What statistics are available to students?

Jump to solution

I recently had an instructor ask how he could get students to see these two screens.  These screens are the flyout you get when clicking on a student name from Grades, and the other is the new analytics page.

Grades summary flyout     New Analytics view

I've had a few requests recently that suggest students really want to see more of their own analytics.  How has my grade changed over the semester?  When have I interacted with the course site during the semester.  When have I turned in assignments and which were late?  All of these are available to instructors, but is there a way for a student to see any of these?

Hi kbink@umn.edu - This is actually an account-level permission that may (or may not) be enabled for students.  In fact, if you check the screen capture on this page from the administrative manual, you will see it listed within the final screen capture as a permission.  For the record, we do NOT allow students to view analytics at my own institution, and while I cannot remember the reasons for that decision, I just want to state that I therefore cannot fully answer exactly what students see, other than to check the documentation linked below.

You can find out a bit more on what students might be able to see on these two pages in the online student guide:

While the latter mentions that this is an instructor-level permission, if the institution does not allow it, then that permission will not be available to the instructor, either.  So, if you're not the Canvas administrator, that may be your first person to chat with.

I hope this helps a bit, Kalli!

It does, thank you! I just want to be sure I understand, this setting

would allow students to see the course analytics, not analytics just about

their work, correct?

Hi kbink@umn.edu - My apologies; I didn't see that you replied to me until just now....a month later! Unfortunately, I do not know with 100% certainty other than being guided by the documentation referenced above.  What I might suggest is trying this first on your Test server, and then (with your administrative privileges or getting someone who does) "masquerade" as a student to see exactly what they are seeing with the permissions on.  Always better to be safe than sorry!
