At Cal State, we've had a lot of discussions around reporting and analytics. We've taken a first stab to delineate two general areas:
a) Moodle adoption / usage acoss the institution. We're starting with this, as it seems fundamental.
b) Moodle Analytics - e.g. course-based, assessing whether using Moodle makes a difference in student improvement.
We're working on coming up with common queries that we can use to determine usage at the a) course, b) faculty/instructor, and c) student level - e.g. "What percentage of course sections offer are using Moodle". Simple reporting - like # of course shells in the system, or # of course shells visible, aren't accurate - because we create a course shell for every section, and visible doesn't mean really used.
What queries and reports are other institutions using for core usage metrics? What do you consider and what thresholds do you set?
