As a facilitator you can track your learners progress from the class screen.

When facilitating a course, it is important to be able to keep track of where your learners are at.

Learner progress can be tracked from Class (for legacy activity and assessment) in iQualify.

Here you'll see a list of all learners in the course. You have a range of options to filter and sort learners.

The progress percentage increments each time the learner visits a content page in the course for the first time, or completes an activity. To get to 100% a learner must have visited every page, and completed every activity. (Note: Progress in legacy courses is calculated independent of assessments).

In Class (for legacy activity and assessment courses)

Click on an individual learner to be taken to a page where you can see their engagement charts for that learner.

Understanding the Engagement charts

The engagement graph plots the number of times each learner has taken part in certain events (such as viewing a page or submitting an assessment) compared to the class average.

Events are grouped into three categories - Content, Assessment and Social.

You can view all or filter to only show active events. Active events are those which require the learner to actually do something for example submitting an activity or posting in a talk channel, compared to just viewing a page.

Note: The assessment category only applies for task courses. Engagement in legacy courses is based only on content and social events.

How is progress calculated

Legacy courses

In a legacy course pages and activities are given an expected completion time. This is done by the author creating the course. This generates an overall time allocation for each page which acts as a proxy for proportion completed.
As pages are viewed and activities completed and submitted, this time allocation is registered. This then contributes to the progress calculation.
The progress displayed is a percentage based on the sum of all the time allocation in the course for pages and activities.
For example, a page is worth 10 minutes and contains an activity worth 7 minutes. As a learner, if I simply view the page without submitting the activity I will be allocated page time - activity time, i.e. 10 - 7 = 3 minutes. Once I complete the activity, the activity time will then be added to my progress i.e. the additional 7 minutes.
Things that don't contribute to the progress calculation:

  • Externally hosted activities that are embedded into iQualify

  • Viewing embedded videos

  • In-page discussions

  • Activity in talk channels
