Easy Way to See User Progress in Blackboard

If you want to see if a student has reviewed content in your Blackboard course, you need to look at the User Progress tool. 

I have to admit, this has been a recent discovery, one that would have made this task much easier. Instead, we have been having faculty look at various reports.

User Progress

When you create a piece of content and added to Blackboard or add an assignment, you want to know if students can (a) access it and (b) if they accessed it. The User Progress tool provides you with both pieces of information.

However, you will have to make some adjustments to your course. For the User Progress tool to work, you will need to turn on Review Status for each item.

Turning on Review Status

  1. Navigate in your course to the item for which you want to enable the review status.
  2. Click on the item menu just to the right of the item name.
  3. Select Set Review Status menu item.
  4. Ensure the Enable radio button is checked.
  5. Click the Submit button.

Access the User Progress Tool

  1. Navigate in your course to the item for which you want to enable the review status.
  2. Click on the item menu just to the right of the item name.
  3. Select User Progress menu item.

The Visibility column lets you know whether the students can access the content or not.

The Reviewed column will show you if the student checked the Review button for the item.

Marking the item as reviewed.

If you do not see the Reviewed column, it means you did not enable it. You should enable Review Status before students access the content.

If you have questions about this tool, please contact a member of the TEI team.
