Discussions: How do I gauge which students are participating up to expectations?
Tracking: Student Tracking Report
The Tracking tool keeps track of user activity throughout the course, including the Discussions tool. This information can help Instructors quickly identify Students that are outside the normal range of participation. Instructors can use this information to reward achievement and assist students that are struggling with the material.
Follow these steps to view Discussions statistics for a user:
Step 1: From the Teach tab, select the tool in the Instructor Tools area of the Course Menu.
Step 2: Select the Student Tracking report type.
The Student Tracking report provides an overview of Student activities in the course displaying both general session information and more detailed tool usage statistics for each Student.
Step 3: Select a Date Range.
Step 4: Click Run Report.
- Depending on administrator settings, the results displayed in this report may be anonymous with Student names replaced by numbers (for example, Student 1, Student 2).
- Depending on administrator settings, activity statistics may not appear in reports immediately; it may take from one hour to one day before statistics are available. If your administrator has made changes to a Student's first name, last name, or user name, these changes will not be reflected in the report until the following day.
Read Messages: the total number of messages the Student read in the Discussions tool. NOTE: If a Student reads the same message several times, each reading event is counted in this statistic.
Posted Messages: the total number of messages the Student posted in the Discussions tool.
