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:
- Training actions: your training content can have a custom amount of actions and points attached
- Standalone actions: you can embed standalone actions on any page of your course, including the home page
- Module completion bonus: you can give extra "bonus" points when an entire module is completed. By default, this is set to zero though.
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.
