Analytics Graphs provides six graphs that help instructors assess student performance within the course. The graphs also allow instructors to send messages to students according to their performance. The graphs are:
- Grades Chart - A box plot for graded activities, showing median, range, and quartiles.
- Content Access - A bar graph that shows which students have accessed resources on the course page.
- Number of Active Users - A bar graph that shows the time of day students have accessed course resources.
- Assignment Submissions - A bar chart for each assignment activity that lists who submitted on time, late, or not at all.
- Quiz Submissions - The same as the assignment submissions chart but for Quizzes.
- Hits Distribution - A line graph for each student that displays how many times they have accessed the course and accessed resources.
Instructors can access the Analytics Graphs through the Administration block or by adding the Analytics Graphs block to their course page.
