Locale Content Sets Preference

Use this preference if you want to use quizzes or assignments that were created for a culture different from your own.

Typically, if you are a US customer, you will only see US English and Spanish quizzes and assignments. If you are a UK customer, you will see only UK English quizzes and assignments, and if you are an Australian customer, you will see only Australia English quizzes and assignments. Using this preference, you can choose to see quizzes and assignments for additional countries. You can also use this preference to hide US Spanish quizzes if you do not want your students to see them.

Changes to this preference take effect overnight - you will see the results of the change the next day.

If you select more than one country or locale, you may see many duplicate reading quizzes. Quizzes are often created for the same book for different locations. To avoid confusion about which quizzes you want students to take, consider writing the quiz number on the label for each book.

How to set the preference

Who can do this with default user permissions?

District-level administrators, school-level administrators

District-level administrators can set the preference for all schools on your site. School-level administrators can set the preference for their schools. Other staff and teachers cannot set the preference unless they have been granted special permissions, but they can view the settings.

  1. Your schools are listed. For each school, check the location and language of the quizzes and assignments that you want to be available to students and teachers.
  2. If you want to use the same setting for all of your schools, select Set All above the table.

    In the popup window, check the applicable boxes or remove the check marks; then, select Apply to All. (You still need to save your changes.)

  3. Select Save Changes to save your settings. (Select < Back to go back to the Preferences page.) Your changes will take effect overnight and will be reflected in the software the next day.
