In Brainshark, within both standalone courses and as part of the curriculum, the inclusion of checklists as valuable activities can greatly enhance the learning experience. These checklists provide students with a structured approach to focus on specific tasks and monitor their progress. Whether it's completing tasks by a specific due date or meeting overall course completion criteria, monitoring the progress of these checklist activities within Scorecards is crucial for managers. By visualizing the completion status of individual checklist items per user/ per course, managers gain valuable insights to support their team's progress and provide timely assistance. In the following sections, we will demonstrate how to seamlessly integrate checklist metrics within Scorecards, enabling managers to effectively track course completions and optimize student performance.
Currently, Scorecards provides three out-of-the-box metrics that assist in tracking checklist activities within a course:
- Total Number of Checklist Items: This metric offers a general overview of the count of checklist activities in a course. It is recommended to use this metric against a single user within the course details page. The count allows managers to drill down and view the titles of the actual checklist activities.
- Total Number of Completed Checklist Items: This metric showcases the count of completed checklist activities in a course. Similar to the previous metric, it is recommended to use this against a single user within the course details page. The count also enables managers to drill down and view the titles of the completed checklist activities.
- Checklist Items Remaining: This synthetic metric displays the count of non-completed checklist activities in a course. It is recommended to use this metric against a single user within the course details page. However, unlike the previous metrics, no drilldown is available, and managers cannot view the actual checklist activity titles directly. This metric is a calculated result achieved by subtracting the value of Total Number of Completed Checklist Items from Total Number of Checklist Items.
These three metrics collectively provide valuable insights into the progress and completion status of checklist activities within a course. By leveraging these metrics within Scorecards, managers can effectively monitor the checklist performance of individual users and identify areas where additional support or intervention might be needed.
How to Set up the Metrics in a Enrollments By Rep Panel
- Login in to Scorecards
- Navigate to Activities -> Courses and select a course.
- For the purpose of adding these metrics, any course can be chosen. However, to immediately verify the results, it is best to select a course that includes checklist items. As a recommended approach, include the word 'Checklist' in the course name when creating it.
- To search for courses with checklist activities, simply type 'Checklist' in the search box for course titles. Any user who has access to the course details page can add the three checklist activity metrics to the panel.
- Click on the link of any course that appears in the search results to open the course details page. Scroll down to locate the 'Enrollments By Rep' panel.

- To ensure the layout is saved, click on the three dots icon in the lower right corner and select 'Save Layout'.
In conclusion, these three metrics collectively offer invaluable insights into the progress and completion status of checklist activities within a course. By leveraging these metrics within Scorecards, managers can effectively monitor the checklist performance of individual users and identify areas where additional support or intervention may be needed. The ability to visually track these metrics empowers managers to make data-driven decisions and optimize student learning outcomes.
