How do I configure my exercise in Practice?

Once you have added an exercise to a group, you can configure the exercise. In the Configure Exercise tool, you can schedule the stages of your exercise and configure the following settings:

  • Exercise Name
  • Learner Response Type
  • Instructor Assessment
  • Model Response
  • Self Assessment
  • Self Reflection
  • Peer Assessment
  • Leaderboard
  • Score Visibility

View Exercise Configuration

You can configure the settings for the exercise name [1], learner response type [2], instructor assessment [3], model response [4], self assessment [5], self reflection [6], peer assessment [7], score visibility [8], and leaderboard [9].

If you switch the Peer Assessment option on, you can set how many peer assessments each learner needs to complete in order to unlock the next learning stage. If you switch the Leaderboard option on, you can set the number of top performers the leaderboard displays. The leaderboard is a list of the top performers in the exercise, populated by learners' average peer assessment scores. Unscored exercises do not have leaderboards.
