If I want to give my students a choice in one part of my English course where they need to complete at least 30 points worth of assignments from a list where the assignments could range anywhere from 1 point to 10 points each, how do I handle that in a Moodle course? I could have some students completing three 10 point assignments and other students completing thirty 1 point assignments. The list of assignment choices would be way to long to build in the course itself, I would expect the list to live outside the course.
I'm trying to think of ways to tackle this:
Each student would be working on some assignment at this moment. Is there a way to build an assignment that the student would submit their intentions and their possible points could be entered in per student at that time?
How do I make the goal of the course to get x points and not complete this list of assignments?
Does anyone have an example of a course where they use Moodle to manage a course based on self directed learning where the students declare their assignment and end up working at a different pace and on different stuff than their piers?
