Grades are sent automatically
If you are accessing Labster simulations from your LMS course, grades will be sent automatically, once students complete a simulation (progress = 100%). Your gradebook may display the first, last or best grade obtained by your students, depending on your setup. Your LMS administrator is able to update this parameter for you, by updating the custom parameter of the Labster LTI tool provider according to the table below:
If you do not add any custom grade parameter, by default your gradebook will display the best attempt's grade. Real-life example: A student plays the same simulation twice. They complete the simulation for the first time and get a score of 60 out of 100. The same student completes the simulation for the second time and gets a score of 70 out of 100. Only the best completed attempt will be visible on Canvas gradebook which in this case is 70.
Please note that updating the filters in the Labster dashboard does not result in updating the grades in your gradebook.
Assigning points to each simulation
Like any other assignment, each Labster simulation can be assigned specific points. Changing those points will impact the grade percentage in your gradebook for future grades. Some LMS, like Canvas, require grades to be re-sent in order for the change to take effect on already obtained grades.
In rare cases, grades may not be properly sent to your LMS (for instance if students internet disconnects during play). If this happens, you can manually re-send the grade to your LMS gradebook for the students affected. Here is how:
1. Navigate to your Labster Dashboard (can be accessed via your course or in the left hand-side menu of any simulation loading screen)
2. Click on the student email and on the attempt for which the grade is missing. Important: the grade will only be sent if the attempt is fully completed (progress = 100%)
3. In the new window, click on Re-send to LMS
Alternatively, you can report the missing grades to Labster, and we can trigger a manual update/resend of those student grades. Important: make sure you include the email of each student, and your license code if relevant, so that we can easily resend the grades.
