Completion tracking allows the instructor to set certain completion criteria for an activity or resource within a course. A check appears to the right of the activity/resource when the student meets these criteria. A criterion might be viewing a resource, receiving a certain score, or a student manually marking something as complete.
Activity Completion must be selected in both the course settings and each individual activity setting for the check box, either manually marked or automatically marked, to appear.
After turning on Completion Tracking for a course, any new resource or activities you add to the course site will default to have completion tracking turned on. It is good practice to check the completion tracking settings for each new item as you add it to the course site.
