While the Block functionality cannot be used for the purposes of assessing your students, it can still provide useful functionality around assessment, or provide information to your students.
For example, the 'Activities' block functions as a shortcut list to all of the activities within your LEO unit. Every time you add an Assignment, Choice, Forum, Lesson, Quiz, or Resource, these will also be accessible via the links in the Activities block. Adding an Activities block is a way of providing additional points of entry to the activities and resources housed within your LEO unit.
The 'Unit completion' Block can also be a useful way of helping students track their progress through all of the activities housed in your unit. Both teaching staff and students can see this Block, although what it displays will vary according to the role you have within the LEO unit. Students are able to track their own progress through the Block, whereas teaching staff are able to see a list of all students within the unit, and their corresponding unit completion status. The 'Unit completion' Block will allow your students to see at a glance how they are tracking in your LEO unit.
NOTE: The unit completion block will only appear if you have enabled the completion tracking criteria. To turn completion tracking you need to:
- Navigate to the 'Administration' Block
- Under 'Unit administration' 'click on 'Edit settings'
- Scroll down to the section 'Completion tracking' and then click on the heading to expand the section
- Select 'Yes' from the dropdown next to 'Enable completion tracking'
- Click 'Save and display' when you are done.
Similarly, the 'HTML' Block can be used to display instructions to students around assessment tasks.
