What is New Analytics?

New Analytics is an LTI tool installed at the account level and can be made visible in all courses.

Data is refreshed for published courses in the New Analytics dashboard every 24 hours. Report data may be delayed by 24 hours; however, Course Activity Report data may be delayed by 40 hours. Only active and completed student enrollments are included in data for New Analytics. Deleted or inactive user enrollments do not generate data.

Users participating in New Analytics can provide feedback in the New Analytics User Group about future analytics feature development. This tool will replace the current analytics feature at the course and user levels in a future release.


  • In order for New Analytics to display in Canvas, third-party cookies may need to be enabled in your browser settings.
  • New Analytics data does not display for unpublished courses.
  • Because mobile page view data is based on device settings and network connection, it may vary from the time the page views actually occurred. Page view data should not be used to assess academic integrity.
  • Unposted assignments are not included in New Analytics course grade tab.

New Analytics Access

New Analytics can be accessed from Course Navigation [1]. By default, this link is hidden in Course Navigation in each course and must be enabled.

To enable New Analytics, open Course Settings and view the Navigation tab. Move the New Analytics link to the enabled section and save the page.

You can also access New Analytics from the New Analytics button in the Course Home Page [2].

Note: Admins can remove the New Analytics LTI from Account Settings. If the New Analytics link is not available in the Navigation tab for a course, New Analytics is not available for the entire institution.

When Would I Use New Analytics?

Currently, New Analytics allows instructors to track average course grades for student submissions using an interactive chart graph or table. Data is for viewing only and cannot directly be changed.

Page views and participation metrics include an aggregate across all devices, including Canvas mobile apps.
