Getting Started with Canvas New Analytics
This blog post describes the Canvas New Analytics feature and provides links to additional support resources.
What is New Analytics?
Canvas New Analytics is a learning analytics tool that allows you to filter and compare student cohorts and individuals to class averages, for all grade-based Canvas activities such as Assignments, Quizzes, and Discussions. It also contains information about missing and late assignments as well as the ability to email all students within specific defined parameters such as missing an assignment. Data is refreshed in every 24 hours and only active student enrolments are included in data for New Analytics.
Canvas New Analytics will replace the current analytics in the coming weeks.
How should I use New Analytics?
- View course grade and participation analytics for an individual student
- View grade average information by course, section and student
- View Weekly Course Activity which shows level of activity and which items students on in a course.
- Send a message to students who did not submit or perform well on a given assignment.
