Student Progress Reports


Student Progress Reports display individual student progress on completed activities within a specified date range. The Student Progress report includes—for each student—the activity name, learning activity code (if applicable), date and time the student completed the activity, and the activity score, status, and duration. These reports can be a valuable tool for evaluating the effectiveness of learning activities.

BEST PRACTICE: Review the relationship between a student's activity score and duration to evaluate the effectiveness of the time the student spent on each activity.


To configure this report, click Reports, then click Progress Reports under "Odyssey Reports." A list of progress reports appears in the center pane. Click the Settings link in the "Default Student Progress Report" row.
