Design a learning path with activity completion


Introduction

Activity completion has been explained in Unit 1, Book 1.2.2 part 2.1. In this book, we will focus on using activity completion to monitor practice and assessment.

Activity completion needs to be allowed on the course level before you can use it in an activity settings. When it is enabled, you will see an Activity Completion section when you edit the Settings of an activity.

Why use Activity Completion?

It is a helpful way for students to be able to track their progress in a course. It provides the student with a checklist of what they have done so far. Activity completion can also be linked to Course Completion in order to allow both students and teachers to track progress through a course. As each activity is checked off as "complete", the student moves further towards final completion of the course.
It can also be linked to Restrict Access in order to allow the teacher to set criteria upon which a student is allowed to progress through a course and access materials. For example, an activity could appear only when a previous activity, for example a quiz, has reached a minimum score. Using Activity Completion and Restrict Access at the same time, a teacher can build a learning path for students.
