A participation report provides any easy way to monitor students' participation. The participation report can be accessed from a link off the Reports page:
The following is a sample report:
The definition of View and Post for the selected Activity type will be given on screen. For example: Forum View: View Discussion, Search, Forum, Forums, Subscribers Forum Post: Add Discussion, Add Post, Delete Discussion, Delete Post, Move Discussion, Prune Post, Update Post
Users matching the Show (Student or Teacher) criteria will be listed in tabular format by Name/ID Number and whether (and how many times) they have completed the Action searched upon. e.g. (Yes (n) or No).
An extremely useful feature of the Participation Report is the ability to email students or teachers who have not completed a certain action in bulk.
