Module Requirements

Jump to solution

I have a course with five modules. Each module has a requirement set (actually it has a requirement that students complete one of two possible options).  I want to have a "Certificate of Completion"  (module 6) show only after students complete all of the preceding modules.  I set the final module to require completion of the previous five modules - but it seems to show as soon as the students complete any one of the modules - not all five of them.  

Is this an accurate assessment?  Is there any way to require students to complete all five modules in order to receive the certificate of completion. Or do I have to make each module a prerequisite for the subsequent module in order to lock the Certificate of Completion until all modules are complete.

Hi  @nancy_lachance  

You second alternative is the correct choice.  When you set the final Certificate Module to require all previous modules as a prerequisite, Canvas is reading that as either/or.

I have to do this all the time - previously for certificates, now for badges. Set each module as the prerequisite for the next module. Then when they complete the final content module, the Certificate module will become available.  Luckily, this is a rather quick and easy setup.

Thank you, Kelley! We had hoped to have students be able to complete modules in any order they wanted, but it does appear that will not be an option. Thank you very much for the rapid response!
