Our question customization tool allows instructors to add or remove questions throughout their lessons, as well as add new data collection tables.
Only courses that have Custom Lesson Authoring enabled are able to use this tool. If you have any questions about your course's status, contact your Account Representative.
Accessing the Question Customization tool
1. In the navigation dropdown, select "Custom Lesson Authoring."
The lock icon next to a lesson name means that the lesson is currently unavailable for students because there are unpublished changes. Once you have published your changes to the lesson, the icon will disappear and the lesson will be available as normal.
1. Elements on Question Customization pages
This slider appears on the top right of every question box. It indicates whether a question will be shown to students (and its grade counted) or not. If it is to the right with the teal indicator, it will appear in the lesson.
Moving the slider to the left turns off the question. If the question is turned off, its Default Point Value becomes 0 and you will a see the message "This question has been excluded from the lesson."
You can hide or show any question, whether it was written by you or Science Interactive!
This check box affects what questions are currently being displayed to you while editing. It does not have any effect on what the students see. Checking the box hides all questions in the current page that have "Include in Lesson?" turned off.
