New Analytics allows you to track weekly online activity in your course using an interactive chart graph. Data is for viewing only and cannot directly be changed. You can view analytics in both active and concluded courses.
Weekly online activity is comprised of page views and participations. Average page views is the average approximation of student activity across the course and can be used to identify trends in the course. Participation analytics are defined by specific actions a student takes in the course. Page views and participation metrics include an aggregate across all devices, including Canvas mobile apps.
Only active and completed student enrollments are included in data for New Analytics. Deleted or inactive user enrollments will not generate data.
By default, the analytics page displays an interactive chart graph of all data. However, you can switch and view data within a table at any time.
In Global Navigation, click the Courses link , then click the name of the course .
To open New Analytics, click the New Analytics link in Course Navigation  or click the New Analytics button in the Course Home Page .

Data for the week that is currently in progress is indicated by a dotted line .
Note: The definition of participation is based on federal guidelines related to student attendance as applicable to online courses. Please note that because communication between students and teachers often happens outside of the LMS, it is not included as a participation metric. However, as part of the Course Analytics offering, a history of inbox messages sent between students and instructors is included so that it can be viewed alongside participation metrics.
For analytical comparisons, you can compare graph data by filtering a section or student.
Below the chart, you can also view the specific students that are part of each filter.
