Using the Completion Progress Block
Article Last Updated June 2021
The Completion Progress block in eClass gives students a visual indication of their progress through a course.
To display completion progress, completion tracking must be enabled in your course and set up for at least one activity or resource. For more details on completion tracking, please see our article on Completion Tracking.
To add the Completion Progress block to your course:
Each box represents an activity or resource in your course. When a user mouses-over each section of the bar, it provides the name, completion status, expected completion date, and a link to the corresponding activity. By default, items in the progress bar are ordered by expected completion date, unless a completion date is not set in which case they appear in the same order as they are listed within the course content. The NOW cursor indicates the current date relative to the expected completion dates of each activity.
The colors seen in the completion progress bar can be interpreted as follows:
Blue - Not yet completed.
Overview of students
Instructors can access an overview of student progress via the Overview of students button.
This view shows each student’s progress through the course as a completion bar and a percentage. Similar to the completion progress block, mousing-over a box will display which activity it corresponds to. This view also allows filtering by groups.
The progress bar’s settings can be modified by selecting the gear icon under Completion Progress and then clicking Configure Completion Progress block.
Details on most of these settings can be found by selecting the corresponding icon for an informative help bubble.
Using Multiple Completion Progress Blocks
Multiple Completion Progress blocks can be added to a single course. This allows you to display a visual representation of student progress through different sets of criteria (ie. Assignment progress, progress through each week, progress through each topic etc) using different progress bars.
