Adaptive Release controls the release of content to users based on a set of rules created by the instructor. The rules may be related to availability, date and time, individual users, group membership, scores or attempts on any Grade Center item, calculated columns in Grade Center, or review status of an item in the course.
The following options are available:
Availability settings in a content item will override any Adaptive Release or Adaptive Release Advanced rules. First, make sure to REMOVE availability times from the general settings for the assignment or test or this will override Adaptive Release.
Basic adaptive release rules allow you to add and edit one rule for a single piece of content. This single rule may have multiple criteria. For example, the rule may require a student to meet both date criteria and review status criteria before the content is available. Advanced adaptive release rules can also be used to add multiple rules to a single piece of content.
Adaptive Release: Advanced allows you to add multiple rules to a single content item. If multiple rules are created, the content is visible to the user if any of the rules are met. Each rule may have multiple criteria. For example, one rule may allow users in Group A with a score above an 85 on a Test to view the content item. Another rule for the same item may allow users in Group B to view the same content item only after a specific date.
Rules that cannot be satisfied by any user will be noted because they will not provide any access to the specified content item.
To add a Date criteria to this rule, use the calendar and clock buttons to set the Display After and Display Until settings. Click Submit.
Membership criteria allow content to be displayed according to username and course Group. The Instructor may set up criteria that use one or both of these options; the Instructor may make this item available to a course Group, or the Instructor may make this item available to a course Group and other specific individuals.
Review Status criteria is used to release content based on the user’s review of a specific content item. For example, the Instructor may create criteria that makes Assignment 1 available only after students have marked homework #1 reviewed.
Instructors can view the details on an item for all users in a course, including information about whether the item is visible to the user and whether the user has marked the item as reviewed.
2. The check mark in the Reviewed column indicates the user has marked the item as reviewed.
