This document outlines additional functionality added to Analytics Beta functionality noted in User Group: Analytics Beta.
Individual Student View is a feature in Analytics Beta that allows users to view analytics for individual students in a course. Individual student view includes course grade and weekly online activity information.
Individual Student View is the third feature available in Analytics Beta. Individual Student View allows instructors to view the average course grade, submission information, and participation metrics for a student using an interactive chart or table. Additionally, users can see an overview of the number of messages sent between the student and instructor(s) in the Canvas Inbox.
For reporting accuracy, the page displays the last time analytics data was last updated. The analytics tool is updated every 24 hours.
Note: If the course has been concluded, the analytics page includes a Concluded label above the Data Last Updated date.
The Student table displays below the Course Grade or Weekly Online Activity charts or data tables, which display all students within a specific filter.
For each student, the table displays the student's name, number of page views, and number of participations. Click any student’s name to view analytics for that student.
The Student table is ordered alphabetically by last name. Any column can be sorted by clicking the column header. An arrow next to the header names indicates which column is sorting the content.
By default, the table displays twenty students at a time. To view additional pages, click a page number below the table or the Next Page arrow, if available.
For each student, analytics can be viewed on separate tabs for Course Grade, Weekly Online Activity, and Communication.
The Course Grade tab shows the student’s average grade in the course, grade percentage on individual assignments, and submission status.
Weekly Online Activity is displayed as a chart with two rows: average page views and average participations. The student’s total number of page views and participations is also displayed.
The Communication tab displays an overview of the number of messages sent between the student and instructor(s) via the Canvas Inbox.
Data can also be viewed as a data table for each analytics tab by clicking the Data Table option in the Chart Options menu. Shapes can also be used to improve contrast within the Communication tab.
Detail can be viewed for any data graph point or data table percentage by clicking the data point or percentage. Detail metrics can be viewed for the date range in the data tray.
In the data tray, additional metrics are provided for the date range. Depending on the selected analytics tab, the data tray may include assignment name and due date, the student’s score, submission status, the student’s number of page views and participations with a resource, and the total number of messages sent per day by the student and instructor(s).
The student can be directly messaged at any time from the tab header.
Analytics Beta allows data to be exported as a CSV file. CSV data is exported according to the selected tab.
The export downloads as a ZIP file, which includes CSV files for course grade data, weekly online activity data, and communication data. CSV files may display the assignment name, due date, submission status, grade percentage, date range, number of page views and participations, and number of student and instructor messages.
This document outlines existing functionality included in the initial release of this feature: analytics for average student grade. Analytics Beta will continue to receive additional feature enhancements over future releases as indicated in Canvas Release Notes.
