How to generate an activity report for a student

See also How to see tracking information for students

Logs and activity reports for students allow you to find out:

  • if and when a student has logged into your module
  • an particular student's activity in your module
  • the date and time that a student has accessed a particular resource or activity
  • which students have participated in a particular activity (and whether they have simply viewed it or taken action)
  • a student's current grade

To find out about an individual student:

  1. Open the Hamburger Menu and select Participants.

  2. Click on the user's name or profile picture to open their profile page.
  3. Report options for that user can be found in the Reports tab.

  4. Select a report option from the expanded list   

      • Today's logs - timestamped list and graph representing the student's actions for the current day
      • All Logs - timestamped list and graph representing the student's actions for a series of days
      • Outline report - a breakdown of a student's current participation per Moodle activity
      • Complete report - a detailed list of a student's up-to-date interaction with all Moodle activities
      • Statistics
