How do I track student activity in my course?

In Canvas you have options to track student activity via Course Analytics, Course Statistics, and Student Analytics.  You can view your own interactions with a student, and view a summary of all student interactions in your site. At this time Canvas analytics do not measure activity on mobile devices. For more information on the Grades area in Canvas, see our other resources.

  • Course Statistics give you basic information as to which specific course items are engaging students and which course items could be improved for future use to better encourage student engagement.
  • Course Analytics allow you to view analytics for the entire course as a whole in addition to viewing individual student information.  Course Analytics are divided into four sections: Activity, Submissions, Grades, and Student Analytics.  Canvas's Student Analytics combined with a Course Access Report.
  • Student Access Reports & User Page Views provide a condensed version of our Basic FSU Activity Report so that you can get specific information about how particular students are interacting with your course site.
