Creating and differentiating paths

Once you've created your quest and added objectives to your map, you can create and differentiate paths between your objectives.

Paths represent the student progression between each objective on the map — they can be linear or branching. To start connecting your objectives, click the blue "path" button in the navigation bar above your map.

Note: If your quest is assigned to several classes, creating and modifying the paths between your objectives will automatically sync in all classes where this quest exists.

After the navigation bar turns blue, click on one objective and drag your cursor to the next to create a path. A small menu will then appear over your path:

  • Select the checkmark to only allow students who successfully completed the objective to proceed.
  • Select the X to only allow students who unsuccessfully completed the objective to proceed. (You may want to use this strategy to lead students who need extra help understanding a concept onto a branching path that involves more work or teaches the idea in another way.)
  • Select both the checkmark and X to allow all students, regardless of successful or unsuccessful completion, to proceed.
  • Use the trashcan to delete the path between objectives.

Note: If you enabled Self-Paced Progress for an objective (as marked by the blue lightning bolt on its pin), the green checkmark will be automatically selected for all students who complete the objective.

In the example above, all students move from "The Tower that Reached the Sky" to "A Syrinx's Feather." (Self-Paced Progress is enabled for "The Tower that Reached the Sky," meaning students will progress automatically, without the teacher's intervention.) However, only students who have succeeded that last task will go to "Life and Colors" while students who have failed will go through "The Voice of the Winds" before moving on to "Life and Colors."

Providing branching paths is a great way to provide extra support to students who are having difficulties: Simply add additional tasks for them to complete in order to reach the objective.

Click the "x" button in the navigation bar to quit the Path Creation mode. Once you’re ready to share your quest, you can click the "eye" icon in the bar to make it visible to your students.

You can also make your quest visible from My Library. If you've made your quest visible prematurely, you can always hide it again. To do so, proceed to My Library, find your quest, open its description, and click on the “Visible” (button in your class to hide it again.

Next, you can learn more about the Quests Progress Center.
