    @Chaitanya - first thing is to make sure that Completion tracking is enabled at site level (Administration > Advanced Features > Enable Completion Tracking. You then need to ensure it is enabled at course level, go into the Course Settings to turn this on if necessary, you then need to have some activities or resources set up to be trackable. If you do, then boxes will appear on right hand side which get ticked once complete - it is these ticks that the Completion Progress bar picks up (the exception is assignments, which behave slightly oddly where if you set completion based on achievement of a grade, the ticks on right will mark a non-passed assignment as complete, but the Completion Progress bar correctly recognises a non-pass assignment as not being a pass. In terms of the overview of students button this should be default for the editing teacher and non-editing teacher role.

    Hi, all.

    Yes, it does work on the Site home and Dashboard pages and shows students a combined view of all the Completion Progress blocks from courses that use this block.

    You can add the block, but if it is being removed, you may want to make changes to the permissions for editing the Dashboard.

    Hi, all.

    I've added grouping functions to the instance settings and to the Overview page. I hope this helps those people who were requesting it.

    Hi Michael
    Is there any chance you could the functionality for the colour to change back to yellow instead of staying red if a student has not passed the first attempt of an assignment and the teacher has given them another attempt? At the moment once the teacher grades it as not passed it stays red until they pass even though the teacher has given them another attempt and the student has submitted again but is still awaiting the teacher to grade it again.

    Hi, All.

    Michelle: Unfortunately, the judgement of completion on assignment attempts is controlled by the completion system, so I can't affect that. Perhaps it could be reported as a core bug. The block does look at the latest attempt when considering submissions separately to completion. Have you tried the block's new groupings functionality yet? It would be good to get your feedback.

    Ricardo: Thanks for reporting that bug. I've fixed that with a few others in the latest release.

    Could you please add a to your plugin? We're currently upgrading from Moodle 3.2.x to Moodle 3.5.x and it would be very helpful if there was a easily digestible changelog which would describe fixes, new features or other changes.

    Hi, Daniel.

    I do try to keep a list of changes through Git. You can see this using the "git log" command.

    We have courses with thousands of students, and would like to have a search feature on the overview page. Is there one in the works? The selection of the firstname / lastname letter would also help.

    Hi Michael,

    I have set up a quiz with an essay (this needs manual grading). The activity completion is set to "Requires a Grade" to be marked complete.
    The quiz activity is attempted but not yet graded. Unlike the assignment activity which turns yellow when submitted, the quiz remains in blue. Shouldn't the quiz also turn yellow when attempted but not yet graded?
    Is this due to the activities behave differently (meaning you 'submit' an assignment but 'attempt' a quiz)? Your help is much appreciated.

    Kind Regards,

    Hello Michael!

    I have been using this exceptional tool to help us track student's progress. Thanks for this plugin! I am wondering, Is there a way to have the progress report of one particular student, where you can see what has the student done and what is yet to be completed?

    We have users enrolled in several courses within different categories and I was wondering if there is a way to have this type of report.

    Thanks in advance,

    Hello Michael,
    Thanks for developping this plug in. We use it in our school in Switzerlandand it is very much appreciated by the students. I have one question, though. Can the "progress bar" be used with Moodle App ? One of my students is very upset that the progress bar of the Moodle platform (web) and the one (with %) displayed in the Moodle App don't show the same result. I've been reading all the posts I found in the Moodle forums and I haven't found any explanation about the "native progress bar" existant in the courses of the Moodle App. I guess that one (the latter) is related to ALL the ressources and activities of the course, and not only to some "chosen" activities (as the ones we decided to set on the progress bar - plugin). So the source of the data is simply not the same !
    Could you tell me if I'm right ? Or if the answer is different ?
    Thank you thank you thank you !!! (in advance)

    Hi All, I installed the Completion Progress plugin. It works great with the box changing yellow when an assignment is submitted. If it is marked unsatisfactory it changes red as expected however when they resubmit it stays red. I was expecting it to change to yellow when the student resubmits. It this how it works or it there something wrong with my install?

    Many thanks!

    Hi, all.

    Samuli: I used to have name filtering, but it's cumbersome and hard to coordinate with the group filtering. I'll think about returning that, perhaps when there are a large number of students.

    J: With a bit of code tweaking, you could put the block on the Profile page to show the student's progress across courses. It's not designed for that at present.

    Andres: The progress shown on the Dashboard and mobile app are core features and independent of the Completion Progress block. They're not as configurable.

    Nigel: This is a problem, at least in recent versions. There is a contributed fix, but I haven't tested or incorporated that in the released version yet. Hopefully I'll get time for that soon.
