  • Track your Progress with Checklist
Skip to end of metadata
Go to start of metadata

The Moodle Checklist allows a lecturer to create a checklist for their students to work through. Students should tick off each item on the list, as they complete it. The resulting progress can be tracked by the lecturer. As a student, you can view your own progress on the progress bar which shows how far through the checklist you have managed to get.

Other features include:

  • List of items you should complete, with the option to include module activities and resources in that section or the whole module, and / or manual items
  • Checklist items can be ticked off by Students only, Lecturers only, or both
  • Students can add their own items and notes to a checklist
  • Lecturers can set due dates for checklist items


 How to View your Progress

You will see either a Checklist activity or block or both in your module.

Checklist activityChecklist block

In the Checklist block, you will see the progress bar move along as when you complete your checklist activities.

If you click on the Checklist activity, you will see the actual % of progression. If there are compulsory and optional activities in your checklist, you will see two progress bars showing the breakdown.


 How to Tick off Checklist items

If allowed, students can tick off any items they have completed manually.

To do this, click on the checklist activity on the module homepage. You will see a complete list of tasks included in the checklist activity.

  • Tasks displaying in black are required (compulsory) items. Tasks displaying in grey and italics are optional items.
  • If the checklist is set up so that both student and lecturer can tick off checklist items, you will see two sets of checkboxes for each item. The left one is for your lecturer, the right one is for you to tick off the item. Note: both you and your lecturer have to tick off an item in order to mark the task as complete.
  • If the checklist is set up only for students to tick off checklist items, you will only see one set of checkboxes for each item.


Sometimes your lecturers may choose not to allow students to tick off items manually. Once you have completed the required tasks, the system will automatically update the checklist. In this case, when you hover over the checkboxes, you will see the forbidden red icon and you will not be able to edit the checkboxes.

 How to add Own Items

If allowed, students can add their own manual item(s) to the checklist.

To do this,

  • Click on the checklist activity on the module homepage.
  • Click the button Add your own items.

  • Click the Add iconAdd a new item to the list above where you want to add your new item.

  • Enter the name and description (optional) of your item. Then click Add.

  • Click Stop adding your own items.
