Admin mark activity/course as complete for a student
 

Hey guys, am I being really dumb or is it not currently possible for an Admin to mark an Activity (not a manual completion Activity) or Course as complete for a student?

I've searched all over and can't find a straight answer.

I've seen that it can be done by editing the DB but that's not really an option as our site is provided by an external supplier.

Surely I'm not the only one who needs to do this via the UI?

Am I just searching for the wrong question - I've tried all variations of the subject of this post.

Thanks in advance!

You are not the only one wanting this feature but it is not available as yet.

Hey Emma,


Thanks for your reply. I'm glad I'm not going mental - I would have thought that this would be a standard thing!?

??? surely if you can set in completion settings manual completion by various roles there must be some way of marking users has having completed. What am I missing?

You're missing Moodle 3.4 - the feature for teachers to mark activities complete on behalf of their students comes with that (scheduled on Nov 13)

Hi Mary,

Where can I find the feature for teachers to mark activities on behalf of students ? 

I have looked https://docs.moodle.org/34/en/Managing_activities with no success.

This is what I am trying to do - any help would be appreciated.

I am using Moodle 3.4.3

I have a course with 5 tests.

Each test is marked as complete when the student has passed the test.

The tests are the only items shown on the Completion Progress block which I am using on the course. 

I am importing 2000 student grades into a course.

I want to find a way of setting these students progress to match their grades, as a last resort I will need the time to manually input this data.

Many thanks

Bill

Thank you Mary,

I see I can download the activity completion report to Excel.

Is there anyway of modifying the Excel data and then uploading it?

If this requires an update to 3.5 then thats fine.

Can't you log in as the student (Log_in_as) and complete the activity for them?

Or if you need to edit the DB and no access, is there an SQL plugin you could use so that you can change DB entries via the UI?

Hey Gareth,

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I could log in as them and complete the activity but it's a SCORM package that takes about 20 minutes to complete (plus, I'd have to know the correct answers to complete the quiz!). There's a few students that I need to complete it for so that's not really an option.

Regarding editing the DB from the UI - any ideas what the plugin is called as I've had a quick search and can't see anything obvious.

Cheers!

Are there any plans to put such a functionality in place? It seems extremely odd that this would not have been a built in feature from the start.

I thought I had seen this on a future feature list somewhere, maybe in 3.3?..definitely needed...

Thank you. That's helpful. However, in the short term, is there a way to perhaps do this manually through the database for several students?

Hi -

I am also looking for a way I can mark an activity complete for multiple students at one time. Have you found a solution for this?

Thanks for the response. The link you posted is good to know, however, I have a large number of students that I need to fast track to course completion. I was hoping there would be a way I could perform this operation in bulk.
