  • Course analytics 
  • Student analytics 
  • Engagement scores

  2. Click on the ANALYTICS tab.

Engagement scores 

The student engagement score scales student performance based on the weight you establish for each of the analytic metrics.

Note: Engagement scores must be set for each section. All metrics are evenly weighted by default. 

  1. Click on the Engagement link on the Analytics page.

  1. By default, all of the metrics are evenly weighted. You have the following customization options:  
    • Change the default settings by sliding the end of each metric's bar to the right or left to increase or decrease the importance of that metric.
    • Click one of the Presets provided. 
    • Do both by selecting a Preset, then customize it by moving the slider to the right or left as appropriate.

Note: All metrics add up to 100%: The "weight" of each metric is a portion of 100% - meaning if you increase one metric, the rest of the metrics must decrease by a corresponding amount. This is reflected in the percentages shown for each metric to the right of the slider.

  1. Click APPLY to apply these settings to this course. 
  2. Click RESET to return the metrics to their original (or last saved) settings.
