In the example below, just one entity -- a single course -- was selected to ensure that all students who have completed course A will be granted credit for the example course. Qualify the type of course completion requirement by how the required credit was achieved.
In this more complex example, the administrator has defined one Course and two Position Codes as rule Entities. He then built the Rule to state that any student who has completed Course A AND is assigned Position (Code B OR Code C) will be granted credit for the course.
Once a course equivalency has been established, all LMS users who fit the rule will receive appropriate course credit. Because this is an automated process, students will not receive email confirmation as they would with a normal course completion. However, they will find a new completed transcript for the equivalent course listed under their History tab, using the search filter “Equivalency only”.
Note: The “Course Display Date” controls when credit can be applied to a user’s training history. Therefore, the completion date of an equivalency transcript will reflect either the display date of the course being granted, or the date that the student passed the equivalent course, whichever is later. For example, Course B was created with Display Date 04/01/2016 and an equivalency rule of Course A:
