This guide offers information, advice and resources on how to create an effective online course.

Moodle Activity Reports

Why use Moodle reports?

  • see if and when a student has logged into your course
  • see an individual student's activity in your course
  • see when a student has accessed a particular resource or activity in your course
  • see which students have participated in a particular course activity
  • see a student's current grade

 

Generate a report at the course level (all course activity):

  • Administration block > Course administration > Reports

User reports link

  • Types of reports:

    • Logs - list of timestamped actions by a single student or all course participants
    • Live logs - log of activity over the past hour
    • Activity report - displays information about each activity's views and most recent access
    • Course participation - displays activity participation by each student and allows the instructor to send a reminder message to students
