View Reports

Track your progress with reports

Reports allow you to view and track activity or view grades for courses you are currently enrolled in. Use reports to track your grades, track assignment submissions, view your forum, glossary, and wiki post history, quiz submissions, outcomes and more.

  • Learner Reports: View data about your activity in courses.
  • Comparison Reports: Compare your engagement, grades, and completion of activities and courses.

The following filters are available for selection in most Learner reports:

  • Grade Category: Set this filter to narrow report results that show data for activities within a specific grade category in the grade book. The Course Category option in the drop-down menu refers to the overall grade category for the course.
  • Sections: Set this filter to narrow report results that show data for activities within a specific section of the course. A section refers to a topic, week or folder, depending on the course format.
