How do I set up the Labster Dashboard for my course?

It is important to set up the Labster Dashboard for each Sakai course using Labster. Student simulation results will not be recorded by Labster until you have set up the Labster Dashboard.

Select Labster.

In the target Sakai course, select the Labster tool from the tool menu.

Select a Simulation.

Select any simulation. The simulation will open in a new browser tab.

Select the Hamburger Menu.

In the new browser tab, select the hamburger menu (three horizontal lines).

Select Dashboard.

Your Labster Dashboard will open in a new browser tab.

Select Set up your dashboard.

Select Set up your dashboard.

Select Simulations.

  1. First, select all simulations used in this Sakai course from the list.
  2. Then, select Continue.

Select a Completion Threshold.

  1. First, select a radio button to define the completion threshold for this course.
  2. Then, select Continue.

The completion threshold defined in your Labster Dashboard does not influence which student scores are passed to the Sakai Gradebook. Students must complete a simulation to 100% for that score to be passed to the Sakai Gradebook.

If you want to see all student progress on simulations represented in your Labster Dashboard, select "Completion percentage does not influence my grading."

Define a Labster Score Threshold.

  1. First, move the slider to define a Labster score threshold for this course.
  2. Then, select Continue.

The score threshold defined in your Labster Dashboard does not influence which student scores are passed to the Sakai Gradebook. The score threshold provides an at-a-glance sense of how students are performing on assigned simulations by color-coding scores in your Labster Dashboard.

Select Play Attempts.

  1. First, select a radio button to define which play attempts you would like to be counted towards a student's grade.
  2. Then, select Continue.

The play attempts defined in your Labster Dashboard do not influence which student scores are passed to the Sakai Gradebook. By default, a student's best attempt will be passed to the Sakai Gradebook. ITRS staff may change this parameter upon request when simulations are added to your Sakai course.
