How do I track student progress in a course?

You will learn how to add requirements to your course Modules, so that you can track the progress of individual students and they can in turn view their own progress in the course.

Being able to monitor your students' progress in your course and allowing students to monitor their own progress can let you see at a glance whether some students are lagging behind or have missed certain assignments, readings, videos, quizzes, discussions, etc.

1. Set up requirements for your Modules.

Adding requirements to your Modules will allow you to more closely track your students' progress. Plus, it also allows them to more closely track their own progress.
