The Five Categories of Data
The Digital Activity tile shows student Teams activity over time:
- Posting and reaction to messages
- Viewing and editing files
- Turning in assignments
By default, the report shows data for Today. Select Specific day, 7 days, or 30 days for other time ranges.
The Average grade tile presents the calculated average grade from all graded assignments. On the graph, each dot on the line represents a specific assignment; hover over a dot to see the grade data for that assignment.
Only assignments that have been assigned a point value and returned back to a student with a grade will be shown in the Average grade graph.
The On-time assignments tile presents the percentage of assignments that were turned in on time. In the graph, you can also see the total percentage of assignments that were late and missing (not yet turned in), as well as submission status (on time, late, or missing) for each specific assignment.
Average time for feedback
Average time for feedback shows you the average length of time, in days, between a student submitting an assignment, and when it’s returned back to them.
The number on the tile is an average of the time for feedback across all students and assignments. On the line graph, each dot on the line represents an assignment; hover over the dot to see data for a specific assignment.
Communication activity presents data on posts, replies, and reactions in channel conversations.
Note: This data reflects only student activity, and will not include posts, replies, or reactions from teachers.
The number shown on the tile is the total number of all student posts, replies, and reactions. In the graph, you can use the dropdown menu and select options to see activity across all channels, multiple channels, or a single channel.
The graph reflects data from the students you’ve selected (all students or an individual student) in your filters. On the column list in this section, you can see student names and a Total number, which calculates all posts, replies, and likes the student has made. Select one of the bars on the graph that corresponds to a specific date, and the column will change to only show activity from that date.
