    Hello and welcome to the forum.

    It's impossible to say without context. Please give us a complete sentence and a little background about the situation. There are situations where it would make sense and others where it would not.

    (track someone's performance) I mean, to follow someone's progress.
    eg. student, mentee, etc.

    thanks for ur help.

    Performance and progress are two different things. I like aes_uk's suggestion.

    To track someone's progress usually means to record it in some way, as in a chart or a gradebook. To monitor someone's progress is to keep an eye it, to observe it but not necessarily record it.

    [edit] Just to follow up on this, tracking performance doesn't imply an expectation of improvement; tracking progress does.

    Performance
    2 the action or process of performing a task or function.

    Progress
    2 development towards a better, more complete, or more modern condition.
