Can I add Odysseyware lessons to my other non-Odysseyware courses?
No. We have functionality in our Odysseyware courses that allows for open ended response questions within an assignment or assessment which requires teacher grading. For that reason Odysseyware courses do not have protesting. This is to not impede student progress. Allowing Odysseyware lessons in non-Odysseyware courses breaks that convention.
Can I add non-Odysseyware lessons to my Odysseyware courses?
No. Odysseyware courses use a completely different assessment platform than the current courses (Learnosity). Changes and improvements had to be made to the player to accommodate this. Unfortunately the experience in some of the older questions is less than ideal and can impede student progress.
What course options are not available in these courses?
The course options are the same except the following, which cannot be changed due to some assessment questions requiring teacher grading:
  • Automatic Progression is enabled, because many assessments include teacher-graded items.
  • Fail Attempts are set to 1.
  • Prescriptive Testing is disabled.

The yellow alert means the student has submitted work that needs grading. The red alert means the student is out of retakes on an assessment.
