Access Course Settings


The link to the Course Settings page is found in the pull-down menu on any page of your Acrobatiq course:




Depending on the policy of your institution, after clicking "Course Settings" you will be able to view or control parameters for your course. Within Course Settings you will find these tabs: 



Course Settings tab



Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are required. Here you can review or update the fields in the image above.

  • Title

  • Course key (review only)

  • Institution name

  • Start date (does not affect access)

  • End date (does not affect access; this date only determines whether appears in the "finished" section of My Courses)

  • Time zone


Roster Tab

Anyone who enters the course through an LMS (Blackboard, D2L, Moodle, etc.) will be automatically assigned the role (or equivalent role) that they currently have in the LMS. 




Assessment Settings Tab

Here you can control the number of attempts your students have on assessments. Scores are recorded in the gradebook according to the scoring model you select: First attempt​, Last attempt (default value), Maximum, Average. You can also adjust settings for Feedback and Late Work. 


Personal Practice (Apply What You Know) Tab

Personal Practice / Apply What You Know activities measure a student's understanding of Learning Objectives to tailor a unique path through the work. In these activities every student is presented with the same core questions; if a student has a moderate or low Learning Estimate on any Learning Objective in the course, scaffolding questions will be added to the activity to bolster learning. Personal Practice assessments have only one set of questions. Multiple unique attempts are not possible.

Note: This is not available in all courses. Setting can only be adjusted before students begin work in a Personal Practice / Apply What You Know activity.

Before a student begins a Personal Practice / Apply What You Know you have the option to make them scored for completion, scored for a grade, or un-scored. The default state is Scored for Completion. If you choose to make Personal Practice scored, only the core group of questions will be scored. This way, every student will be exposed to the same set of question for scoring purposes.
