Batch Export of Completion Information

When a user completes a course ELIS Data Hub Export can export their completion information.

Below is an example of an export file viewed in OpenOffice:

ELIS IP export

The export file consists of Firstname, Lastname, Username, Idnumber, the Course Idnumber, the date the user started the course, the date the user finished the course, their status, and the grade they earned in the course. Data Hub versions 1.8.8+ allow custom profile fields to be added to the export report, see Export of Profile Fields and Grade Letters section below.

Completion Criteria


In order to be included in the export, a student must be in a Curriculum Management class tied to a Curriculum Management Course. They must have a completed status in the class.



Note: Make sure to set class completion as "locked" when editing manually, or the Curriculum Management cron will reset them


Export of Profile Fields and Grade Letters


In ELIS 1.8.8+, you can add custom profile fields to the Completion Export, these can be added via the Export tab:
