30-090 Tally List


With the course element Tally list you can create check lists or exam lists, embed them in the course structure and assess them. A Tally list consists of a variable number of checkbox elements. These can be ticked by either the course owner or the participant.

An informational tool, the Tally list allows for the creation of an attendance list and a to-do list.

Important Steps

  2. Click onto Administration and then onto Course editor. The Course editor opens up.
  3. Choose Insert course elements in the upper left-hand corner and under Assessment the course element Tally list. The Course element has been added to the course structure and can (if necessary) be moved to a different place via Drag&Drop. Alternatively it is possible to add course elements with the Quick-Add function in the yellow-lined menu on top of the course: Insert the name of the course element into the Quick-Add bar and push the Enter button.

  5. In the tabs Visibility and Access or Learning path you can, if desired, regulate the visibility and the access to the course elements:
    • If your course is a Conventional course, you will find more detailed information in HelpCard 10-030.
    • If your course is a Learning path course, you will find more detailed information in HelpCard 10-031. Additionally, as Completion criterion you will find the following options:
      • Score: The course element will be marked as done when a points minimum has been reached. Please note that a points minimum as well as a points maximum has to be defined in the tab Configuration for this to work.
      • Passed: The course element will be marked as done when it is automatically or manually assessed as Passed. Please note that you need to tick Display passed / not passed in the tab Configuration and add a Passed cut value for this to work.
      • Coach has set status to “done”: The course element will be marked as done when the course owner or coach has marked the status of any given assessment as Save and close or Save and set to ‘done’ status.
      • All checkboxes marked as completed: The course element is completed as soon as all checkboxes are marked as completed.

    • Label: You can choose between different labels here. Select one.
    • Score: Determine if a score will be assigned upon the ticking of this box and how many (this field will only show up once you selected Score granted in the tab Configuration).
