Student Activity Details

Get insight into your students' activity

As an instructor, you can see when your students opened, started, and submitted tests and assignments with the Student Activity report. In general, this feature looks and functions the same whether you're working in an Original or Ultra course. In an Original course, you can also view student activity for Kaltura multimedia content.


View student activity for an assessment

  1. Inside your Original course, select the Content tab.
  2. Navigate to a test or assignment and select the arrow to the right of its name.
  3. Choose Student Activity.
  4. The Student Activity Details panel appears.

You can view this data in two modes: grid view (by default) or chart view. The grid view displays an Activity Timeline in a visual, box-and-whisker plot graph. You can hover over the tick marks on the plot to see important markers of student activity, such as the date she opened the assignment.

If you wish, you can choose to download the data for all your students.


ULTRA: View student activity for an assessment

Access Student Activity data from the Course Content page.

  • Hover over a test or assignment and select the bar chart icon labeled Student Activity.
  • A panel with student activity information will open

The Student Activity Overview provides aggregate information about your students' performance on the assessment, such as the number who reviewed instructor feedback.

Below the overview information, details on individual students' engagement with the assessment is displayed. You can view this data in two modes: grid view (by default) or chart view. The grid view displays an Activity Timeline in a visual, box-and-whisker plot graph. You can hover over the tick marks on the plot to see important markers of student activity, such as the date she opened the assignment.

 


ULTRA: Contact a student to follow up

From the Student Activity Details section, you can easily send a message to a specific student from the default grid view. 

Navigate to the Message icon on the right and select it to send a message to one of your students. Invite him to meet with you one-on-one or during office hours to discuss his activity in the course. 

On a smaller mobile device, you may need to select the More Options icon first before the Message choice will appear.
