WordPress Courseware Plugin has built-in support for Course Progress. Both students and instructors can view course progress.
Course Progress: Students
From Course Outlines
Students can view their Course Progress (Unit Completion) from the Course Outlines:
The outline for users with permissions displays the ‘progress’ next to the unit. That circle is gray if the student has not yet completed the unit. It is green with a check if they have.
From “My Courses” Page
Add the following shortcode to any Page (Pages > Add New) in order to display a course progress panel for any course a student is enrolled in:
Students click on Course ‘toggle’ to open the Unit Progress information.
Course Progress: Instructors
Instructors can view students’ progress for a given course by using the ‘Grade Book’ for that Course.
To see the Grade Book, go to…
Training Courses > “Access Grade Book” >
