Access Reports in SOL
Where to Find Reports
Various reports can be accessed in SOL by clicking on the More cog and then selecting the Reports tab.
There are lots of reports in the Report tab above that can be accessed but there are 3 in particular that can be used to check:
- an overview of the number of activities each individual student has completed ('Activity Completion')
- the number of times each resource/activity has been viewed by users ('Activity Report')
- whether students have completed an individual resource and if not, a message can be sent-either to individual students or in bulk ('Course Participation')
1 'Activity Completion' Report
If activity completion has been set up on resources and activities, it will be possible to see what individual students have done so far (N.B. The example below is taken from a Moodle help page-they are not real students).
Go to this page to learn more about setting up activity completion.
2 'Activity Report'
This report shows the number of times each resource/activity has been viewed (NB This report can take a while to generate on 'older' modules). Also note the date range when this report is created-the screenshot below has recorded total views since May 2018 which is why some resources may have a far higher view and user count than others):
3 'Course Participation' Report:
With this report, it is possible to see whether students have completed an individual resource and if not, a message can be sent-either to individual students or in bulk.
First, select the activity using 'Activity Module' (eg Assessment Brief) , then select Student and View. A list of all students enrolled on the module will appear and a 'Yes/No' option showing if a resource has been viewed or not:
The box of anyone with No by their name can be checked and they can be contacted (either individually or in bulk) by choosing Send a message from the drop-down box at the bottom in ‘With selected users’:
