Learning Analytics in Canvas

Just last week Canvas turned on their fantastic new Learning Analytics feature. Analytics are are visualizations (pictures) of data. Let me restate that: analytics are data visualization and NOT conclusions. Analytics are used for information and are not conclusive as to what the data means.

In Canvas, analytics are available at three levels: administration, course, and student.

When would you use analytics?

  • Make sure the students, teachers, observers, and/or designers are participating in the course.
  • See an overview of the term within the account.
  • View how the users are interacting with the courses in the term.
  • Watch how the grade distribution fluctuates or stays steady.
  • View the total number of courses, teachers, students, assignments, submissions, discussion topics and replies, files, and media recording in the term within the account.

What will analytics tell you about your course?

Activities, assignments and grades.  Please look at this page from Canvas for more descriptions and screenshots.

What will analytics tell you about your students?

Activities, assignments and grades. Here is Canvas documentation showing nice screenshots and descriptions.
