Cohort Community - Learning - Progress Display

Cohort progress is displayed incrementally based on LO completion. That is, each time a required LO is completed, the section and overall cohort completion percentage is incrementally increased.

Completion percentages always round up for all numbers up to 99%. Once 99% completion is reached, the completion percentage remains at 99% until exactly 100% completion is reached. Then, the completion percentage is updated to 100%. 100% is the maximum completion percentage for a cohort.

If a cohort or a section do not have any required items (e.g., 0 of 3 items are required), then the progress for the corresponding cohort or section is automatically 100%.

  • The completion of a child section that has no required items does not contribute to the completion percentage of its parent section or cohort unless the parent section or cohort is 100% completed by the child section. For example, if Section 1.1 is a subsection of Section 1, and Section 1.1 has zero required items, then Section 1.1 is automatically 100%. If the completion of Section 1.1 results in Section 1 being completed (i.e., all other requirements for Section 1 have been completed), then Section 1 is 100% complete. However, if Section 1 has other requirements that have not yet been completed, then the progress for Section 1 does not include Section 1.1.

Note: LOs that are not within a section behave as sections when calculating progress.

Cohort Completion

Cohorts are time-bound collections of learning with a start and end date. Even if a user has reached 100% progress completion for the required training items within the cohort, the cohort remains in an In Progress status and transitions to a Completed status on the cohort end date. The cohort end date can be viewed on the Transcript Details page.

Cohort Progress Calculation Details

The examples in this section use the following cohort structure as an example:

Calculation Rules

When calculating the completion progress for a section that contains only LOs (e.g., section S1.1 in the image), then the section progress is dependent upon the number of LOs that are required to be completed within the section. For example, in section S1.1 in the image there are a total of five LOs in the section, and all five LOs must be completed to complete the section (i.e., 5 of 5, or X of Y).

  • Completion Progress = (Number of LOs completed in section / Number of items required for section)
  • For example, S1.1 requires 5 of 5 LOs. If 3 have been completed, then the section progress equals (3/5), or 60%.

When calculating the completion progress for a section that contains only subsections (e.g., section S1 in the image), then the section progress is dependent upon the number of subsections that are required to be completed within the section. For example, in section S1 in the image there are three subsections in the section, and one subsection must be completed to complete the section (i.e., 1 of 3 or A of B).

  • Completion Progress = Sum of highest progress percentages from required subsections / Number of required subsections
  • For example, S1 requires 1 of 3 subsections. If S1.1 is 40% complete, S1.2 is 20% complete, and S1.3 is 34% complete, then the progress for S1 is 40%/1, or 40%. If S1 required 2 of 3 subsections, then the progress for S1 would be (40%+34%)/2, or 37%.

If a cohort or a section does not have any required LOs, then the progress for the corresponding cohort or section is automatically 100%.

  • The completion of a child section that has no required items does not contribute to the completion percentage of its parent section or cohort unless the parent section or cohort is 100% completed by the child section.
