The Student Pacing & Sequencing settings work together with the overriding open and closed settings. The Open/Close settings are at the top of the food chain. The pacing and sequencing settings take their cues from the top. So what does that mean? Let's give some visual examples...

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

In scenario shown below, even if the student completes all the lessons in the Computers, Information, Processing, and Storage unit, he would still be unable to take that quiz because the Open/Close setting is set as closed.

However, if the student completes all the lesson in the Operating Systems and Networks unit, he will be given access to the quiz because the Open/Close setting is set as open AND the student has completed all the lessons.
(Here's where to set this option.)

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

In scenario shown below, even if the student completes all the quizzes in the Computing Systems module, she would still be unable to take that test because the Open/Close setting is set as closed for the test.

However, if the student completes all the quizzes in the Digital Citizenship module, she will be given access to the test because the Open/Close setting is set as open AND the student has completed all the quizzes.
(Here's where to set this option.)

3. Require students to complete modules in sequence.

In scenario shown below, the teacher wants the students to skip the Web Research module and start the Professionalism module. However, even if the student completes all the lessons, quizzes, and test in the Computing Systems, Digital Responsibility, and Digital Citizenship modules, he would be still be unable to access the Professionalism module because the Web Research module has not been completed. 

If you want students to skip over modules in your list of assignments, you either must turn off this setting OR move the incomplete module to a location farther down in the list of Assignments.
(Here's where to set this option.)
