As a student, you can view New Analytics in a course.

Available analytics include course grade, weekly online activity, and communication. By default, the analytics page displays an interactive chart graph of all data. However, you can view data within a table at any time.

Notes:

  • If you cannot view an option to access New Analytics, your instructor may not have enabled this feature.
  • Data is refreshed in New Analytics every 24 hours. Please confirm the time data was last updated in the course, as content may be outdated compared to recent  activity and submissions.
