Enable completion tracking

Completion tracking is a topic-wide setting that allows you select a 'completion' option for the items in your site. When completion tracking is turned on, you have the option to activate it for the activity or tool. Even with completion tracking turned on, items have it set to off, so you have to manually enable it for each item where it makes sense to do so.

If you do choose completion tracking for an item, you will be prompted to choose whether:

  • students can manually mark the activity as complete (students see a box to tick when they have finished with that item)
  • show activity as complete when conditions are met (select conditions and dates that apply)

Activity completion can also be used to trigger the reveal of new items when the conditions are met. Contact your eLearning support team if you are unsure how to administer this.

Example: Students are required to post into a forum, and to comment on someone else's post, within a certain timeframe (conditional)
