Where do I find the course access report for an individual student?

You can view the course access report for an individual student in the People section of your course.

Note: The access report is part of a course permission. If you cannot see some of these columns in the report, you do not have access to view them.

In Course Navigation, click the People link.

On the user page, locate and click the Access Report link.

Note: If your institution has enabled Profiles in your account, you will see a different view but the option is the same.

The access report will show you:

  1. The content the user has viewed
  2. The number of times the user viewed the content
  3. The number of times the user participated (if applicable, such as posting to a discussion or submitting an assignment)
  4. The last time the user viewed the content

The content items may also display icons [5] to represent the content such as an assignment, page, or discussion. Hover over the icon to view the details of the content.
