Tracking Your Learners’ Progress through MOODLE

One of the most useful features of MOODLE LMS is the activity completion tracking system. It enables the training manager to check the course completion status of the learner. By default, it is not enabled.

To enable this feature, you need to follow the below steps.

1. Go to site administration block and click advanced features. Then, check the Enable Completion Tracking option.

Enable Completion Tracking option

2. Then, go to Courses option in the Site Administration. In it, click Course Default Settings and set course completion tracking option as Yes.

3. Then, go to Course edit settings and enable the completion tracking option there.

See the following screenshot.

4. Course Activity Settings:

Every activity has an option for completion tracking, so that you can set the completion status as per your requirement. Here are the default options.

  • Do not indicate activity completion
  • Students can manually mark the activity as completed
  • Show activity as complete when conditions are met.


Please see the following screenshot for activity completion.

5. For every course, you need to check for its activity and whether it is enabled or not. All activities must be enabled.

See the following screenshot.

Once you complete the above 5 steps, you need to cross check Cronjob whether it is running properly. Usually, the Cronjob will run every 5 minutes or 10 minutes.

Finally, the LMS administrator can see the course completion status of learners who have enrolled into the course.

Go through the below navigation to get information about all enrolled users.

All Participants

Here, you can view all enrolled users and all course activities that you enabled for completion tracking.

If the user completes an activity, then you can see a tick mark besides the activity, and if the user completes all the activities, then you can see that the last column i.e. course complete is ticked.
