Engage offers insight into who's reading and interacting with content in your courses. Use the analytics tool to proactively monitor student activity to detect retention issues, measure content success, and guide lecture preparation.
You can export the analytics to a .CSV file to open in Microsoft Excel or another spreadsheet program.
Use the following steps to use the analytics tool:
4. (Optional) Click any student's name to open a Student view of the student's reading and engagement over time.
5. (Optional) Click the Highlights, notes, and questions view to see how your students are interacting with content to produce markup.
The Reading view provides a course-wide representation of which pages of a course material a student has read and how many times they have read it. At the bottom of the chart (x-axis) are the page numbers in the material, and along the left side (y-axis) is a row for each student in the class. Each student's row shows a blue bar that indicates which pages of the book a student has read. The more intense the blue, the more frequently the student has re-read that page. The student must spend at least 10 seconds on a page in order for Engage to count that page as read.
You can hover your mouse pointer over the chart to see exactly which page in the material the section applies to. You can click a student's row to see a time-based Student View of how a student has interacted with your content over the course of the class.
The Engagement view shows the quantity and type of markup that each student has made in the course material. Along the left side of the chart (y-axis) is a row for each student in the class. Each student's row contains a stacked bar chart to indicate how many questions, highlights, and notes the student has added to the course material
You can hover your mouse pointer over each stacked bar to see the number of the student's annotations represented by that point on the chart.
The Student View shows the number of page of a course material that a student has read over time. Access the Student view by clicking a student's name in the Reading view. This view is helpful to understand patterns of engagement with content and, more importantly, help you gain insight into student performance.
You can also export the stats as a .CSV file by clicking the Export button after you select the course and material. The Reading export file contains the following columns:

Within the Analytics section, the students are added once an initial “page read” of the textbook is created. A “page read” is tracked when a page is opened for at least 10 seconds. The student list is in descending (or reverse chronological) order. The student with the most recently created initial "page read” appears at the top of the list.
