Understanding User Progress

The User Progress tool helps you to keep track of student progression in a unit by measuring the completion of indicators like logins, grades and content visited. This is helpful for keeping track of students who may be struggling, or getting a quick view of all student grades.

Following are the steps to Understanding the User Progress:

 

Step One: Access User Progress


1. Click Toolbox from the main navigation bar and select User Progress

 

Toolbox tab - User progress

 

Step Two: Use the Class Progress Overview


The Class Progress screen will open now. This provides an overview of the students in your space, and you can see a list of all the students in the space sorted alphabetically by last name.

Tip: You can change the order in which the names appear by clicking Last name, First name and selecting an option from the drop-down menu. You can also Search users using the search field in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.

Next to each student's name, there is an overview. Content indicates what the student has visited in the space. If you are using objectives in your space, Objectives will indicate which ones have been met by this student. Logins will show the number of times that a student has logged in to VU Collaborate. You can also view the Grades for that student.

Note: Logins does not count the number of times that a student has accessed the unit space, only logins to VU Collaborate itself.

Step Three: Viewing Individual Student Progress


1. Click on a student's name to view the User Progress for that particular student. A Progress Summary will appear. All of the grades received, completed quizzes and surveys, and much more can be viewed here.  Note that login history refers to all logins for VU Collaborate, and Course Access refers to logins to the specific unit that you are looking into; both are for the prior 30 days.

2. To access more details, select a category from the left-hand side menu. You cannot change any of these items directly, only view progress.

3. Once you're finished viewing progress for this student, click Class Progress to go back to the main progress screen and select another student or click on the backward and forward arrows beside the student number to go to the next or previous student in the Class list.
