As part of viewing the average course grade in a data table, you can use filters to compare section, student, and assignment results with the course average.

Notes:

  • If you cannot view the Analytics Beta link in Course Navigation, you may have to make the link visible via the Navigation tab in Course Settings. If the Analytics Beta link is not available in the Navigation tab, your institution has disabled this feature.
  • Analytics Beta is not viewable to students.
