Completion Tracking and Access Restrictions

Bruin Learn - Requirements and Prerequisites

Requirements and Prerequisites are two different ways of keeping students on track in a course. Requirements are used to make parts or all of modules mandatory, and can be tracked. Prerequisites can be used to gatekeep certain modules conditional upon previous modules' completion.

Adding requirements for a module

  1. Navigate to the module you wish to add requirements to and click on the three dots on the right side of the module title. Choose “Edit” from the dropdown list.

2. Under “Edit Module Settings,” click on “Add requirement.”

3. Choose which of the activities in the module you want to make required for students. You can either choose to require all of the activities in a module, or pick and choose which of the activities are required.

4. Choose the parameter you wish to use for deciding whether a requirement has been completed. The choices are: view the item, mark as done, submit the assignment, and score at least a certain score. This gives you a finer degree of control over these requirements. Click “Add requirement” to add another assignment/activity that you would like to require. Click “Update Module” after you’re done.

Viewing activity completion for students

Once you have set up module requirements, you can track student progress through those requirements. To start, click on the “View Progress” button, directly to the left of the add module button.

There is a list of student name on the right that you can toggle between. Once you click on a name, you can see the list of modules and requirements and the level of completion for each module.

Adding prerequisites for a module

Unlike requirements, prerequisites can lock off a module from student access if they have not completed a previous module according to the requirements you have set for them. Please note: you can only set a module as a prerequisite if it precedes the current module in the list of modules.

  1. Navigate to the module you wish to add requirements to and click on the three dots on the right side of the module title. Choose “Edit” from the dropdown list.

2. Under “Edit Module Settings,” click on “Add prerequisite.”

3. Choose a module from the “Select Module” dropdown menu that you want to make a prerequisite and then click “Update Module” to save.
