Site Usage Summary Report

The Site Usage Summary report is a generalized summary report showing an administrator the status of all courses his/her role has access to. This report will give administrators an overall idea of how their system is being used.

Example use of this report:
A Program Administrator has overseen changes to content and/or the instructional design of the courses in a program, and now needs to see if these changes have lead to improvement in scores, engagement, time spent in courses, pre and post test scores, and overall scores.

The Program Administrator can run this report with the time frame before the changes were made, and then again covering the time frame of the changes, to see if the changes led to overall improvements.
