IC Minimum Grade Requirement for Online Assessments

I have had a couple teachers ask me about setting a minimum required grade for online assessments in Infinite Campus based on what they have experienced with other online assessment tools, like at SMCC. Unfortunately, I finally figured out through the IC Community Forums that it isn't possible. One suggestion was to manually add another copy of the assignment into your gradebook and then exclude the first one if they didn't score what they needed to. But that creates way more work for you in terms of managing the online assessments. You could also manually set up a category with just the one assessment that you have a minimum score for. Then you could have two copies of the assessment in that folder and then have it drop the lowest score. That would give them two opportunities to do the assessment and meet the score that you want them to get. If it would take them more than two opportunities to get the required score than one would argue that the student doesn't understand it and needs further instruction before making another attempt on that assessment. In that instance, you could reset the attempt on that second copy and let them attempt it again once you have instructed again.

I hope that makes sense! I wish I had a better answer for those of you who wanted this feature.
