It appears to me that the analytics in Canvas include assignments that
1) could be among those that are allowed to be dropped,
2) test student accounts that have no activity,
3) students who had an excused absence and are turning in an assignment late or doing an alternative assignment, and
4) data for students who have have been given an incomplete and are not currently participating.
Is that so?
Are there ways to drop entire assignments or students from these analytics?
How do others communicate with students & colleagues about the limited validity of these analytics so they can make informed decisions about how to use the data they see?
