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 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.

    i installed Analytics Graphs (block_analytics_graphs) v4.1.1 (2018072501) and with 433 users in my db it gives me 1 access from start date 01.01.2019 (moodle installed on november 2018)!

    I have latest stable moodle, php and mysql. Python is installed in its path ok and all other dependencies checks OK!

    Any function of Analytics Graphs:
    1. Grades chart - doesnt display anything at all;

    2. Content accesses - it can be selected ONLY the "Activity": "Forum" NOT COURSES, OR OTHERS;

    3. Number of active students - on a 365 days timeline, hourly, a report is build and is saying : "0.0" students at every hour for 24 hour timeline not 365 days;

    4. Hits distribution - by the way the date interval or start date can't be set

    I saved in my pc images and were the plugin generated 2 graps or 3 per page I saved entire webpage as .PDF. I put those files at your disposition if you request it.

    The intent is great but I'm desapointed... sincerelly.

    Dear Marcelo Schmitt,

    I love this plug in. Recently I am testing this with Moodle 3.8, looks like I am not able to send email / message. Is it working fine in 3.8?
