  • Custom Parameters: send_attempts=all or send_attempts=best

Note: It is 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. Setting this custom parameter often depends on your institution’s 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.

Add License Code**

**This step may be omitted if your institution's Labster setup does not require it. If prompted, please enter your Labster License Code as described below.

You will need to launch one of the simulations in the course to connect the course with the correct license. Please note that only a Teacher role can proceed with this step. If you are logged in as an Admin, please use the 'Quick Enroll' function.

  1. While logged in as a Teacher, click on one of the simulations and press Launch after you have completed adding the simulation URLs.

  2. A box will appear prompting you to enter your license code. Enter the license code provided by Labster and press Apply.*

  3. You will see a confirmation screen that your course is now fully set up and ready for your students.
