When you practice on our platform, your progress is saved for the next time you come back.
To help you see which subjects you have completed and how well you did, we have implemented three items that can give you this information:

  • the check mark

  • the colors of the labels

  • the progress bar

In this article, we are going to explain what these items mean and how you can read them.

NOTE: We measure progress based on completed exercises in subjects.

  • If you don't see any change to your progress after completing a subject, the subject may not contain exercises.

  • You can contact your lecturers or our Support team to check.

Below you see an example of a course page for which we will explain the different information shown to you.

The check mark

When you have practised and completed a set of exercises, the subject will be labelled with a little check mark. See the mark in front of the lesson "Variables".

This check mark means that you have completed the exercises at least once, and your progress is saved.

Note: this does not necessarily mean that you have answered all questions correctly. And you can always still practice more if you desire!

The colors of the labels

You can read the colors of the labels as estimations of your understanding on the subject. There are three colors: red, orange and green.

The colors are used in the following way to inform you about your mastery of the subject:

  • Red: you do not yet fully understand this subject. You got a score of <50% on this exercise set. We recommend that you practice this lesson again.

  • Yellow: you have a limited understanding of this subject. You have gotten a score between 50% and 80%. It might be a good idea to repeat these exercises again.

  • Green: you seem to understand this subject well, and you got a score of >80%.

The progress bar

At the top of the page, you can find a progress bar.

This bar tells you how many subjects and tests are available in your course and how many of those you have practiced or completed (for tests). It is a count of the amount of check marks you have collected. โ€‹

Remember: the progress bar does not depend on the colour of the labels, it does not tell you how well you have done on the subjects. It only tells you how many subjects you have completed out of the total number of subjects.

Accessibility mode

For the course page we have a dedicated accessibility mode to convey the same information using uniquely formed icons instead of only colors. Read more about how to enable this and how to interpret the icons here: Accessibility Mode for course progress in Grasple.
