Hello Analytics Beta Community,

Thanks for the continued questions and feedback. The team has been heads down this winter working on the second of three views for the new Course Analytics, and we are just about ready for you to try it out and let us know what you think.

 

Next Monday afternoon (MDT) we'll be turning on the Weekly Online Activity view for teachers in all existing Analytics Beta LTI instances. This view will be accessible via a dropdown option from the Course Grades view, and will include weekly trend data on page views and participations, the ability to compare by section or student, and drill down to a specific week, and immediately outreach to students who may need a nudge.

 

Along  with the release we'll be adding user guides, FAQ details, and a list of known issues to the Analytics Beta Community home page. We'll also include some definitions to help answer a few common questions that we get around this data. 

 

In the meantime, thanks again for all your feedback and help in making sure we work out the kinks before going to GA.

 

Best,

Kevin 

Hello Analytics Beta Community,

Thank you for trying out Analytics Beta, joining the community, and providing feedback. Open Beta is the place where we can kick the tires of new features, and make adjustments before general availability. To that end, we'd love some help with with a specific issue we are currently seeing with Activity and Interaction data.

 

In some cases the data in the table of Course Grades doesn't match what we are seeing with the actual student page view or submissions data. We're having a hard time pinning down the root cause and we'd love to collect more examples of inconsistent data so that we can identify any patterns if they exist.

 

If you are up for it, and see an data inconsistencies or other issues with Activity and Interaction data, please log a ticket with support either by sending an email here: support@instructure.com or via the help icon in the global nav of your Canvas Instance.

 

Please include "Analytics Beta-Activity Data" in the subject, and include details of the specific example. The course URL, student name, and screenshots  would be excellent if you can provide them.

 

As soon as we get to the source of the issue I'll reach back out to this group and provide an update.

 

Thanks for the help!

Kevin

Canvas beta resets every Monday. Until we launch to production later this month our engineering team must re-enable Analytics Beta for all beta accounts. If you have already dragged Analytics Beta to be visible in Course Navigation, you won’t have to do it again. Thanks for your patience!

 

Best, KH
