.
The Review Status criteria requires users to mark a prerequisite item as reviewed before viewing the current item.
Note: To verify the visibility of a content item, click the options button to the right of the item, then choose User Progress on the drop-menu. Users with an “open eye” graphic meet all adaptive release criteria, allowing these users to see and interact with the item. The item is unavailable to users with a red line covering the eye.
