Checking the version number of a unit

Sometimes you may need to check the version number of a unit, or when it was most recently updated. This can be important for a number of reasons, such as checking for version number matches between learners.

As of our new Certify releases (starting in October 2023), unit release information is being included by default in the Supporting info section of our units. Customised and MyCatapult units will also have this information included as well.

The Release information page will include a product version number and the date that the unit was most recently released to the LMS.

Another option, available for all units, is the ability to "hover" over their unit code to display their internal version;

The first part of this code is the "internal version type". Any version starting with "A20" includes assessments that have been pushed from the Edify system. Other version types - most commonly "A19" - are earlier unit versions.

The second part indicates the current version number, with the first number showing the "major" iteration and the second number showing the "minor" iteration.

To use the above example, this unit has had two "major" versions, as indicated by the v2. Then, this major version has also had a number of minor iterations, as indicated by the .2 - in this case, there has been three minor iterations, as the first one is always ".0".

Note that whenever a minor iteration is released, all enrolments in the same "major version" are automatically upgraded. So if a "v2.3" was released, all students in v2.2 (and v2.1 and v2.0) will automatically be moved into the newest version. However, any students enrolled in v1.0 will stay there. Similarly, if a "v3.0" is released, all existing enrolments will be unaffected, because this is a whole new major version of the unit.
