One of the uses of the checklist tool is to distribute the content in order to allow students to check their own progress of the material, or to unlock supplementary materials that not all of your students require. This can be especially useful if you are unsure of the knowledge of your students coming in to your class – you can share lessons or resources to help students become more proficient with content you expect them to know before starting your class. Please note that if you use the tool in this way, you will not be able to get statistics and usage report for the checklist that you provide using this tool in the same way that you can using the Content tool. If you are looking to track students’ completion of the content, please use the Content tool.
