Activity Completion: Marked Complete when Conditions are Met

Completion tracking must be enabled for this option to be available.

This feature is ideal for Forums, Assignments, Quizzes, and other interactive activities. It can also be applied to read-only resources to ensure a student views a file, page, URL, or book.

You may also consider using the honor system and letting students check off their own progress.

Locate the item where you want to track completion.

If Editing is turned on, click the Edit menu (three vertical dots) and click the Edit Settings option.


Click into the activity or resource and from the Secondary navigation click the Settings link.

Expand the Activity completion section.

Change of the value of Completion tracking to Show activity as complete when conditions are met.

Choose the conditions you wish to set. Below are some examples of different types of conditions you can set for specific Activities and Resources:

NOTE: If you don’t have a due date set on your activity or resource, you may wish to enable and set the Expect completed on date. This won’t prevent students from completing beyond that date but will post a reminder on the Timeline and Calendar found on the Dashboard.
