By default, students can take courses as often as they’d like. Schoox keeps track of the amount of time spent on each course, and whether or not the course has been completed.
You are able, however, to require that specific students retake courses. You are then able to track each completion attempt separately. You have also the option to create automated reassignment rules.
Just navigate to your Admin tab from the upper navigation menu and select one of the available options that you have in order to oblige a user to retake a course:
- Employees Dashboard
- Oblige to Retake page
To oblige a student to retake a course, navigate to your Admin tab from the upper navigation menu. From the left side menu, select Employees Dashboard under Reporting, and search for the employee.
Select the course you'd like them to retake and click the wrench icon.
Click on the Oblige to Retake checkbox, add a due date (if needed) and hit Assign Now.
The student will then be notified that they need to retake the course, and they will no longer be able to see their previous progress. Moreover, the Due date field will be updated accordingly, based on the new assignment.
You can check how many times someone has taken a course, by clicking the retake icon within the course.
Important note: You have the option to oblige users to retake the Course even if they have not yet completed it! Just follow the very same process (Click on the Oblige to Retake checkbox, add a due date if needed, hit Assign Now button) and their progress will be reset to 0%.
Oblige to Retake page
From the left side menu, select Oblige to Retake under Online Training, and click on the Courses tab.
First, you need to select the course that you want (you can find the course easier using the relevant search field). Once you have found it, click on the name of it to select it.
After the desired course is selected, it is time to select the users that you want to oblige to retake it. You have the option to select either specific employees (Individual retake) or a group of employees based on their job and location (Advanced retake).
You can find individuals easier using the search field and drop-down filter menus. In order to select an individual, simply click the Plus symbol next to his/her name in the left-hand column. The user will then appear in the right-hand Selected column. To remove an individual from the list, click the Minus symbol.
Once you have selected the users that you want, add a new due date if you want to and click on the blue "Oblige to retake" button at the bottom of your page in order to complete the process.
You can also select users based on their job and location. Moreover, you can create a reassignment rule to be applied automatically in the future.
Under Advanced retake, select the specific job to which this retake process should be applied. Then, select both the desired Above Units and Units in their respective columns, filtering using the drop-down menus, if needed.
The number of individuals affected will appear below.
You have the choice of either to oblige this group to retake the selected course this one time, and/or setting up a rule that will automatically oblige individuals under these parameters to retake it in the future.
Check Automated reassignment rule to create a rule for this course. You can create automated reassignment rules in two ways:
1. Reassign every x months from course enrollment/completion
2. Reassign on specific date
Please note that you have the option to choose if you want to reassign the course only to users that have already completed it or to all enrolled users.
Add a due date and a message if you want to, and click the blue Reassign now and Set Rule button when finished.
Please note: If you create a re-assignment rule and set a specific due date (e.g. 10 days), this due date will be applied in every new re-assignment.
