With Canvas Analytics, instructors can evaluate individual components of the course and students’ performance. The analytics can be viewed easily on the Canvas course website and is used to:
- view individual student progress in comparison to other students
- identify students who may need extra support for their course assessment(s)
- inform decisions to modify and strengthen the alignment of learning outcomes, activities, and assessments
In addition, instructors of funded Blended Learning courses can also review Video Analytics that tracks students’ learning behavior through lecture videos.
