What are the Course Activity Reports Tool Adoption filters?

The Course Activity Report compares the usage of specific tools for course based on your search criteria. The Tool Adoption filters  allows you to filter by Reporting Template, Role Category, Presentation, Graph Type, and Start/End Date.

Tool Adoption Filters

Tool Adoption Filters

The data presented in the Course Activity Report can be filtered using the global filter bar at the top of the page. In addition, the way in which the data is visualized can be controlled using the presentation options and the graph type options in the filter bar.

To determine the structure shown in the chart and monitor category breakdown, click the Reporting Template drop-down menu and select the template you want to use [1].

To limit the adoption data to users who belong to the certain role category, click the Role Category drop-down menu [2].

To determine how the chart data is scaled and whether the adoption level for each monitor category is expressed in percentages or actual numbers, click the Presentation drop-down menu [3].

To toggle between Trend Line and Cumulative chart presentation, click the Graph Type drop-down menu [4].

To modify the Start Date [5] or End Date [6], click the Calendar icon. By default, the date range is set to a Start Date of three months before the current date and an End Date of today.

Presentation Filter

There are three Presentation styles to define how the calculation result is presented:

Fixed %

Fixed %

Fixed % is the default presentation style which shows the calculation as a percentage of the total active users for the selected time period.

Scaled %

Scaled %

Scaled % is the presentation style only has an effect on the presentation of the graph. The data shown is the same as the Fixed % but the presentation will zoom into the graph taking usage peaks into consideration.

Actual Numbers

Actual Numbers

Actual Numbers is the presentation style that provides the data as the actual number of users to see a precise value for level of adoption in each Tool Group and Sub-Segment. In this graph, the y-axis will adjust to cover the maximum number of unique users active in a particular week (or x-axis segment).

In the tool adoption report, the denominator will be the total number of unique users who have logged into the LMS over the selected time period and the numerator will be the number of those unique users who used that tool.

Graph Type

There are two Graph Types to display:

Trend Line

Trend Line

When Trend Line is enabled, the chart shows the number of unique users who trigger the tool during each unit of time set.

Cumulative Graph

Cumulative Graph

The Cumulative Graph gives you an idea of how many users in total have used the tool over time. If a user who has already triggered the tool does so again, the line will not display a new trigger.
