This document will review and explain one of the pre-set Blackboard Analytic reports available to the instructor within each course. It contains a brief description of the report, an explanation of how to run the report, and an explanation of each area within the report.

Note: Instructor can reach out to the students who have a lot of accesses, but a lower grade and provide support either academically or with the technology to reduce any possible road blocks.
