This is a document on Dropout Detective that I provide for my faculty. It covers the different features and some best practices.
Thank you Kona Jones - this is really useful! We hope to look at a demo, but out of interest can you view a risk profile for a student across all their courses, or is it just at individual course level?
Natalie, as an Admin I can see a risk profile for a student across all their courses. So the ranking I see is the ranking by student (but for all the courses the student is enrolled in). The individual course view is just for Instructors.
Thank you Kona Jones for providing this helpful information on Dropout Detective. I have a question about "Latest Submission." Does this detect only if a student submitted something to a Canvas "assignment" or does it also indicate if a student took a graded quiz or posted to a graded discussion? When we report LDA (Last Date of Attendance), we need to look at grade assignments, discussions, and quizzes. If the Dropout Detective tool took all these types of assignments into consideration, then this would indeed be a nifty tool for faculty to quickly and easily determine LDA.
It means any graded assignment - so discussion, quiz, or assignment. So yes, quite nifty. I will say however that we use something else for our financial aid so they can report last day of attendance - Assignment Submissions Report Programming
Ocean County College has been very successful with our integration of Dropout Detective in Canvas as well.
Thanks Kona Jones. We are currently looking at taking on Dropout Detective and this is really useful information.
Damian, I’m on my phone so I can’t double check, but there might be some updated features since I posted this. They are always working to make Dropout Detective even better!
Let me know if you have any specific questions!
Thanks Kona. No specific questions at this stage, but Chris and his team have been super helpful in enabling me to understand how Dropout Detective works.
Excellent! Glad to hear it!
