Re-engagement DOE RSI

Jump to solution

Is there a way in canvas to pull the conversations and reminders that I have send students through Canvas?  Part of the new DOE requirements is tracking that I have re-engaged a student and this had to be documented.  Is there anyway to pull this data out of Canvas?  

For example, in the gradebook I have used the "Message all students who did not submit".  Can I track and pull that communication?

You can pull conversations data either via API - conversation endpoint (https://canvas.instructure.com/doc/api/conversations.html#method.conversations.index) or Canvas Data

You don't need to be an Admin to access API, anyone can use API (even students) providing that they have sufficient permissions to perform the request.

In theory, the conversation API endpoint can filter by course but it didn't work for me. 

Alternatively, if your school has access to Canvas Data, you can run a query to get and filter the data that you need.

Thanks.  Can this pull conversations at the class level for all students or just individual ones.  I am not a Canvas Administrator so I do not understand what an API can do.  Thanks.
