I am a community college professor from pasadena City College.
I am on a visiting accreditation team for another community college in California. My task is to evaluate a sampling of their previous semester's classes (in Canvas) and asses whether regular and effective communication has been going on.
On a previous accrediting team visit to another college a few years ago, I had a similar task. However, when I looked in Canvas at the sampling of their DE course, I could see a colored timeline (different colored flags maybe) when students emailed their professors and when the professors emailed back. I believe that this feature can only be found in the course analytics (I'm not sure where it was, but that's where I think this tool is located.
My Questions are:
1. Is the ANALYTICS tool that I need to see the student-teacher email communication timeline?
2. If this is the correct tool to see this, what level of access do I need to ask the college to grant me so that I can see the ANALYTICS tool?
