The 'Completion progress' block is a time management tool for students. The block is fully customisable to show students what activities/resources are required within a topic. This may be summative or formative tasks, or a combination of tasks. The colour
coded block shows students what they have and haven't done to complete/view required tasks with an expected due date. Teaching staff can see an overview of students' progress using the same colour code system by accessing the student overview (see
below) or using the completion tracking Activity Completion report.
The completion progress block may be used for a range of purposes, such as:
for self-directed learning of a new topic or module or series of tasks;
for enabling self-paced tracking in a topic and/or module;
to provide students with guided requirements for learning activity(ies) and resources;
for targeting preparation for assessment or class attendance;
The completion progress block is adaptable for summarising required activities and content to students in an interactive and visual way. It also provides staff with a quick means of visualising how students are tracking through the topic.
