The Checklist is a Plugin Feature Available in Moodle

Creating a checklist in Moodle is a great organization tool used to monitor projects. A checklist can be created by a teacher (or generated from the activities in a course) and then the students or teachers can check-off each item as they are completed. Watch this video that demonstrates creating a checklist in Moodle.


How Teachers View Student Checklist Progress

The Checklist is a a plugin feature available in Moodle 2.0 . This plugin must be installed by your Moodle administrator. The settings allow control by  student, teacher or auto check off.

As a teacher when you click on View Progress, the “Table” view appears. For this example, student names have been blocked out in the left-most column.

When you click on Show progress bars in the Table view, you will see the following progress bars display:

When you click on the magnifying glass by an individual’s name, you will see a list of the individual’s items. As a teacher you may click in the Add comments to add your own comment after any checklist item.
