Activities: Checklist

Maintained by DavoDavo Smith
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.

General comments

This is a tool (mod, block and gradebook) to help teachers define a checklist that students can manually check off. It's has similar functionality to completion with manual checking, but is more isolated and simplified. Teachers can see a report and a block to keep track of student progress. It can feed into the gradebook.

No problems

Pretty extraordinary for an additional plugin
Keyboard accessible, no dynamic events

There is some overlap with the functionality of completion, but generally this is a completely self contained set of plugins.

General recommendation: A good choice to add for all sectors. Simple, obvious, useful and well maintained.
