Extracting student engagement data from Moodle
 


We are a university currently going through the upgrade process to Moodle 2. One of the challenges that I have been set is to get Moodle to generate a report on students engagement with their Moodle courses. The aim is to use this data to highlight, as early as possible, students that are "at risk" of dropping out or failing their course. I understand that some custom reports may have to be built but I would appreciate any advice from the Moodle Community on what sort of data should I collect and indeed any other advice that you deem relevant.

Thanks in advance

Mark

This is actually a major focus for core development in Moodle 2.5 and 2.6.  

We are going to be completely overhauling the logging system first, and then building new frameworks for reporting, analytics and competency tracking on top of that.   I'll be posting here soon with some draft specs for everyone to discuss.
