Understanding Completion Status

For the various courses and content within the UCO Learning Center, the system indicates completion status as either not started, in progress, or complete.

  1. Not Started - Courses that have not been started and have zero progress, will show as an empty, white circle with a dotted outline. You can be enrolled in a course but not have begun any work and that course will still be listed as "not started". Instructor-Led Training (ILT) in which you have enrolled but the date of the enrolled session has not passed, will be listed as not started.
  2. In Progress - Courses in which you have begun work but have not yet completed all of the course requirements will be listed as "in progress". These courses will appear as a half-filled green/white circle next to the course title. Instructor-Led Training (ILT) courses in which you have enrolled AND the session date has passed but the instructor has not yet recorded your attendance, will be listed as "in progress". 
  3. Complete - Courses in which you have completed all requirements including the minimum score on any associated assessments will be listed as "complete". Completed courses will have a filled-in green circle associated with the course title. Instructor-Led Training (ILT) courses in which you have enrolled and the instructor has marked you as having attended will be listed as "complete".
