Adaptive Release

1. Introduction

You can create rules based on a date, time, user group, or attempts / scores in a quiz to manage the release of content. This is called adaptive release.

When applied, only users who meet your chosen adaptive release criteria will be able to see content. It's best not to apply multiple criteria, because if students can't see something, it can be difficult to work out why.

The following criteria can be applied to content:
Date – Content is released after a certain date or between particular dates.
Membership – Content is released to specific individuals or groups.
Grade – Content is released to students who achieved a grade for an assessment task.
Review Status – Content is released after a student marks content as Reviewed. This is not especially useful, as students can just click 'Reviewed' without having actually reviewed the content.
Adaptive release rules have two different levels of complexity, basic and advanced.

2. Create a basic adaptive release rule

Basic adaptive release allows you to create one rule per content item from one of the four categories listed above. For example, you may wish to set up adaptive release for a Turnitin assignment in order to manage extensions.
a. Turn Edit Mode ON.

b. Click the action link (circle with down arrow) adaptive icon 1 next to the content you want to apply a rule to.

c. Click Adaptive Release.
