Faculty - Blackboard Analytics: Access and Grade Scatter Plot
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.
Access and Grade Scatter Plot
This report provides a way to help instructors see student’s course accesses along with the student’s grade in the course. The report plots students enrolled in a course against two variables: the Grade Center’s External Grade and Student Course Access. This report can help instructors analyze:
- If the amount of student accesses does (or doesn’t) relate to the grade recorded in the Grade Center.
After the report has been run, each blue square represents a student within the course. The linear regression line included in the report helps the instructor determine if there is a positive or negative correlation between the Grade Center’s External Grade and student course accesses.
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.
How to Access Activity and Grade Scatter Plot
The Course Accesses tracks each discrete user log in to a course.
Each point on the resulting report is a student enrolled in the course. Moving the cursor over a square will reveal the respective student’s name and student ID. In addition, if you click on the students’ name, the following information will appear:
