Activity Completion is tool in LATTE that allows both the instructor and students to keep track of their progress in a course. Visually, this tools adds check-boxes along the right side of the course, indicating whether or not the student has completed the expected activities.
With Activity Completion enabled in the course, the instructor can add an Activity Completion check-box to any activity or resource in the course. Depending on the type of activity or resource, an Activity Completion check-box may be set up to be checked manually or when certain conditions are met.
Activity Completion is enabled in all new LATTE courses by default. However, if it has been disabled, you can enable it in your course settings.
Once Activity Completion is enabled in the course, every activity and resource on your course page can also have Activity Completion enabled or disabled. By default, Activity Completion is disabled on new and existing activities and resources, so to get a completion check-box next to any activity, you will need to enable it in that activity's settings.
The Students can manually mark the activity as completed option in the Activity Completion settings enables manual completion tracking for that activity. In this tracking mode, students can check the box whenever they feel ready to do so. This can be a good option for readings or other activities the student might revisit several times before deciding they are satisfied with their progress. It can also be used as an indicator for the instructor that the student has read and acknowledged some content or message on the course page.
This is the simplest completion tracking option, but you can also enable conditional tracking. Click the Conditional tab above to learn more.
Conditional completion tracking is enabled when the instructor chooses Show activity as complete when conditions are met and assigns at least one condition in an activity's Activity Completion settings. This means that the check-box next to the activity cannot be checked by the students themselves; instead, the LATTE system assigns a checkmark when it sees that the student has fulfilled the assigned conditions.
Here are a few examples of conditions that can be assigned using Activity Completion:
Instructors can view the Activity Completion Report to view their students' progress in the course based on the Activity Completion checkboxes they have created. Particularly when conditional completion tracking is used, this can be a very good way to keep an eye on the overall class progress and to zoom in on students who might be behind or places where the whole class might be struggling.
To view the Activity Completion report in a course, go to the Administration block and select Reports > Activity Completion.
