Chalk - Course Tasks (Students)

This article explains how a student views a course task created by their instructor and indicates their progress on a class project.

Why View Tasks?

The Task tool helps students or groups to organize and manage course projects. Tasks are created by the Instructor as a list of activities (referred to as tasks), similar to milestones for completion on a project or assignment. The Instructor may assign priorities (high, normal, low) and track each student's progress on a task. Students will update the status of a Task from not started to (in progress or completed) so that instructors will be able to monitor progress on a project.
