After a target has been mastered, it can be assigned to maintenance. In maintenance, you can select an interval on which to assess the target to ensure a student maintains the skill. Maintenance levels and intervals are defined for the whole organization (See Administration). Based on these levels, you can define how a specific student’s targets will move through the various defined Maintenance levels.
Maintenance Criteria will always need an initial maintenance level. This will be the level that the target will enter first when it is 'mastered out'. By default, when a student is created, mastered targets will be set to close out and no maintenance will be run. You can easily change these default settings by editing the criteria in the Student Settings section. If you do not want to use the maintenance section of Catalyst, choose the Close Target option, and targets will automatically be closed upon mastery. Choosing a specific maintenance level will put all targets into that level upon mastery.
For each maintenance level that your organization has defined, you can specify the criteria that will need to be met to move to and from different levels.
Targets can either be Promoted or Demoted from a specific maintenance level based upon the criteria entered. For promotion, targets must have x out of y correct probes where x is the correct probes and y is the number of probes that must take place. If consecutive probes are desired, the numbers should be the same. If this is met, targets will move to the level specified in the Promote To dropdown. If you wish for a target to be closed after being successful in this level, you can choose the Close Target option.
For demotion, targets must have x out of y incorrect probes, where x is the incorrect count and y is the number of probes that must take place. If consecutive probes are desired, the numbers should be the same. If this is met, targets will move to the level specified in the Demote To dropdown. If you wish for a target to be re-opened after being un-successful in this level, you can choose the Re-Open Target option.
