This Student Activity Detail report provides webtext activity data at the book, chapter, and page level for each student in your course. Each report presents a snapshot of webtext activity for data points such as active time, question completion, MCQ attempts, and more.

Reading the report

The Student Activity Summary report lists each student in your course and their engagement data. For each student, the report includes data such as:

  • the last time the student was active in the webtext

  • the total minutes of active time in the webtext, in a chapter, and on a page

  • multiple-choice question completion for the webtext, each chapter, and each page

  • the percentage of multiple-choice questions answered correctly for the first and most recent attempts

Data is aggregated at the book, chapter, and page levels

Webtext activity data in the report is aggregated at the levels described in the table below.

Data level

Level description

Book

Aggregated data for the entire webtext. These fields begin with “Book.”

Chapter

Data for each chapter in the webtext. These columns begin with “Chapter: [Chapter number].”

Page

Data for each individual page in the webtext. These columns begin with “Page” followed by the page number and name.

Page Type

Fields that end with the Page Type in parentheses show aggregated data for each page type, such as “quiz” or “assignment,” within the book or a chapter.

Having data aggregated at these levels enables comparison of engagement across chapters in the webtext or across pages in a chapter.

Book-level data is presented first, followed by data for the first chapter in the webtext and then for each page within that chapter. The Chapter- and Page-level data then repeats in that pattern for the remainder of the report.
