Add goals and tags to pages

As an author, you can add goals and tags to a page within a course under Page settings.

Note: Goals needed to be added in the area where you edit the course overview etc. For details on how to add and edit goals see How to add goals into your course.

Add tags to tasks and quizzes

You can also add tags to tasks and quizzes under Additional options.

Why add goals and tags?

But why would you allocate goals or tags to a page? Well it means that page now has extra data attached that you can use to filter, find or group things. For example, maybe you want to see if there's a pattern in which pages learners are getting the most visits?

  • Maybe most learners are skipping the pages relating to LO1.2?

  • Maybe learners aren't spending as long as you'd thought viewing pages that you've tagged as having a higher reading level?

  • Maybe learners are repeatedly viewing pages with discussions or assessments?

  • Maybe learners are skipping the tasks that scaffold to the first assessment and then doing poorly in the assessment?

  • Maybe you want to see how far along learners are in completing tasks that contribute to an assessment or standard?

Understanding Events and associated data

To understand a little more about how this works and what needs to happen... we need to talk about Events within iQualify and how you can gather data about events and send them somewhere e.g. to a spreadsheet.

When a learner does certain things in iQualify - views a page, submits a task etc. - we capture that "event". And events can have other data associated with them for instance in terms of viewing a page, we also capture who viewed that page and at what time.

And Account Owners can setup events such that whenever event x happens, event data is sent to y (connected app, zapier, spreadsheet etc.).

If your pages, tasks or quizzes have tags attached, your viewed a page event will have that tag data too.

This means, if you're capturing data about the viewed a page event, you can use those goals/tags to filter, find, or group. You can get more insights from the event. For instance, you could group pages with the tag "Discussions" and pages with the tag "Video" to see which are getting more views.

How do I get it set up?

Well, as an author, you first need to make you're you're adding goals or tags to the pages within your course.

Then, you need an Account Owner to configure the viewed a page event so that it sends the data to where you need it. This may need someone with some technical expertise as well, but see the articles listed below for further guidance.
