Here is a catalog of Tableau reports that I have been constantly working on adding to as I discuss analytical gaps on an institutional basis. This is a live document.    All pre-defined reports are attached to this post along with a document on how to connect the report logic to your own Canvas Database. Just a note that some of these reports… (Show more)

The past two mornings, a subset of files in the data export contain data from the wrong tables. Later in the day, we notice that the exports have been corrected. We use the CLI tool to download and unpack the data exports. Is this something others are seeing?   Examples Wednesday April 1 at 3 AM - the unpacked submission_dim.txt file was an… (Show more)

Good day,   I've been directed to this forum and i hope someone can assist me. I know that Multiple markers/assessors can mark an assignment and a moderator of sorts can chose the final mark. I've been told that the rubric reviews stay as part of the assessment by the other reviewers and it doesn't disappear. They basically become part of the… (Show more)

Is there a way in which I can get data regarding chat activity in courses?    I have been looking in the Canvas Data tables, but can't find anything particularly useful. Also, the API doesn't seem to have anything.    Does anyone have any suggestions, please?

I can't find anything in the documentation discussing encryption for Canvas Data. When the data is instantiated in Redshift, is encryption enabled to protect data at rest? Is there any encryption on the flat file repository?   Glenn Auerbach University of Michigan

What is the foreign key or cross table in the Canvas Data Schema to link an observer to their student?   I can't seem to find that anywhere in Canvas Data and I need to pull students and their observers to build an official transcript report

When I pull a canvas provisioning report I see a status column that lists courses as unpublished or published. Makes perfect sense.   At my school we use oracle and have a reporting dashboard provided by OIT. When I search for unpublished courses I have to look at Course Workflow State as completed, claimed, created, or deleted. OK, fine.… (Show more)

Hi. We've just started using Canvas Data. I have a question about the USER_DIM table.    When I create a test user via the Canvas web app, and then later delete that user via the Canvas web app, they seem to appear in the USER_DIM table with WORKFLOW_STATE=REGISTERED. Some appear as WORKFLOW_STATE=PRE_REGISTERED. This doesn't seem correct... The… (Show more)

Our institution is wanting to take a look at Canvas Data to see what kind of information we can pull out of it. I have looked around the Canvas community quite a bit to learn more about the data portal and what it offers. I have seen how to download and sync data with the Canvas CLI tool, and it seems straightforward. I do have a few questions… (Show more)
