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.
Analytics evaluate individual components of a course and evaluate student performance. Analytics takes a three-pronged approach to creating substantive data for Canvas users.
- Justification focuses on system reports and how the system is being used.
- Intervention looks to predict at-risk students and how to meet their needs.
- Learning focuses on learning outcomes, the effectiveness of the teaching style, and the division of time between students achieving competence and those falling behind.
