Canvas – Analytics – About Analytics

Instructors: 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.

In Course Analytics, there are four main sections:

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

For more details about these components, learn how to view course analytics.

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.
