Setting release conditions for grade items or categories

Release conditions allow you to associate grade items and grade book categories with other items in Learning Environment.

  2. In the Restrictions tab, do one of the following:
    • Click Attach Existing, then select a tool from the View Conditions for drop-down list. Select the check box for any condition you want to attach, then click Attach.
    • Click Create and Attach, then select a Condition Type from the drop-down list. Complete any additional Condition Details that appear, then click Create.

  1. On the Manage Grades page, click Delete from the More Actions button.
  2. Select the check box for each grade item or category want to delete.

Notes
  • Selecting a category does not select the grade items that reside in it. If you delete a category, the grade items associated with it become independent grade items.
  • You cannot delete grade items that are associated with another course object, such as a quiz, discussion topic, or dropbox folder. To delete the item you must first remove the association. Click the Information icon for a grade item with an association to view details about where the item is used.

  • Content (only SCORM objects)

Note Completing a quiz included in a SCORM package automatically generates a grade item in the grades list, populated with the quiz results. To manually create a grade item for a SCORM package, see Cobra Learning - Using SCORM in Content.
