Pre-Test Grade to Affect Following Assignments

So here's what I want my course to accomplish:

So I'm hoping to make this course a self-guided learning tool. There are 6 modules or topics the student needs to learn about. There is one module each week, but this doesn't need to be moderated through Canvas itself. Each module includes a pre-test, a series of resources and learning tools, then a post-test. I was hoping to have the pre-test function as a "test-out" sort of assignment. If a student gets higher than a certain percentage, they do not need to complete the learning tools or post-test, and can automatically access the next section.

What I'm asking about:

I was hoping this would be easily accomplished through a pass/fail system (note I have already created a pass fail system through this guide: but it doesn't seem you can add actions based on the grade of an assignment. Is there any setting I can add to automatically assign or unlock different resources based on the grade of one quiz?

Have you looked into Mastery Paths?

Also, the Canvas Release notes on Mastery Paths provide some more in-depth information.

Additionally, at about 6 minutes into this video from InstructureCarn '18 the presenters talk about how what you want to do works.

Hope that helps, let us know!
