Progress monitoring in the context of online education is essential to persistence and success in an online course. The purpose of this research was to evaluate the efficacy of an online self-monitoring tool embedded in online courses at the undergraduate level. Data were gathered in a survey course specific to undergraduate students’ use of a virtual checklist feature. As students of all levels of preparation enroll in online university courses, academically underprepared students often underperform when compared to their academically prepared counterparts. The research questions looked at a possible correlation between the use of Completion Tracking and academic achievement, Completion Tracking and persistence, and the correlation between self-directed learning and student preparedness. A statistically significant correlation was found. This resource will present results, implications, and suggestions specific to UDL checkpoint 6.4.
