Creating a Basic Adaptive Release Rule
A basic Adaptive Release rule consists of a set of criteria that defines the visibility of a content item to students. If a rule has multiple criteria, the student must meet all criteria before the item is available.
To add a basic rule:
1.) Go the content area where the item is located
2.) Ensure that Edit Mode is ON
3.) Click the drop-down menu to the right of the item's name
4.) From the menu, click on Adaptive Release
5.) In the new Adaptive Release page, 4 separate criterion are listed: Date, Membership, Grade, and Review Status. For a basic rule, you may add multiple criterion to narrow the availability, but only one rule can be used per item.
6.) To add a date restriction you may either have a Display After, Display Until, or both.
7.) To add a criteria based upon membership, you may either Browse by a specific Username (separate users by commas), or by selecting the Course Group(s).
8.) To add a criteria by Grade, you must select a Grade Center Column from the drop down menu, and determine the Condition of the student's Grade in that particular Column.
9.) To add a criteria based upon a student's Review Status for an item, you must select an Item from within that Blackboard course. Click Browse to locate the Item.
10.) When done adding the criteria, click the Submit button to apply Adaptive Release. Now, all users will see that Adaptive Release is enabled on that particular Content Item.
NOTE: To delete a basic Adaptive Release, click on the drop-down menu next to the content item, select Adaptive Release: Advanced and in the new page, select the Rule and click Delete.
