Along with being able to add prerequisites to a course item, you can now specify whether or not:
a. It is required for the completion of parent item
b. It should be included as part of parent item’s score
In the past, we had to work together to figure out the scoring and completion rules you wanted to have in place for your course. Now, you can do it all when administering the LMS. In the ‘Attempts and Scoring’ page of an item, we added a section titled ‘Parent Item’ where both of these options can be edited. Simply check the box near each statement and click on ‘save changes’.
This feature is particularly relevant if you’d like the course score to be reflecting a final assessment score. Another example would be if you want to exclude certain files from affecting the completion status of the course (e.g. additional resources).
We hope you find this update useful!
