Modules is a function that teachers can use to compile various things that are somehow related. It can be a theme week, a clinical placement, or an entire sub course. A simple example of an exam element is a written test where the student must pass either the regular exam, a re-exam, or the make-up exam to receive a passing grade.

Some sub courses are more complex and may require multiple components for a passing grade, such as a passed exam, a submitted assignment, and a certain level on one or more forms. An example of such an exam element is shown in figure 1 above.

To pass the module in the figure, the student must have passed either the "Exam" or "Re-exam," obtained a passing grade on a submitted assignment, and been assessed on two different form questions. In some cases, there are also conditions for a form question, such as being assessed at least 2 times and at a specific level (scale step).

Modules for course themes and sub courses

Many courses use the module function both to collect materials and assignments in thematic divisions and to gather detailed components in a sub course. In the example above, the teacher has made available two sub courses (yellow) and four thematic modules (green). This view is accessed by clicking on "Overview" under "Portfolio" in the left column. 

Open a module

If you click on "Open module" next to a module, you can see what is included in that theme or sub course. In figure 3, "Module 2" has been opened, displaying the theme "Antigen presentation and immune memory." It contains 20 pieces of content/course material (of which I have read five), seven quizzes, and two exams (a regular exam and a re-exam). There are no assignments included in this module.

By clicking on any of the arrows, such as "Quizzes," you are taken to the same view as if you had clicked on "Quizzes" in the left column, but pre-filtered to only show quizzes related to the current module.

Grading components 

In figure 3 above, at the bottom right, there is a list of all the grading components that are assessed and included in the grade for the module. In this module, "iRAT2" is included.

Components in a module

In figure 4, which is from another module, you can see that there are three different assignments. The student has received a Pass grade on all three assignments, indicated by a green dot followed by a grade, in this case, "Pass."

The module as a whole has received the grade "Completed" because all the components included are approved.

Tip: If you click on one of the components, you will be taken directly to that task! If the component is another module (e.g., an exam where you need to have passed either the regular exam or the re-exam), you will first be taken to that module before being able to click further into the individual components.
