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

You may want to check this plugin...
You can find detailed documentation and video tutorials on how to use it, in the page above.
Ps. If you would like, you can download the latest version from the attached file...
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.
Perhaps this is the thread that i should be posting in!
@Martin, Could you tell when is that new framework on reporting, analytics etc will be established? I sure would like to join it
@Mark, this sure is a very interesting topic and my research is based on the same, it will be great to discuss more on it
