Gates allow teachers to create Stop Points during a sequence.
These Stop points halt the progress of learners through a sequence, until certain outcomes have been achieved.

There are several types of gates:

  • Permission Gates require a monitoring teacher to manually open the gate before Learners can pass through.
  • Synchronise Gates require all learners actively participating in the sequence to reach the gate before it opens.
  • Schedule Gates open at a specified date and time. Since LAMS 2.1, Schedule Gates can be opened ahead of schedule. Click here to see how (Animation).
  • NEW Condition Gates allow a gate to open based on the outputs of a previous activity. Currently, these activities provide output conditions.

    Hi Jeremy
    Sorry for troubling you again. I successfully finished my gradebook (smile) thank you soo much for that help.
    I have small question about the condition gate, in the Monitoring lesson, there are to lists
    1. Have not met the condition
    2. waiting in front of the gate
    what is the difference between them,?
    why is the user who has passed the condition is listed in the "waiting in front of the gate"

    thank you

    G'Day Harsha,

    That's a great question, and it's more of a reflection on how the gate tool is coded – the same monitoring interface is used for all three gate styles, so in this case, there's just cause for some confusion.

    In addition, it looks like you've stumbled across a little bug in the way the tool functions. Learner's who automatically clear the gate shouldn't be displaying in that second column at all. I'll raise this issue in the bug tracker and get it looked at for next release.

    List 1: Have not met conditions
    These are all the learners at the gate, who cannot automatically pass it, because they have not met the conditions.

    They'll get a boilerplate message:
    "You have reached a condition gate. You have not satisfied the required conditions and you may not pass. Please return to previous activities. After you correct your answers, please press the button to proceed to next activities."

    The only way for them to pass is to go back in the sequence (with the progress bar) and re-attempt the activity (if you've allowed multiple attempts.) Alternatively, you can pass individual learners through the gate ("Allow to pass" button), or open the gate for all learners, regardless of conditions. ("Open", up the top.)

    List 2: Waiting in Front of the Gate
    Clearly, there's a bug in the works here, as this list shouldn't contain those learners who have automatically cleared the gate.
    However, regardless of what this list says, the learners who meet the condition will automatically clear the gate, and they'll also appear in the third column, "Allowed to Pass"
    Even if you manually select the learners who have already passed from the second column, there won't be an issue, as they're already past the gate.
    Basically, you can pretty much ignore this middle column when using the condition gate.

    Hope that clears things up, and thanks for your question.

    – Jeremy.
