Student Progress Report in Ultra

This guide pertains to Ultra Course View.

If your course is in Original Course View, see the Original Course View tutorial collection.


Student Progress Overview

Instructors often desire insight into the progress students are making in their course. Knowing this helps instructors to engage early with students or adjust course content as needed.  The Single Student Progress Report focuses on the path each student is taking on the course with date/time stamps and the visibility of each item. In this report instructors can view:

  • The content they have created for their students
  • The progress the student has made with relevant date/time stamps
  • The current visibility status of each item

This report is only available when Progress Tracking is turned on in the course Progress Tracking is on by default in all course shells.

Instructors can access this report:

  • By selecting a single student from the Student Progress report on a content item
  • By selecting a single student from the Gradebook list view, Students tab, Student Progress tab
  • By selecting a single student from the Gradebook grid view, Student Progress tab

When grading anonymously, the student progress status is hidden until the instructor posts grades. This ensures the student’s identity remains anonymous during the grading process.

Progress Icon Explanation

Each content item within a module and the module itself is classified by a progress circle icon that indicates the student progress.  The various circle icons are:

  • Empty when a student had not yet accessed the item
  • Partially filled when a student has opened the item
  • Green checkmark when the student has completed the item

Students can mark complete items like Documents, uploaded files, or links once they have opened them. For any other items like Assessments, Tests, Journals, or Discussions, the item will automatically be marked as complete when the student has submitted. When all items in a Folder or Module have been completed, the entire folder is automatically marked as complete.
