Best Practice: Approaches to Adaptive Release

Adaptive release can provide structure to your course in the following ways.

Apply review status criteria as the student progresses

Your course is divided into sections, each containing an overview, readings, and a quiz. You want content to be released as the student progresses through content and marks items as reviewed.

  • You want the overview to always be visible, so you apply no criteria.
  • You want the readings to be available after the overview has been reviewed, so you apply a review status rule to each of the readings, selecting the overview.
  • You want the quiz to be available after the final reading has been reviewed, so you apply a review status rule to the quiz, selecting that reading.

Apply date criteria as the term progresses

Your course is divided into three sections. You want the sections available on specific dates throughout the term.

  • You want the first section to always be visible, so you apply no criteria.
  • You want the second section to be available after February 1st, so you apply a date rule to each item in the section.
  • You want the third section to be available after March 1st, so you apply a date rule to each item in the section.

Apply grade criteria for remedial purposes

You created additional course material for remedial purposes.

  • You want the remedial material to be available to students who receive 65% or less on their midterm exams, so you apply a grade rule to the material based on this test score.
