Common Cartridge Converter

  • Schoology has built a Common Cartridge Converter that can convert a Common Cartridge v1.1 package into a Common Cartridge v1.2 package. This converter can be used to seamlessly migrate content built in other systems that use v1.1 into your Schoology Resources.

Decaying Average Mastery Calculation (Enterprise only)

  • The Decaying Average formula is a calculation method that places more weight on recently scored materials, thus displaying an objective score that is most indicative of a student's current mastery level.
  • We added Decaying Average as a new mastery score calculation method available under Mastery Settings. This option includes the ability to enter your own decay rate, with a pre-populated default decay rate of 75%.
  • Learn more about the Decaying Average Mastery Calculation here.
  • Note: Beginning July 1, 2018, Decaying Average will be the default calculation method for student mastery reporting in newly-created courses.
