Progress Tracking

Decide whether you would like to Turn on Progress Tracking.

Progress Tracking allows students to keep track of which items they have viewed, giving them the option to “mark as read” an item they have opened.

It is also possible for instructors to see the how many students have opened, marked as complete or submitted to the item.
