What are Course Analytics?

Analytics evaluate individual components of a course and evaluate student performance. Course 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.


  • Viewing Analytics is a course permission. If you cannot view Analytics, your institution has restricted this feature.
  • Currently, analytics does not measure activity on mobile devices.
