Tableau Reports for College and Department Administrators

FIU Online is happy to provide College and Department Administrators access to detailed reporting for their particular colleges and departments. Please click on each report to access the information.

Course Enrollments and Capacity

Whether you would like to understand and plan your enrollment numbers at a high level or need to know specific course details, this report will provide you with the data you seek. Understand your Trends: Use the “Course Enrollments and Capacities by Mode” tab to understand at a high level the student headcount served by your college/department, the enrollments generated broken down by 1.0 and 2.0 (available when looking at online courses) and SCHs generated. When reviewing more than one term, percent growth will be calculated for you. We provide you with the ability to drill up to the college level by hovering your mouse over the column names and clicking on the “-” sign or drilling down to the section level by clicking on the “+” sign. Review the “Course Details” tab to further drill into section level reporting and filter your list by course prefix, session, section, LMS and Instructional Designer (where applicable) as well as other filters. Plan for future growth of your Unit: Review the “Enrollment and Capacity Validator” tab to easily filter onto those courses that show a lower capacity that previous semesters or those courses that have had higher enrollments than the current capacity offered. This tool will allow you to better plan for enrollment growth and align your unit with FIU’s 2020 Goal.

Canvas Analytics

Instructors can see the analytics for a course to track and analyze what students, observers, and/or designers are doing within the course. Analytics work in conjunction with course statistics.


In course analytics, there are four main sections:

  • Activity allows the instructor to see when students view a page or participate in the course.
  • Submissions allows the instructor to view if students submit the assignment on-time, late, or not at all.
  • Grades use a box and whisker plot to show the distribution of grades in the course.
  • Student Analytics will show how well a student is doing in your course. You can view when an assignmnet was due, if and when they submitted to it, and the grade given. 

Use course analytics to:

  • Predict how students react to course activities.
  • See which students are at-risk and need help.
  • View how effective your teaching strategies are in allowing students to learn.
  • See a quick view of what your students are achieving in your course.

Review Canvas Analytics Doc for instructions on how to use Course Analytics in Canvas. You may also watch Course Analytics video which will go over how to find and view course and student statistics and analytics in Canvas. 

Canvas Logs and Reports

In addition to the Canvas Analytics mentioned above, below are some additional logs and reports provided by Canvas which may prove useful for reviewing student activity within your course.

  • Quiz Logs - The quiz logs can be used to view the status of your student quizzes. This feature is designed to help you investigate problems that a student may have in the quiz. Quiz logs are retained for six months.
  • Interaction Report - This report allows you to see and evaluate the interactions between you and those enrolled in your course. You can also see which items are still ungraded per user.
  • Access Report - You can see a summary of user participation in your course and see the total number of times a user accessed a page.
