  • Tool description: (optional)
  • Consumer Key: Your Labster Consumer Key
  • Shared Secret: Your Labster Secret Key
  • Custom parameters: send_attempts=all

Optional to add a custom grade parameter which will send all or best completed attempts to 100% to the gradebook instead of just the first fully completed attempt.

Please note that choosing this option will enable it for all courses associated with this consumer and secret key.

Please note that setting this custom parameter often depends on your institution policy, and what makes most sense to the instructors.

Please also note that your LMS may have certain grade filtering options applied, which sometimes results in only the last attempt being displayed in the grade book.
