Enter a name and description (optional) for the category. To create another category, click “Save and New.” Otherwise, click “Save” to return to the checklist setup.


Click “New Item” to set up your first item.

Select a category for the item, or create a new category now. Enter a name and description (optional) for the item.

To create a new item, click “Save and New.” Otherwise, click “Save” to return to the checklist.


Student View

Here is an example of how a Checklist will appear for students. Checklists are intended for students to track their progress in a course or on an assignment. Instructors can see how many items on a Checklist have been completed for individual students with the Class Progress tool, but they cannot drill down to see the individual items completed.
