Running Reports

Article Last Updated April 2020

In any eClass course, instructors can run reports that provide a complete record of user activity within that course. These reports are often used for course evaluation purposes or to track participants' course activities and access. There are a number of different reports available on eClass:

Types of Reports

  • Analytics (Beta): A custom report type developed at the U of A that allows instructors to visually inspect and measure course and student activity.
  • Logs: Shows filtered details based on an activity, participant, date or action and are among the most used for basic checks on course activity.
  • Live logs: Shows pop-up window of all course activities within the past hour (automatically updated every minute).
  • Activity report: Shows the number of views and related blog entries for each activity or resource.
  • Activity completion: Shows detailed list of participants' completed and unfinished activities.
  • Course completion: Allows participants to self-report previously completed courses (e.g. prerequisites) AND can be used in conjunction with Activity completion so participants can view all completed activities based on self-reported checkmarks. Note that this report will only appear in the 'Reports' section if it has been enabled in the 'Course completion' section under the Course administration tab.
  • Statistics: Generates a graph and table of the course logs /user activity.
Running a basic Log Report
  1. Click on the gear icon near the top right of your course main page, then on More.

  2. Click on Logs.

  3. Click on the dropdown menus to add as many search filters as you'd like (ie. search for logs based on courses, groups, participants, date, activities, actions, sources, events, and types of logs [standard or legacy]). You may leave some filters blank if you do not want to limit your Report results.

  4. Note: if your course is older than Fall 2015 you must select 'Legacy' as the report type to see results. The eClass logging engine was overhauled at that time. 
  5. Click the Get these logs button to generate the report.

  6. Click on the event name to view the log. A new window will appear. The new window shows what page the student was on at that particular time.
