How are you measuring 'success' of Canvas at your institution?

I was in a meeting last week demo-ing Canvas to some folks from SOCOM, and they asked a question I feel I should be able to answer, but was not. 


Is Canvas successful at my institution?   More to the point, by what metrics are we measuring Canvas?  


I could craft a few metrics to measure by:

- # active courses in Canvas

- tool usage per course

- average # student interactions / course

But I'm not sure those answer the question "Is it a success".   



Do other institutions have a similar metric?   What are you measuring that lets you go to your senior management and say "Canvas is a success" (or not, whatever the data shows)
