This plugin provides five graphs that may facilitate the identification of student profiles. Those graphs allow the teacher to send messagens to users according to their behaviour inside a course. The graphs show:

  1. Grades Chart - The grades distribuition in a box graph to identifiy the differences among evaluations and students with problems.
  2. Content Accesses Chart - Which users accessed many different rsources.
  3. Number of Active Users Chart - How manu users are active in a certain time of day.
  4. Assignment Submissions Chart - Which users have submited assignments on time or late (tasks, quizzes and hotpotatoes).
  5. Hits distribution Chart - How each user is accessing the course and its resources in each cours week.

It is possible to click over graph elements in order to send email to a group of students (first two graphs) or to a particular student (last graph).

Thanks to Nadav Kavalerchik for the navigation code.

Thanks to Paul Nijbakker / Evgenii Pavliuk for so many things. Lots of new features. (

Thanks to Ben Chenoweth for H5P and Turnitin code.

    Hi Marcelo,
    Can we please fix the bullet points in the Analytics Graphs Block - They seem to be showing outside of the block (can't attach an image here to show you...)

    on "Hits distribution" -page I can see yellow triangle with exlamation mark on some students rows with a hover message "no module was access until now". What does this mean? What do you mean by "until now" ?

    Hi Urpo,

    "Until now" means "to date" or "hittills" or "tähän mennessä". The triangle refers to the fact that while the student may have visited the course page, he or she has not opened any course resources or activities (so if you click the student's name on the hits distribution page, the content access tab will only show a red pie chart).

    Hello Paul,

    I have students that have "resources with access" and "0" but content access-tab pie chart shows that they have access of 2,6% and also they have yellow triangles on the "Hits distribution" -page with message "no module was access until now"

    see here:

    Hi Urpo,

    Click on the blue slice of the pie chart and check what has been accessed.

    I can't create the graph.
    i added Analytics Graph on My dashboard.
    on Hits Distribution, Number of activities students : There are no students in the course
    on Grades Chart : there are no assessment list

    i'm a super admin.
    and on Teacher side, Analytics Graph Block doesn't appear.

    how i solve this?

    Hi Sharika,

    the Analytics Graphs block is meant for use in courses (with students in it), not on the Dashboard page. At site level (course 0) almost all users are in the Authenticated user role, not in the student role. That is why the block cannot find any students. Furthermore, normally you would not have contant or activities at site level for the block to display. Hence, why the block is meant for use inside courses.
