Learning progress on the training home page

Introduction

When engaging with a course or training plan, enrolled users can see their progress in the Learning Progress section of the training home page. 

In this article, we explain how the progress in a course or training plan is calculated on the training home page.

 

Learning Progress for courses

In the Learning Progress section of a course home page, learners can track their progress in the course, the number of learning items they've completed compared with the total number of learning items in the course, their enrollment date, and the course completion date.

The Learning Progress calculation on the course home page:

 

Includes Excludes
    • quizzes

    • content packages

    • learning modules

    • assessments
    • attendance (for Instructor-Led Training only)

    • assignments


The Learning Progress calculation doesn't take into account whether learning items included in the calculation are set as required to complete the course. As a result, the learner's course progress calculation on the course home page differs from the progress that course and catalog admins can track in the LMS365 Admin Center. Attendance (for Instructor-Led Training courses only) and Assignments are included in the course progress calculation that can be tracked by course and catalog admins in the LMS365 Admin Center, from the Course Progress panel and the Learner's Progress panel.

 

Learning Progress calculation formula:

Add together the progress percentage of each learning item and divide it by the number of learning items in the Content section of the course (assignments and attendance aren't included).

Learning Progress shows how many of the items are completed out of the total number of items in the course (assignments and attendance aren't included). 

The progress percentage of each learning is displayed near each learning item in the Content section. The possible values are 0% and 100%.


EXAMPLE

The learner is enrolled in the course named "General Management". This is an Instructor-Led Training course and it consists of three learning items and two assignments. 

  • The Project Management item is a content package and it's in progress (0% progress).
  • The Management: Practical part item is a completed assessment (100% progress).
  • The Management Skills item is a quiz that's not been started (0% progress).
  • The Project Management assignment is completed (100% progress).
  • The Project Analysis assignment is completed (100% progress).

The course home page shows that the learner has completed the assessment and both assignments, and that they have started the content package.

 

 

On the course home page, the overall Learning Progress is calculated by adding together the progress percentage of each learning item and dividing this by the number of learning items in the course (excluding assignments and attendance). Learning progress also shows how many learning items are completed out of the total number of learning items in the course (assignments and attendance aren't included).

In our example, the calculation is: (0 + 100 + 0) / 3 = 33.3%. The number of passed items is 1 out of 3.

 

 

At the same time, course and catalog admins see a different course progress calculation for the learner in the LMS365 Admin Center. In the course progress panel, only learning items that are set as required for course completion are counted. In the following image, there are four learning items marked as required for course completion and these are marked with star icons. The calculation here is: (100 + 0 + 100 + 0) / 4 = 50%.

 

 

Later on, the learner completes the content package and the progress for it is 100%. Also, the learner has visited one course session.

 

 

On the course home page, the Learning Progress becomes: (100 + 100 + 0) / 3 = 66.7%. The number of passed items is 2 out of 3 and this has increased because of the completed content package. Session attendance isn't included in the calculation for Learning Progress.

 

 

At the same time, course and catalog admins see the following progress calculation for the learner in the course progress panel in the LMS365 Admin Center: (100 + 0 + 100 + 100) / 4 = 75%.

 

 

When learners complete all learning items set as required for course completion, the Completed status is displayed in the Learning Progress section of the course home page, as well as the enrollment and course completion dates.

 

 

Learning Progress for training plans

In the Learning Progress section of the training plan home page, learners can track their progress on the training plan, the number of courses they've completed compared with the total number of courses in the training plan, their enrollment date, completion status, and the training plan completion date.

The Learning Progress calculation doesn't take into account whether courses are set as required to complete the training plan. 

As a result, the calculation for the learner's training plan progress is different from the calculation that course and catalog admins can track in the LMS365 Admin Center from the Training Plan Progress dashboard and report and the Learner's Progress panel.

 

Learning Progress calculation formula:

Add together the progress percentage of each of the courses and divide it by the number of courses in the training plan in the Training Plan Courses section.

The course progress percentage is displayed near each course in the Training Plan Courses section. The possible values are 0%, 50%, and 100%.

 

EXAMPLE

The learner is enrolled in a training plan called "Customer Service Analysis", which consists of four courses:

  • The Basic details course is not started (50% progress).
  • The See You Customer course is completed (100% progress).
  • The Customer Analysis: Theory and Practice course is in progress (50% progress).
  • The Customer Service Analysis Skills course is locked (0% progress).

The overall Learning Progress is calculated by adding together the progress percentage of each of the courses and dividing by the number of courses in the training plan. For the example in the image below, the calculation is: (0 + 100 + 50 + 0) / 4 = 37.5%. The number of courses completed is 1 out of 4. 

 

 

At the same time, course and catalog admins see a different progress calculation in the training plan progress panel in the LMS365 Admin Center. Here, it counts courses that are set as required for training plan completion. In the image below, the calculation would be: (0 + 40 + 0) / 3 = 13.3%.

 

 

Later, the learner completes the Customer Analysis: Theory and Practice course and their progress is 100%. The Customer Service Analysis Skills becomes unlocked. On the training plan home page, the Learning Progress in the image below is calculated as: (0 +100 + 100 +0) / 4 = 50%. The number of passed items increases to 2 out of 4 because of the completed course.

 

 

At the same time, course and catalog admins see a different progress calculation in the training plan progress panel in the LMS365 Admin Center. Here, it counts courses that are set as required for training plan completion. In the image below, the calculation would be: (0 + 100 + 0) / 3 = 33.3%.

 

 

When learners complete all of the courses required for the training plan completion, the Completed status is displayed in the Learning Progress section of the training plan home page, as well as the enrollment and completion dates.
