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.

There is a hidden empty checklist embedded in every SOL unit page under the 'Assessment' tab so don't forget to 'unhide' it when planning to use it.

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

Further guidance on writing fit to submit checklists can be found on the beating the attainment gap project page.

Top tip: To use the same checklist across multiple units - create the checklist in a spreadsheet file and import it into the 'Checklist' tool. These are two example checklists to view, that can also be saved and imported in to the 'Checklist' tool. 
How to create a checklist in SOL

It's easy to create a checklist that students can use to assess progress towards learning outcomes etc. To create one:

1. In SOL, click Add an activity or resource and then in the 'Resources' section, select Checklist from the list.

2. Checklist items can be created by writing them in the box and then clicking Add as in the screenshot below (on the right-hand side, there are icons for editing, deleting or moving checklist items on the list):
