Yes. Aplia records login and logout activity as well as answer submissions on a question-by-question basis for each time that students click the Submit button.
Aplia was developed this way so that students don't need to worry about losing their work on an entire problem set. If an error does occur when submitting an answer, students are automatically directed to an error page instead of the next question.
You can obtain an activity report for a student from the Course Home page by clicking the Manage Students button and then the Activity Report link next to the student's name. The report will show you the time at which answers were submitted for each question. Please note that if a particular question or problem set does not appear on an activity report, it means that Aplia has no record of the student attempting the question or problem set.
