Using Course Analytics
Analytics evaluate individual components of a course and evaluate student performance. Course Analytics takes a three-pronged approach to creating substantive data for Canvas users.
- Justification focuses on system reports and how the system is being used.
- Intervention looks to predict at-risk students and how to meet their needs.
- Learning focuses on learning outcomes, the effectiveness of the teaching style, and the division of time between students achieving competence and those falling behind.
When Would I Use Course Analytics?
In Course Analytics, there are four main sections:
- Activity allows the instructor to see when students view a page or participate in the course.
- Assignments allows the instructor to view if students submit the assignment on-time, late, or not at all.
- Grades use a box and whisker plot to show the distribution of grades in the course.
- Student Analytics shows page view, participations, assignments, and current score for every student in the course.
Use Course Analytics to:
- Predict how students react to course activities.
- See which students are at-risk and need help.
- View how effective your teaching strategies are in allowing students to learn.
- See a quick view of what your students are achieving in your course.
