Issue awards to students

First steps

First, you need to decide whether you will issue awards ad-hoc (by manually assigning awards to students as needed) or automatically, based on course-related achievements (assigning Release Conditions).

The following instructions assume that you have already made your course shell 'Active', have enabled the Awards tool and have created an award in your course.

Note: you will not be able to issue awards if your course shell is Inactive.

Use this to issue awards to students individually, on an ad-hoc basis.

Steps to Manually Issue an Award
  1. Start by going into the Awards tool in your course.
Steps to Manually Issue an Award
  1. Make sure you are in the Classlist Awards page, and can see a list of the students in your class.
  2. Use the checkboxes to the left of each student name to select which students will receive this award. Note that all selected students will receive the same award. If they each require different awards, you will need to issue them one at a time.
  3. Scroll to the top of the page, and click the Issue button.
Steps to Manually Issue an Award
  1. Select an Award by clicking the dropdown menu and choosing the appropriate award to issue the selected students.
  2. Award Criteria - Enter the reason for the award.
  3. Click the Issue button to complete the process. When you return to the Classlist Awards page, you will see the new awards issued to the students.

 

You may have some awards that are based on activities in the course that can be tracked. For example, you may issue an award to a student who has achieved over 80% on a project, or has accessed all of the content for the course, etc. These kinds of trackable milestones can be set up to issue awards using a feature in D2L Brightspace called Release Conditions.

Steps to use Release Conditions to issue Awards
  1. Start by going into the Awards tool in your course.

  2. Locate the award you want to modify, and click its Edit Properties link.
Steps to use Release Conditions to issue Awards
  1. To add a Release Condition to this award, click the Create button. These Release Conditions are similar to the ones used to release content, quizzes, discussions, and other things in D2L.
Steps to use Release Conditions to issue Awards
  1. Select the Condition Type. These include 'Visited Content Topic', 'Completed Quiz Attempt', 'Score on a Quiz' and 'Grade value on a grade item'.
  2. The Condition Details will vary depending on the Condition Type you selected. For example, if the award is issued based on a 'Grade value on a grade item', the Condition Detail would include selecting the grade item that the condition is based on (like Midterm Exam) and the grade achieved (like >= 60%).
  3. Click the Create button to add the Release Condition criteria.
Steps to use Release Conditions to issue Awards
  1. Click the Save button for the award in order to complete the creation of the Release Condition.
