Canvas Tip of the Week (04 November 2019)

Canvas Analytics 

Did you know that Canvas offers a diverse set of course analytics?

You can quickly view activity, assignment submissions, and grades within a course, either specific to a student or your course overall.

Course analytics include for sections:

  • Activity by date allows the instructor to see when students view a page or participate in the course.
  • Submissions allow 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.

To review your course analytics:

  • Login to Canvas and select the name of the course.
  • Select “View Course Analytics” in the right sidebar menu.

Learn more about Canvas Analytics here and here.
