The difference between 'Absolute' and 'Dynamic' Learnlists

This article will explain the difference between choosing an 'Absolute' or 'Dynamic' Learnlist.

When a user completes a Learnlist, they will receive a score of 100%. When you are creating a new Learnlist, you will be asked how you want this completion to be calculated.

There are two options: Absolute or Dynamic. 

What is the difference?

Absolute:

- Once a user has completed and submitted a Learnlist, they will receive a score of 100%. 

- If you then add more content to this Learnlist, their score will not change.

- Their score will remain at 100%, even though now there is new content within the Learnlist that they have not completed.

- No matter how much new content is added to this Learnlist, their score will remain at 100%.

Dynamic:

- Imagine that a user has completed a Learnlist, and has a score of 100%.

- Then, you add new items to this Learnlist, that they won't have completed.

- Their score will then drop to below 100%, and will only go back to 100% once they have completed the new items that have been added to the Learnlist.

In summary:

- If you add more items to an absolute Learnlist that has been completed, the user's score will not change.

- If you add more items to a dynamic Learnlist that has been completed, the user's score will change from 100%.
