Competency Based Exams/Grades

Question asked by Gina Smith on Jun 2, 2015

Looking for ideas from some of the experienced Canvas Admins.  We have medical courses where students have competency exams.  They are required to pass each competency exam. If they fail one competency exam they fail the course.  In ANGEL we were able to manage this with agents. If a competency exam was below 74% the student automatically received a 0 for that competency exam. There are only three competency exams in a course and each is weighted at 30% so if a student receives a 0 for only one competency exam the 0 grade will give them a 70% in the course which is a failing grade.

 

Any other admins out there have competency based classes where you have come up with a "programmatic" solution for this other than the instructor have to manually change these grades to 0?

 

Thank for your time and thoughts in advance.
