Align objectives to activities and assessment questions

The second part of setting up a remediation assessment is aligning the targeted objectives with both the assessment questions and the activities that you want included as remediation.

To align assessment questions with objectives:

In the Course Editor, click on the pencil icon next to the assessment that needs edits.

Click on the Questions tab in the Activity Editor. Click on the question to be edited in the left-hand panel.

Scroll down in the right hand panel of the question to edit the section "Objective Mastery." Click on the link "Choose Objective."

1. There are two options: "Inherited and selected objectives" and "all objectives." Selected objectives are the standards assigned to the specific activity; all objectives are the standards available for the entire course.

2. Click the checkboxes next to each applicable standard.

3. Click "Done" when finished.

Configure assessment settings for remediation

Once questions have been aligned to standards, click the Settings tab in the Activity Editor. Scroll down to the "Advanced assessment options" section. Click on the down arrow icon to expand the section.

Configure assessment options as needed, but be sure to click the checkbox next to "remediation assessment."

Click "Save" when done making changes.

Configure passing criteria

Click the Tools button (wrench icon) to bring up the dropdown menu.

Click on Course Settings.

Scroll down on the course settings page to view the Objective Mastery section. In the Remediation Assessment section, specify the "Minimum number of questions" that need to be aligned with a standard, as well as the overall "Minimum score" a student can earn on those questions before receiving remediation activity suggestions. Click "Save" at the top righthand corner when done.
