Viewing and Interacting with the Learner Engagement Dashboard

This dashboard contains 3 main sections, similar to what appears on the Engagement Dashboard:

  • Filters for Org Unit and Semester. If you click on a data point in a chart in the Summary View to further filter report content, those filters are also listed in this area.
  • The Summary View section includes the Courses in View summary, Average Grade summary, Overdue Assignments summary, System Access summary, Grades Over Time trend chart, Content View Over Time trend chart, and Course Access Over Time trend chart.
  • The bottom area contains dynamic tables listing the Active Courses and Inactive Courses that meet the criteria specified by the filters.

As you add filters to the summary data, the visualizations in all the sections automatically change to reflect the updated Summary view.

Using the Summary View

The Courses in View card displays the number of courses (active and inactive) in the summary view based on the filters and permissions applied. If a user interacts with the metrics, this number updates to reflect the courses in the view.

Using the Active and Inactive Courses view

At the bottom of the page, courses are grouped by active and inactive in this view to make it easier to understand which courses are currently in session. When you return to the overall page, any filters you previously applied are maintained.

An active course is one where:

  • The course start date is less than or equal to the current date and the course end date is greater than or equal to the current date.
  • The course start date is less than or equal to the current date and the course end date is null.
  • The course start date and end dates are both null and the Active flag is selected.

For users of Student Success System, the predicted grade appears on this view for active courses with a model.

The Learner Engagement Dashboard shows the selected learner’s active and inactive courses.
