The Progress Tracker gives an overview of students' progress in all of your sections, including coding activities, assignments and quizzes. You can use these tools to get a birds-eye view of student progress or zoom in on modules, lessons, and more!

With Progress Tracker, you can view progress by:

  • Assignment

Assignment Progress

Student Assignment Progress is shown using our color-coded Grading Key for each assignment.

Using the Grading Key

The grading key is a simple way to gauge your students submissions and grading status for assignments:

  • Finalized / Teal: the student’s grade for the assignment has been graded and finalized

  • Submitted After Review / Dark Magenta: the student resubmitted the assignment after it was reviewed by the teacher

  • Reviewed / Pink: the student's assignment has been submitted, reviewed by the teacher, but isn't fully correct and was sent back to the student with the status message Needs Work

  • Submitted / Green:  the assignment was successfully submitted and either passed the test cases (if Autograded) or is ready for review by the teacher

  • Not Submitted / Yellow: the assignment was opened or started but not submitted

  • Unopened / Grey: students have not opened this assignment.

Lesson Progress

The Lesson Progress tool allows you to view progress by status or percentage for each Lesson.

  • View Lesson Progress by percentage complete by clicking Percent.

  • To view Lesson Progress by status, click on Status.

Quiz Scores

The Quiz Scores page displays student scores for all quizzes in a Section. You can also click on the name of a quiz to see data showing which students answered specific questions correctly. Learn more about Viewing Quiz Scores Data.

Time Tracking

The Time Tracking tool displays how long students have spent on an assignment. Time tracking shows completed assignments, assignments in progress, and unopened assignments.

How is time calculated?

As soon as the Code Editor loads, Time Tracking begins for students. The tracker records every increment of 5 seconds that the student is active. Students become idle after 30 seconds of not moving their mouse or typing.
