NEW: "End-of-lesson" boundaries to better control student pacing

Follow

Similar to our features for hiding/showing lessons to control students' pacing in a course (preventing them from working too fast or too far ahead, for example), we’ve adjusted what happens when students reach the end of a lesson in CS Discoveries and CS Principles to further help teachers manage classroom pacing!

Students who reach the end of most lessons in these courses, will first see this pop-up telling them they've reached the end of the lesson:

Upon clicking "Finish", they'll be redirected back to the Unit Overview page (instead of being automatically sent to the next lesson), such as at studio.code.org/s/csd3-2021 for CSD Unit 3's overview page. They'll be prompted to check-in with their teacher for next steps:

We hope this change will alleviate issues we've seen feedback about, where students arefrequently working ahead without our site telling them they're at the end of a lesson, causing some scattered amounts of progress in a classroom. As always, if you have any questions or feedback about this change, please reach out to support@code.org!
