Set Default Course Settings

This menu allows the administrator to select the elements that will be enabled when users create new courses.

Individual Learning Plans

This section allows the administrator to change the name of the tool or the name of the plan.

Assessment Settings

The system administrator should set the grading scale for assessments prior to course creation or site usage. It is important that district/school guidelines and/or members of the assessment or curriculum teams are consulted. It is recommended to select the option for 'score as an assessment alternative'.
