Learn@UW - Using Content completion tracking and viewing class and user progress

Completion tracking enables instructors to set the method of completion for an activity and provides progress indicators for students as they complete course activities.

Default Completion Method: 

Full instructions on how to set the default completion method can be found in Learn@UW - Content Display Settings
  • Automatic Completion  Completion tracking that automatically determines whether users have completed a topic when they click on a topic to view it. For some activities, automatic tracking requires users to participate in a chat or discussion, submit a file or form, or complete an assessment such as a quiz or survey before completion is successful.
  • Manual Completion  Completion tracking that is manually set by users. Users can select the completion check box beside each content topic to indicate they have completed the topic. Although users can use manual tracking to indicate that they have accomplished a task before it is completed (e.g. selecting the completion check box beside a quiz activity before attempting the quiz at all), this does not affect assessment scores or user attempts counted towards an activity.
Note:  Changing an automatically tracked topic to manual completion resets completion tracking for that topic. This means that users might have to return to the topic to mark it complete; users do not need to resubmit files or assessment activities.

Modify the completion tracking method for a topic or module

  1. Do one of the following:
    • On the Table of Contents page, locate the topic you want to edit.
    • Click on the module that contains the topic you want to edit from the Table of Contents.
    • Click on the module you want to edit from the Table of Contents, then click Set all completion methods from the More Actions button.
  2. Select one of the following from the topic's completion tracking drop-down list:
    • Automatic Completion
    • Manual Completion
    • No Completion Tracking

Viewing class progress and user progress for Content

You can view general information about completion tracking for all users from the Class Progress page, or you can view a specific user's completion tracking from the Content Progress page.

Each user's Content Progress page indicates how many visits they make to the Content tool, how much time they spend viewing course material, and how many topics they have visited. Expand the report details under each module to find a further breakdown of a user's actions. The expanded details show all topics and sub-modules within the module, how many visits the user made for each topic, and how much time was spent in each topic. Clicking on the module or topic's name will bring you to that module or topic in the Content tool.
