About these reports

The on-screen Assessment Monitoring report lists aim statistics for the learner’s programme. We provide year-to-date figures for all learners. The figures under the Aim analysis heading show the total number of units within the programme, how many units the learner has started, finished, on target, ahead of target and behind target.
