Course Completions are Changing on the Development Zone

As users of the Development Zone will be aware, courses currently auto complete and issue badges upon reaching the set completion criteria of 80% in either the initial or revisited gap analysis quiz. However, through our discussions with firms and analysis of completion data, we have discovered that many users prefer to retry the gap analysis revisited quiz until they have achieved 100%. Some firms even require this of their employees.

To allow users the freedom to submit multiple attempts past the 80% grade criteria and ensure only your highest grade is carried through to the CPD recorder, we are introducing learner submission across our catalogue, over the coming weeks.

Once implemented, when they are happy with their grade, users will simply need to tick a box on the appropriate section (initial or revisited gap analysis) to confirm that they wish to submit their quiz score as their final grade.

This will trigger issuing of the course badge and will lock the quizzes - preventing any further attempts - until the user is re-assigned the course by their team leader or supervisor.

Alternatively, we have also introduced self-re-enrolment, meaning learners can initiate a new attempt and reset the course, without having to request that their manager/supervisor archive their previous completion. This will now be available in a block on the top right of every course page once the course has been completed, giving users more freedom with their learning.


For support with this or any other query, Development Zone users can contact the team by emailing or calling 01495 708 037.

If you are not a Development Zone user and would like to find out more, a 14-day free trial is available with no commitment, allowing users to experience the new features and see the benefits for themselves.
