NOTE: this feature is not available in the Business&ITCenter21 Starter Package. 

Being able to limit what your students have access to and when can help in any number of ways. The Student Pacing features allow you to do just that!

1. Require students to complete all lessons in a unit before accessing quizzes 

This feature is great if you want to ensure that individual students complete all of the lesson curricula in a unit before accessing the unit quizzes. If needed, you can open the quizzes for individual students even while this feature is turned on.

Something to keep in mind: Blocking the students from taking assessments before all the lessons in the unit are complete only applies to the unit quizzes. It does NOT apply to the module tests or any customer-created exams. For the module tests, you will have to open and close them manually within the Assignments tab. For more information, see the How Pacing Works article.

How to turn on this feature:

1.) Go to the Classes Dashboard and choose a class.
2.) Go to the Assignments tab.
3.) On the left, click Student Pacing.

4.) Check the box to Require students to complete all lessons before attempting quizzes.

2. Require students to complete all quizzes before attempting the module test.

This feature is great if you want to ensure that individual students complete all of the unit quizzes before accessing the module test. If needed, you can open a module test for an individual student even while this feature is turned on.

Something to keep in mind: For this setting to work, the module tests must be set as Open for the class. That setting opens the test and then this pacing sequence controls individual student access to it. For more information, see the How Pacing Works article.

How to turn on this feature:

1.) Go to the Classes Dashboard and choose a class.
2.) Go to the Assignments tab.
3.) On the left, click Student Pacing.

4.) Check the box to Require students to complete all quizzes before attempting the module test.

3. Require students to complete all modules in sequence.

This feature is great if you want to ensure that individual students complete the modules in the sequence you have arranged. 

Something to keep in mind: For this setting to work, the modules in the assignment list must be started and completed in the order they are listed. If you close an incomplete module higher in the list of assignments, the modules under it will not be accessible, even if they are set as open. For more information, see the How Pacing Works article.

How to turn on this feature:

1.) Go to the Classes Dashboard and choose a class.
2.) Go to the Assignments tab.
3.) On the left, click Student Pacing.

4.) Check the box to Require students to complete all quizzes before attempting the module test.

4.  Allow/Prevent students continuing assessments after 60 minutes of inactivity.

Student Pacing also allows you to choose if students will be able to complete an assessment in more than one session. Meaning, they will have an unlimited amount of time to complete an assessment, even if they sign out, the student will be brought right back into the assessment to complete the next time they sign in rather than having the assessment automatically hand in after 60 minutes. 

When the assessment is selected:

When a student walks away from an assessment, they have 60 minutes to log in and complete it. 

Once 60 minutes has passed, the system will automatically turn in the student’s test, regardless of whether it’s completed. 

When the assessment is not selected:

When a student walks away from an assessment, they have an unlimited amount of time to log in and complete it. 

They won’t be able to do anything else in their account until the assessment is completed. 

This feature will only work if you turn it on BEFORE the assessment is begun. 

How to set this feature:

1.) Go to the Classes Dashboard and choose a class.
2.) Go to the Assignments tab.
3.) On the left, click Student Pacing.
4.) If you want students to be able to continue assessments even after 60 minutes of inactivity, CLEAR the boxes for the assessments.

5.) If you want the system to automatically hand-in assessments for a grade after 60 minutes of inactivity, CHECK the boxes for the appropriate assessments.

5. Due Date Action

If you assign a due date to a module, you have two options regarding what happens when that due date occurs. You can either choose that the system does nothing and students can continue to work in the module regardless of the set due date. Or you can have the module automatically close access to students.

How to set this feature:

1.) Go to the Classes Dashboard and choose a class.
2.) Go to the Assignments tab.
3.) On the left, click Student Pacing.
4.) If you want students to be able to continue working in a module even after after the module due date occurs, select Do nothing.

5.) If you want the module to be closed to students when the due date occurs, select Close the assignment.
