Site Stats can give you valuable information about overall use of your course as well as data on specific user activity. This tool is not available to students. When you click Site Stats in the left menu bar, you are brought to the "Overview" screen where you see two types of information:


Reports allows you to obtain data about tool use and/or student activity during specific dates.

  1. Click Reports at the top of the Site Stats page.
  2. Click Add under the "My reports" heading.
  3. If you want to save this report, you need to give it a Title. Click Show beside "Report" and enter a Title and Description if desired.
  4. "What?" Select the activity you want in the report
    • Activity - There are two drop-down menus. The first one offers Events or Resources
      • Events - An action taken within a certain tool. For example, a Calendar posting, an Assignment submission, a Mail message.
        • When you choose "Events," you will be able to refine the report further by specifying actions within the tool. For example, if you want to know if a certain student had accessed the Mail tool, you would use "Select by tool" from the drop-down menu, and then "Mail" under the "Selection" box.
        • If you want to see if a certain student sent a Mail message, change "Select by tool" to "Select by event." In the "Selection" box, choose "New private message" under the "Mail" heading.
      • Resources - When you choose Resources, other options appear.
        • You can Limit the report to a specific action, such as posting a new resource, reading, deleting, revising a resource. When you check the "Limit to action:" box, a drop-down menu allows you to choose on a limiter.
        • You can Limit the report to a specific Resource, such as the Resources tool, the Assignment Drop-Box, and Attachments added, such as in Discussions or Assignments. When you check the "Limit to resources:" box, three options appear. Check the box beside the Resource(s) you want to include in the report.
  5. "When?" Select the time period that the report will encompass. There are several pre-set options in the "Period:" drop-down menu, or choose "Custom" to set a specific date range.
  6. "Who?" Determine which users you want to include in the report. The default is "All" but you can run reports on a specific role, such as Teaching Assistant, or Auditor. If you choose custom, you will be able to select a specific individual or individuals.
  7. "How?"
