The short slideshow below provides some helpful examples of how the activities covered in this guide can help you to check on students engagement and achievement.
Activity Completion tracking
Course completion provides an advanced level of tracking and needs careful consideration and set up before the start of the term. It not only provides useful data on students engagement in the modules but can also provide students with useful learning data too.
If you have turned on completion tracking in your module you will see check (tick) boxes appear against your resources and activities. Those check boxes help you easily track a student’s progress and identify potential areas of concern. Completion Tracking can also provide your students a linear guided progression through the module making it particularly useful for student led learning.
Restrict Access (Conditional activities) Option
Restrict access is an advanced feature in Moodle and can be used to set students on a specific pathway through the module. Teachers can restrict access to an activity or resource by setting conditions such as dates (e.g. the resource or activity is only available to access on the date you specify), achieving a particular score on another activity (e.g. Quiz, Assignment, Checklist etc.) or a particular resource or activity needs to be completed.
Once the condition(s) have been met, the resource or activity would be available to access. This features can be used to guide student progression through a module.
In the example here, the Turnitin assignment submission is restricted and a condition has been set, hence it is greyed-out. There is a note to advise the students what to do to be able to access the Turnitin assignment. The condition is that students would need to complete the Checklist above in order to access the Turnitin assignment submission.
