Last Activity for Removed Students

Blog Post created by Gregory Beyrer Champion on Apr 25, 2019

In my district our SIS enrollment processing for drops removes students' users from Canvas courses. I don't know the specific status that is applied, but I do know that dropped students do not appear on the Prior Users page. One of the challenges this presents is for documenting when students on financial aid have been removed from a class. Their aid can be prorated based on the last date they participated in an academically related activity, so it is necessary for a fully online class that their Last Activity be visible.


In the embedded video I show how an instructor can find this date to share with our Financial Aid office by using our .test Canvas instance. I suggest using .test because that way the student can be manually re-enrolled in the class without generating a notification.
