We use the module progressions to see if students have completed lesson modules. We would like to be able to do the reverse. Is there a way to look at a module (published or unpublished) and see a list of student progress in that module?
This functionality is not built into Canvas. Looking at the REST API, which is one of the tools that developers use when functionality isn't in the web interface, I see that it supports obtaining module completion status, but only for one student at a time. That means that code would need to be written that would get a list of students in the course and then iterate through that list, getting the progress for each student and compiling it into a usable format.
It turns out that Jaap Stelpstra has already done that and made it available as an Excel spreadsheet: Automated progress report of students in modules
