In this course, author Chris Mattia helps educators create online courses that complement classroom-based instruction and foster student interaction using the free learning management system Moodle. The course details the basics of setting up a test environment, disseminating course information, creating forums, and assessing student progress. Tutorials on building course materials with Moodle's built-in HTML editor, preparing and posting various types of media, uploading assignments, and evaluating tests automatically are also included.
Now that we've logged in as some of our Users and we've clicked through a couple of our different activities, let's go ahead and look at how the reporting for completion tracking looks. To access it, make sure that Editing is turned on, and then scroll down in the right-hand side of the page, until you find the Add a block block, click the dropdown menu and select Course completion status. When the page refreshes, go ahead and scroll down to the Course completion status block, and click on the View course report. In the course report, we can see all of the different activities that we've turned tracking on for.
We can also see a listing of all of our students and check boxes next to the activities that they've completed. This gives us a very quick overview to see what students have completed, what items throughout our course? We can see that they're logging into our course and completing assignments on time, and we can also see those students who may need a little bit of extra prodding to be able to get them to go into the course and begin completing items. When the student has completed all of the items, then there is an option in the right-hand column to indicate when they have completed all of the activities within the course.
If you scroll down a little bit in the page, you can also see that you can download all of this information in a spreadsheet format, in either a comma separated file or an Excel-compatible format. Let's go ahead and return back to our course by clicking on the BIOL432 thing. The new completion tracking tools inside of Moodle 2 are incredibly powerful and will be very helpful to keep your students on track and up to date with all of their activities that they're working on throughout the course.
