Progress Tracking is only available in the Ultra Course View. You can enable the Review Status for an individual item, file, or assessment which adds a Mark as Reviewed button that students can click to track their progress, but it must be enabled individually. There also is not an automated way for progress to be marked.
Progress Tracking provides a way for students to monitor their own progress through their coursework.
To enable progress tracking:
Once enabled, every item (content and assessments) will be displayed with a circle icon. The icons are empty when a student has not yet access the item, partially filled when they have opened it, and filled with a checkmark when they have completed the item.
For content, like Documents, uploaded files, or links, the student can manually mark the item complete once they have opened it. For items that require participation or submissions, like Assignments, Tests, Discussions, and Journals, the item will be automatically marked complete when the student has made a submission.
When all items in a Folder or Module have been completed, the entire folder is automatically marked as complete.
At this time, student progress is only visible to students. In the future, Blackboard will add the ability for faculty to view and monitor their students' progress.
