This feature will allow tracking of the progress of each student, displaying what has been achieved and what is still to be achieved.
There are two ways to do this: by course and by competency:
1. Showing progress by course is pretty obvious and can work on any Moodle site: we just list the courses that have been completed and some courses that are still to be done. The completed courses can show the final grades and the date completed. Courses which are not yet completed can be shown with dates of when they start (if courses use a 'weekly' course format) or shown with the text "not yet completed". In Moodle 2.0, the course completion feature should also allow courses to be shown as either completed or not yet complete.
2. Showing progress using competencies requires the Outcomes features in Moodle 1.9 to be enabled and used across the whole site. When outcomes are enabled, we have a way of saying "these courses and these activities are intended to achieve these outcomes" and teachers can grade students against those outcomes. The progress report can then show a list of outcomes as past achievements and future goals for each user.
