Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 1.9. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Course completion.
Course completion is a new feature in Moodle 2.0 onwards that allows for a course to be officially marked as finished, either manually by the student or automatically according to specicfied criteria.
To enable course completion, first ensure that 1) in Site Administration> Advanced features, completion tracking is checked 2) in the settings of your course, ensure that completion tracking is enabled and that the box "completion tracking begins on enrolment" is checked.
This results in a completion tracking settings link in the course settings.
Manual Course Completion
To allow a student to decide for themselves when they have completed a course, there are two requirements:
- in the completion tracking settings link the setting Manual Self Completion must be enabled
- the Self Completion block must be added to the course.
The student may then click the "complete course link" in the block.
They are then asked to confirm they have completed the course and the course status will change to "complete" after the next cron job.
Course Completion based on specified criteria
Viewing Course Completion
To view course completion you must enable the Course completion status block.
In order for a course to be marked complete the conditions must be met. Once the cron.php script is run again any enrolled student who has completed the conditions for completion will be marked complete for the course.
