Scenario:


I need to review the student grades for the most recent assignment and message all those students who received a score between 40 and 55% and also those students who scored between 20% and 40%.

Solution:


When viewing a data comparison card in New Analytics, you can send a message to:

  • Students who did or did not view a resource
  • Students who did or did not participate with a resource
  • Students with grades within a specific percentage range
  • Students with assignments missing
  • Students with late assignments
Message recipients are automatically populated based on selected criterion as well as any applied filters.

Based on participation criteria

4. The Message Students Who window:

  • Defaults to the Viewed criterion [1], which allows you to message students based on a specific resource they viewed.
  • The Resource field determines the specified resource [2]
  • The BCC field displays the number of students who fall within the specified range [3]. By default, the Resource field has All Resources selected. Additionally, any filters in the analytics page automatically display as an intended recipient for the message. If no filters have been applied, the message displays as being sent to all sections.
  • To select a new resource, choose a resource from the Resource drop-down menu [4].
  • The BCC field displays the updated number of students and/or sections who have viewed the specified resource [5].

5. The Didn't View, Participated, and Didn't Participate criteria options do not include any additional criterion. Selected students are based on participation status, and the number of affected students displays in the BCC field. Again, any filters included in the analytics page also display as intended recipients.

  • The BCC field displays the number of students who fall within the specified range [3]. By default, the Range field displays 0 to 100%, so the BCC field includes all students in the course.
