Tracking Course Progress of Students in Moodle – The Edwiser Way

Consistency Always Leads to Excellence. Whatever You Do, Always Be Consistent.


A thought that you might have come across often. A thought that makes so much sense, be it any situation.

And of course, who would understand this best, but you, being a teacher! 

If there’s anything that matters the most once a student starts off with his courses, it is the consistency in learning. To make sure your students don’t miss out on the consistency, your students should feel you’re right there for them.

One way of achieving this is by keeping a constant track of how they are faring in their courses. 


Why Tracking Course Progress is Important

#1 Staying Updated

To be in a position where you can assess & analyze your students’ progress, it is important for you to be aware of where your student stands. By being on the same page, not only would you be able to understand their state better, but you will also be able to build a healthy rapport with them. 


#2 Deciding Further Action Plan

Let me remind you that Learning is a Journey, never a destination. 

Every time a learner crosses a milestone, he needs to be aware and prepared of the road ahead. 

Being aware of the course progress of your learner will help you decide further action plan for them.


#3 Damage Prevention Mode

In the above point, we talked about deciding the action plan for the future. 

However, there is always a possibility of some students not being able to perform well enough. Even worse, they can end up losing interest and dropping out. 

It is important for you to stay on top of the performance of underperforming students as well.

Now that we have discussed the importance of tracking course progress, let’s look at… 


How You Can Track Course Progress on Moodle  

I would be lying if I say you can’t track course progress on Moodle.

But doing so is not the most convenient things to do. Moreover, there isn’t a dedicated all-in-one solution for tracking course progress of students. 

You can either track activity completion status or course completion status, among other alternatives. However, these ways of tracking don’t give you a bigger & more accurate picture of individual student progress.

Wouldn’t you love it if you had an easier way of tracking course progress?

Introducing the Course Progress Block, available as a part of the Pro plan of Edwiser RemUI theme.

While coming up with this block, we kept in mind all the challenges that you, as a teacher, would come across. Let’s look at how the Course Progress Block solves all such problems!


Using the Edwiser RemUI Course Progress Block 

You can find the Course Progress Block as you scroll down your dashboard. 

As you can see in the image below, this block has all the courses that you manage displayed in a table, along with some interesting stats. You can also check the average percentage completion of your courses.

Now you might be wondering, what if you want to check the stats for a particular course? The Course Progress Block lets you view the course progress of each student in that course!

All you need to do is click on the course you want to dive deeper into. Let’s take the “English Language and Literature” course, as an example.

Now there might arise scenarios where you might want to connect to a student to express your concern or even give feedback.

The Quick Messaging facility, as a part of the Course Progress Block, makes it possible for you to instantly text your students. The best part about this feature is that all your messages are delivered directly into their Moodle messaging inbox.

Summing Up

The Course Progress Bar comes as a significant solution to the headaches of Student Progress Tracking. 

By always staying on top of how your courses are faring, and how your students are engaging with your courses, it helps you decide the road ahead. 

Not only does it give you a good idea of student engagement, but it also helps you identify possible dropout cases well in advance.

    Hey folks, love the course progress block. Would it be possible for admins or managers to see course progress rather than just teachers?

      Hi Scott!

      Thank you so much!

      And yes, we can achieve that, but with customizations. I’ll send you an email with more info. Could you confirm your email ID please?
