  Spring Cleaning! Reduce Clutter
  in Your Assignment Database

 

Posted April 29, 2009

Competency Assessment Program from the CAP offers many courses and checklists and not all may be appropriate for your facility. There is a way to make the unneeded courses “hidden” in order to reduce clutter in your assignment database and records. If a hidden course is needed later, you can return it to “shown,” which will allow you to assign the course to your students.

If a student has already been assigned a course that is later hidden, the student will continue to see the course listed on his or her homepage and will be able to complete the course. Sub-administrators cannot be assigned for hidden courses, but sub-administrators that have already been assigned for a course that is later hidden will still be able to view reports and assign the course as normal.

To hide a course:

  1. On the “View or Edit Courses” tab, go to Show/Hide Courses and Checklists.
  2. In the Shown Courses list, click on the Course Name that you want to have hidden in the course list. Hold the Control key to select multiple courses.
  3. Choose Hide Selected.
  4. The shown course(s) now appears in the Hidden Courses list.

To show a course that was hidden:

  1. In the Hidden Courses list, click on the Course Name that you want to have shown. Hold the Control key to select multiple courses.
  2. Choose Show Selected.
  3. The hidden course(s) now appears in the Shown Courses list.
