Analytics for Learn
Blackboard Analytics for Learn provides Integrated Reports, real-time information about student engagement and performance. Integrated Reports are only available to the Instructor of Record (IOR) at the course level and are not provided for evaluation purposes. Four reports are available to the IOR and one report can be made available to students. The amount of information available within the reports will vary based on the design of the course.
Integrated Reports focus on real time learning statistics that will help faculty identify at-risk students. Reports are derived from student access to the course, number of interaction clicks, time spent in the course, and the number of submissions. These Integrated Reports are the ‘FITBIT for Learning’ because students can visually see how they compare to their peers on activity, average score, and other metrics. The Instructor of Record must make the Student Report available.
