FrogLearn - Applications - Analytics
Posted by , Last modified by on 24 October 2017 12:24 PM
The Analytics App is a powerful tool you can use to have an overview of who is using what on your platform. You can check how many hits sites are getting, who has set assignments as well as who is logging in and how long they are spending logged in to the platform. You can search for Sites and Assignments by Tag or Author and can filter your results easily to drill down to the information you want to see. To give one example, this might be useful if you wanted to know how many Year 11's are logging in and visiting a new GCSE resources site or if you wanted to know how many GCSE test assignments had been set for Year 11's throughout the year and which teachers have set them. On each search, the results are displayed with an easy to read line graph as well as a pie chart but there is also the ability to export the results to a CSV file which you can then use to display the data in any format you would like. Please note that you can't export data from the dashboard. |
When you first open the Analytics App, the first page you see is the Analytics Dashboard. This page gives you a quick overview of User logins, the amount of Site visits and the Assignments summary. You can filter these results down to each profile and you have the option to view the results from the last 7 days or the last 30 days. The reason you can only search back 30 days on this page is because of the sheer amount of information displayed on here. Furthermore, you cannot export this information to CSV due to this large amount of information.
On the left hand side of the Analytics window you can see options; Sites, Assignments and Users. If you click on Sites, you are immediately shown the amount of sites created and how many times sites have been visited over the last 30 days by all users. This is a useful feature of analytics because if you need to give your Head of Year or Head Teacher a monthly overview of the usage of Frog, you can simply navigate to this page and a quick view of all the information you need is there. From here, you can quickly export all that information to a CSV if you would prefer to change how this information is displayed, depending on your audience. The site statistics at the bottom of the page shows you the title and tags of a site, the author, how many individual views a site as had as well as how many unique views it has had. This also displays whether it has been sent to the FrogStore or not.
You can get more specific information on Sites using the filters and search option from within this page. You can select which profiles you would like to search on and you can specify a start date and and end date to your search. You can start your search as far back as you would like although this may take longer for the information to be gathered if there is lots of data. In the example below, I have searched on all users from 01/01/2017 - 31/07/2017 and I have filtered the results to show me any sites with the author Frog. Please notice the ability to export all the information that has been filtered at the bottom or whether you would like to export ALL the results. Exporting the filtered results would only show you the sites with Frog as the author that has been visited by all users between 01/01/2017 - 31/07/2017 . Exporting all data would show all users and all sites with any author between 01/01/2017 - 31/07/2017.
On the left hand side of the Analytics window you can see the options: Sites, Assignments and Users. If you click on Assignments, you are immediately shown the amount of assignments created over the last 30 days by all users. The Overview shows you the assignments created during the time period specified via a line graph and a pie chart. If you look at the image below you can easily see the proportion of each subject in the pie chart. The 'All Assignments Statistics' at the bottom of the page allows you to filter the assignments by Titles, Authors and Tag. As with sites, you can select which profiles you would like to search on and you can specify a start date and and end date to your search. Furthermore, you can also export all this information to CSV.
If you click on the Users tab on the left hand side of the analytics window, you are immediately shown the amount of logins over the past 30 days by all users. Like the other tabs, this information is displayed in a line graph and pie chart format. This is quite a popular feature of the Frog platform as a lot of schools like to know exactly how many pupils are logging in and using Frog. You can get more specific information on logins using the filters and search option from within this page. You can select which profiles you would like to search on and you can specify a start date and and end date to your search. The 'All User Login' information at the bottom of the page allows you to filter using usernames. This area also shows you the profile of the users, their login count, the average session time, their total time and their last login. If you look at the image below, you can see that you also have the option to export the results in a similar way to Sites and Assignments but there is also an additional option to 'Export Users never logged in to CSV'. This allows you to quickly identify anyone who has not logged in to the platform.
