What is New Analytics?
New Analytics is an LTI tool installed at the account level and can be made visible in all courses.
Data is refreshed in New Analytics every 24 hours. Only active student enrollments are included in data for New Analytics.
Users participating in New Analytics can provide feedback in the New Analytics User Group about future analytics feature development. This tool will replace the current analytics feature at the course and user levels on March 21, 2020.
New Analytics Performance
New Analytics performance is measured using a course weight, which is the number of students in a course multiplied by the number of assignments. The majority of Canvas courses carry a course weight of less than 50,000 (students x assignments). Any courses with a higher course weight are not currently supported.
New Analytics Access
New Analytics can be accessed from Course Navigation. By default, this link is hidden in Course Navigation in each course and must be enabled.
To enable New Analytics, open Course Settings and view the Navigation tab. Move the New Analytics link to the enabled section and save the page.
Note: Admins can remove the New Analytics LTI from Account Settings. If the New Analytics link is not available in the Navigation tab for a course, New Analytics is not available for the entire institution.
When Would I Use New Analytics?
Currently, New Analytics allows instructors to track average course grades for student submissions using an interactive chart graph or table. Data is for viewing only and cannot directly be changed.
Page views and participation metrics include an aggregate across all devices, including Canvas mobile apps.
Use New Analytics to:
- View average course grade analytics as an interactive chart graph or a data table
- Compare the course average with an individual assignment, course section, or student filter using the chart graph comparison or data table comparison
- View average weekly online participation analytics as an interactive chart graph or a data table
- Compare the course average weekly online participation analytics with an individual student or section using the chart graph comparison or data table comparison
- Send a message to all students based on specific course grade or participation criteria
- Send a message to an individual student based on specific course grade or participation criteria
- View course grade and participation analytics for an individual student
