There a number of useful reports located under Reports in the Course Administration area. These reports can help you get an overview of the activity in your course.
To access, while on your course homepage click the gear icon in the upper right. Then click on Reports.
The Accessibility Report gives you an overview of the accessibility of the materials in your course as determined by Ally. For more information, please see our help pages on Ally.
Dates allows you to bulk edit just the dates to course activities. For more information, please see our help guide "Change Dates for Activities in One Location."
Groups allows you to bulk edit the Common Module Settings group settings for course activities. This can allow you to set multiple activities to group mode (and the correct grouping) in one place. While this can be useful for Forums, please keep in mind that for Assignments you do still need to go into the settings of each group Assignment and in the Group Submission Settings section set "Students submit in groups" to Yes.
Logs displays nearly all actions taken by users in a course. Actions include, but are not limited to, clicking on course materials, editing or submitting Assignments, taking and submitting Quizzes, posting in Forums, etc. Instructors can view the logs for the entire course, while students can only view their own logs. These logs can be filtered by specific user, date, and activity/resource. The logs can also be exported to CSV to open and manipulate in Excel.
Similar to Logs, Live Logs shows the most recently taken actions in the course.
Activity Report gives a high-level overview of users' engagement with the activities and resources in the course. Each activity and resource is listed (in order) with the number of times it has been viewed (clicked on), by how many users, and the date and time of the last view. The report can be filtered by dates.
Course Participation is similar to Activity Report, but more specific. Course Participation will show you how many times each user has viewed (clicked on) an activity and, for certain activity types, show how many times each user has posted/submitted. Course Participation can be filtered by time period, role, and action (view or post).
The Activity Completion Report allows the instructor to quickly see who has and has not completed tracked items, as set in the Activity Completion section of the settings of the items. The Activity Completion section is in the settings of every activity and resource and allows you to set how that activity or resource can be marked as complete. Complete can mean different things based on the item, from the student simply viewing, to submitting, to receiving a grade. By default, the completion tracking for every item is that users can manually mark items as complete. For more information, please see our help guide on Activity Completion.
Statistics takes the data from Course Participation and displays it in graph form. You can filter the data by user role and time period.
There are multiple reports contained within Analytics Graphs. These graphs can visualise what is going on in your course and may help you notice matters that otherwise might have been overlooked.
