Learn@UW - Viewing Progress of your Students Enrolled in a Course

An instructor can view the overall progress of all students enrolled in a course through the "Class Progress" tool or a detailed progress of an individual student through the "User Progress" tool.

Some options for controlling the display of "User Progress" are also available.
