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