How do I move a student between courses?

During the summer of 2017, we released a new Buzz UI, giving you the same features and functionality with a cleaner, simpler user experience!

Until all users have switched to the new UI, our Help Center articles will include information for both. 

Click the header below that aligns with the Buzz UI version you are using (Old UI or New UI); if you don't know which version you are using, review the differences and/or contact your system admin or Agilix account manager.

Old UI

Easily maintain student information when moving students between courses with a shared Master Course

  1. Open the Users tool from the Main Menu and select the user's User ID.
  1. Select the Enrollment ID that you want to change.
  2. Click Move in the toolbar.
  1. Enter the new course name or ID in the Move this enrollment to course field.
  2. Click Move.

When moving a student between courses that are copied from the same Master Course (even with a Static Copy), submission and grading information remains intact for all activities with matching activity IDs.

Tips

  • Blog, Discussion, Journal, and Wiki submission content isn't automatically transferred even with matching activity IDs.
  • When moving a student between courses with non-matching activity IDs, the teacher of the original course can export gradebook information for the new course's teacher.

Will the Move Enrollment option work properly as long as one of the masters in the chaining is the same? For instance, if a student moves to a school in a new district, can we move their enrollment as long as one of the masters within the chain is the same? In other words, the direct (father) master of the course wouldn't be the same, but the "grandfather" master is.

You can move any enrollment from any course to any other course. The students grades and submissions will only appear in the new course if the two courses have activities with the same IDs. Most likely, this would only happen if both of the courses derived from the same course or from each other. The two courses do not have to have the same master, but could have been a static copy.

Does this make sense?

Yes. Thank you for your response, Brad!
