Under New Analytics, what does "Participation" measure?

What does "participation" actually measure under New Analytics?  It doesn't seem as though it's page views since that value can be vastly different than the participation number.  Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @SteveDwinnells,

I think the he  Analytics Page Views and Participations - Instructure Community  page has the info you're looking for.  In simplest terms, a participation is when a student actively creates something (a discussion post, submits an assignment/quiz, etc).  Passive things like a page view are not generally viewed as participation.

Hope this helps!
