How do I use the Teacher Dashboard?

The Teacher Dashboard aggregates and displays data about student performance, progress, and teacher responsiveness. The Teacher Dashboard is available on the Homepage by clicking on the Dashboard tab.

Performance summary

The performance summary card displays:

  1. Bar graphs comparing the number of activities that you have graded on each day against the number of activities that still need grading at the end of the day.
  2. Hover over a day in either graph to get the specific numbers.
  3. A summary of teacher responsiveness with regard to grading activities; click it to open the Needs Grading tool.
  4. A student performance summary; click it to open the People tool with the data filtered to show critical students (students at risk of failing).
  5. A student pace summary; click it to open the People tool with the data filtered to show students who are behind schedule.

    • Yellow means one or more submitted, gradable items have gone 3 or more days ungraded.

The status indicators appear in one of three colors:
    • Green means that, in aggregate, your students are performing above 10% of the minimum grade for the course.
    • Yellow means that, in aggregate, your students have failed in 1 of their last five submissions or they are within 10% of failing the course.
    • Red means that, in aggregate, your students have failed 2 of their last five submissions or they are failing the course.
  4. Shows the overall student pace for each course and allows you to sort the information according it. You can click the status indicators in this column to open the People tool with the data filtered to show students who are behind schedule. The status indicators appear in one of three colors:
    • Green means that, in aggregate, your students are submitting all gradable items on time or that less than 10% are past due.
    • Yellow means that, in aggregate, your students have 10% or more of gradable items past due.
    • Red means that, in aggregate, your students have 30% or more of gradable items past due.
