TEL me about... Tracking Student Engagement and Progress

Moodle offers a variety of options for enhancing student engagement & tracking progress, including Grades, Conditional Activities, Activity Completion, Course Completion, Open Badges, Course Reports, and Progress Bar & Engagement Analytics plugins. This workshop will look at some of the ways these can be implemented in Moodle.

"Access, retention, attainment and progression in and beyond education are all components of student success. Success in each of these areas depends on the extent to which students are engaged, and their belonging is fostered within their programme and wider institution, across the whole student lifecycle." (HEA, 2016)

The gradebook collects items that have been graded from the various parts of Moodle that are assessed, and allows you to view and change them as well as sort them out into categories and calculate totals in various ways. Conditional Activities enable tutors to restrict the availability of any activity or even a course section according to certain conditions such as dates, grade obtained, or activity completion. Activity Completion allows the tutor to set completion criteria in a specific activity’s settings. A check (tick) completion-manual-y.png appears against the activity when the student meets this criterion, which might be viewing, receiving a certain score or a student marking it as complete. Course Completion shows if a course has been completed. It can show the progress a student is making towards finishing the course according to specific criteria. Open Badges are a good way of celebrating achievement and showing progress. Moodle contains four standard Course Reports: Logs, Activity Report, Participation Report and Statistics. The Progress Bar is a time-management tool for you and your students. It shows progress in activities/resources and is colour coded. An overview page shows tutors the progress of all students and combined progress. The Engagement Analytics block provides information about student progress against a range of indicators.
