Calculating Points

One of the ways we motivate students is with the use of actions that give points when checked off.

If you're calculating a student's total points and things aren't adding up, here are all the places where points may be hiding that contribute to the total:

Available Points

Your student will always see their "Available Points" - this number may fluctuate, as the student progresses.

For example, content that's in "draft" mode doesn't get counted into the "Available Points" total for students -- because it's not yet available.

Also, Module Completion Points are extra "Surprise" points - they're not counted in the "Available Points" before the student has completed the Module.

This means that the total available number of points can fluctuate, as a student moves through the course.
