Using the 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.

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.
