Allowing Users to Retake Courses

November 21, 2012

Question: If a User doesn’t pass a course the first time, how can they take it again?

Answer: The System Administrator needs to reset the course.

There are two reasons you would need to Reset a Course:

  1. A User did not receive a passing score. A passing score is 80% for both the Learn portion of the Course and the KNT or Knowledge Test.
  2. A User needs to re-qualify for a task.

Follow these steps to reset a course:

  1. Click Users
  2. Click Courses
  3. Click Courses – Reset Course Data
  4. Select the User
  5. Click Show All
  6. Click OK
  7. Select the Couse to be Reset
  8. Select the corresponding KNT
  9. Click Reset Course
  10. Click Reset Question Pool
  11. Click Submit
  12. Click OK

Click to view demonstration. (Requires Flash Player)

You will receive a confirmation that the Course was Successfully Reset. The User can then go back and take the Course again.

Keep in mind that this action is irreversible, and take care to make sure you are selecting the correct Courses for the correct User.

If you have any other questions regarding Resetting a Course, please contact the EnergyU Support Staff.

After taking courses… how do I see my scores?

November 8, 2012

The recent survey results identified some areas where additional information and training would benefit EnergyU Administrators and Users. One of the areas which received many comments was Users questioning how they could see their scores.

Users can view their scores by clicking on My Transcripts on the EnergyU Learner page. The courses assigned to the User will appear. If the User has attempted the course, the score (whether passed or not) and date scored will appear. The credits earned column can be ignored.

If the desired course doesn’t appear on the screen, there may be multiple pages to the transcript depending how many courses are assigned to a User.
