Set Release Conditions for Final Grades

Release conditions allow you to create a custom learning path through the materials in your course by controlling how and when students access certain course items. When you attach a release condition to a course item, students cannot see that item until they meet the associated condition. For example, you can require that students meet some criteria, such as completing an End of Course survey, before gaining access to their final grade.
