Educators benefit from knowing how students are progressing through the learning material, so they can identify and offer support to any learners that are falling behind. Students also need a way to capture their progress as they work through the materials and tasks within them.
We then introduce a "Mark as complete" feature on all material pages so students can see what they've done and where they are in their journey. As an Educator, you can see each student's progress in the Engagement Analytics, in terms of what the student has marked as complete.
The screenshot below shows what a student sees in their overview: the complete and the yet-to-complete materials within sections and pages.
When a student is viewing materials in Journey on the web, they can click on the View progress overview button at the top of the Materials column on the left to go to the list of sections and pages complete/ yet to complete.
This is what their overview looks like on the web:
Important: this feature will be available in the mobile app from January 4th, 2024.
This is what their overview looks like on the mobile app:
How a Student Marks/Unmarks as Complete
- Click on the Mark as complete button at the top right of the screen.
- The button will turn to a green Step complete one.
If a student marked content as complete by mistake or wants to revisit it later, they can click on the green Step complete button again, and it will be unmarked.
Please note that the analytics are based on what students have marked as complete themselves. It's not possible to guarantee that the students really read, watched, listened to or understood the content.
Here's what changes in the Engagement tab:
- There's a new column showing the percentage of students who have marked materials as done/complete.
- There's a column showing the percentage of materials marked as done/complete per student.
- Another column shows the most recent date a specific page was marked as done/complete by a specific student.
Q1: What happens when I release new materials?
New materials will be displayed as content students still haven't completed. If a section formerly had the green tick, but you released new materials within it, then the green tick in the section will disappear because now students have new content to study in that section. Once they mark it as complete, it'll be green again.
Q2: Can students view their classmates' progress? Can they view their own progress on spaces they're not enroled in?
A: No and no. Students can only view their own progress, never someone else's. And students can only view their progress in spaces they're currently enroled in. If they were removed from a space, they can no longer view their progress in it.
Q3: In the progress calculation on the overview page, and on the engagement analytics reports, which pages are taken into account when calculating the progress?
A: Only visible pages are included in the calculation - so hidden or scheduled pages that have not been published yet will not be included.
Q4: Do I have to enable the Mark as Complete button in my materials?
A: No. The button is displayed by default, and doesn't require any additional effort from educators.
