These functions can help you deliver bespoke content to your students and assist in monitoring progress and participation.
An overview of the four functions:
All functions can be accessed by selecting the action link next to individual content items.
Select Adaptive release from the item's action link. You can restrict access by date, membership, Grade Centre item and review status.
Set the appropriate date(s), and remember to click Display After or Display Until as relevant.
Restrict by username: enter a username or click Browse to find someone.
Restrict by group: If you have groups set up, highlight the group(s) and move to the right column using the arrow.
Release content based on completion of a different item in the Grade Centre. Use the drop down menu to select the item. Then either leave as 'User has at least one attempt' or create criteria based on score achieved.
Select that an item can only be viewed once a second item has been marked 'reviewed' by a student. Browse for the item you want to have reviewed first.
Don't select a menu item as students cannot review them.
This contains the same features as Adaptive Release but allows you to set up multiple rules for an item. Go to Adaptive Release - Advanced from the item's action link. There you can see any rules which you have already set up and add new ones.
To add a new rule, click on Create Rule, add an appropriate name and then set criteria using the drop down menu/Review status. Rules are set up in the same way as described in the adaptive release section. Rules can also be modified and removed on this screen.
Select Set Review Status from the item's action link. Select Enable and click Submit.
After review status is enabled students will see the button as below on the screen next to the relevant item.
Track who has reviewed items via User Progress or the Performance Dashboard.
Select User Progress from the item's action link. This will open a table as below showing who can see an item and who has reviewed the item if relevant.
Go to the Performance Dashboard for full module/organisation information by student.
Please be aware that item statistics do not provide a reliable quantitative indication of how students have engaged with your module content.
This is because Minerva is recording when an item is displayed on a page. For example, if you have 3 handouts in Learning Resources and all 3 handouts have item statistics on, each time Learning Resources is opened will count as a hit for all 3 handouts in that area, regardless of whether they are opened.
Statistics are kept for 30 days only.
Go to Statistics Tracking from the item's action link enable it and Submit. To view statistics, select the item’s action link again and then View Statistics Report.
Select the drop down menu for Content Usage Statistics and then Run. Select the appropriate download format (PDF, HTML, Excel or Word) and date(s). Don't select any users if you want a report for all (including staff). To select individual users, highlight them whilst holding the Ctrl key.
Then click Submit
Statistics are also available at module/organisation level for content areas and certain tools. See the Module/Organisation Reports guide
