SOL tools



The 'Checklist' tool allows a tutor to create a checklist for students to work through.

The students can tick off each item on the list, as it is completed and the resulting progress of the class can be monitored by the tutor. The student is also rewarded with a progress bar that shows how far through the checklist they have managed to get.

Tutors can add as many checklists as desired in any section of a SOL module page. 

Under the Assessment tab on each module, you will find a pre-populated ' hvpAssessment Checklist', which contains a number of common requirements for assessments.  We recommend you review, edit, and add any additional requirements as per your assessment's requirements.  You can also duplicate this checklist if you have more than one assessment.  Please see our video guide on how to edit the Assessment Checklist.

To learn more about how assessment checklists can support student achievement, see our video here on 'Beating the attainment gap'.
