Module Completion Tracker

The Need:

Current module tracker has generic "Complete all items".  This could be a handy completion tracker for students and teachers.  The tracker keeps track of how many items in each module that the student has successfully completed.

 

My Custom Solution:

I "hacked" together a custom solution that looks for the green "completion check mark icon".  It counts how many of those green checks there are in a module and uses that number for a completion tracker in the header of the module.

 

This tracker automatically updates as students complete items in the module.

 

Note:

For this to work, the items in your module must have some type of "completion criteria set".  For example, if it's a quiz, it needs a passing grade assigned to it.  If it's a content page item, you must have the "view" criteria set on it.

 

 

 

Installation:

You need access to your custom Javascript file. Paste the code below into that file.

Note: I have my instance of Canvas running on jquery 3.x+.  Canvas by default runs on jquery 1.x. I'm not 100% sure at the moment if this would work on a default instance of Canvas.  Can someone verify?
