Monitor Student Activity in Blackboard


Within Blackboard Learn, you can use a collection of tools and reports to assess the overall student performance and retention metrics within your courses. You can monitor retention, student performance on goals, student access and activity, student participation, and access logs.


Student Retention Center provides an easy way for you to discover which students in your course are at risk.


Course Reports allow instructors to view information about course usage and activity. Instructors can view summaries of course usage including which course areas are used most frequently and course access patterns for specific students.


The Performance Dashboard provides you with a view into all types of user activity in your course or organization. All users enrolled in your course are listed, including instructors, students, teaching assistants, graders, observers, and guests, with pertinent information about each user’s progress and activity.


Goals allow Institutions to demonstrate that their programs and curriculum are effective by aligning course content and activities in Blackboard Learn. Buffalo State currently has the SUNY General Education Standards within Blackboard Learn. To incorporate your department or course goals into Blackboard Learn contact Meghan Pereira in Instructional Resources at 716-878-3877.


Achievements creates opportunities for students to earn recognition for their work. Instructors designate criteria for issuing achievements to students in the form of both badges and certificates.
