PLP: Check Course Completion Status


Once a learner has completed a course within the Professional Learning Portal the course may not immediately display in the Completed Courses module within the Dashboard. The list below describes why.

  • Blended and Online Facilitated course grades are released by the instructor who may choose to release grades only when all learners have finished the course.
  • PCG course grades are not released for a minimum of 24 hours after the course is complete.
  • Other self-paced courses may post grades immediately depending on how the course was designed.

If applicable to your course, State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECH) credits will be uploaded to the Michigan Online Educator Certification system (MOECS) within 10 business days from the completion date.

This process describes how learners can view the course completion status.
