The Forum Summary Report will show an overview of participation in the course forums, including number discussions posted, number of replies posted, number of attachments, number of views, word count, charachter count, earliest post date, and most recent post date. This can be useful to get another measure of student engagement. The report statistics can be shown for individual forums or aggregated for all forums in the course.
- Click on a any forum in your course.
- On the right side of the page, click on the gear icon and select Forum summary report from the drop-down menu.
3. The Forum Summary Report columns are self explanatory. Note there is a menu you can use to choose which forum to show statistics for (including the option of all forums). You can also filter the results by a date range. Finally, if you select a student(s) using the tick box in the far left column, you can then scroll to the bottom of the page and choose to message the selected student(s).
