Use Cases of content Groups:

  1. Course - For delivering a complete set of learning material and assessments over a few days or weeks with adaptivity.
  2. Test Series - For delivering only assessments but over a few days or weeks with adaptivity.
  3. Grouped Test - For delivering a set of few tests together and supposed to be taken in one sitting. This is an entity to be used primarily to split a single final exam into multiple timed assessments.


Combining content groups:


There are 3 simple rules.

  1. A Course can contain a 'Grouped Test'.
  2. A Test Series can contain a 'Grouped Test'
  3. A Course cannot contain a Test Series.

 Notes:

Adaptivity of the course brings in personalization of content delivery to each student. Hence, each student may take a different path even within a single course.

Drip feed (enabling each individual item after specific duration) and step feed (admin enables access for individual items) controls are not yet available.
