As an instructor, the Engagement metrics for student interactions are useful for knowing how involved each student is. However, it may be more useful if you can compare those metrics to the grades actually being received by each student in your class. This comparison can help you determine exactly what types of interaction translate to student success.
Echo360 allows you to import grade figures into the Analytics page, then provides a scatterplot graph that shows the correlation (intersection) of a selected metric with the grade given for each student.
In the above figure, student grades have been uploaded, and the graph shows the correlation between the Engagement score and the course grade provided by the uploaded CSV file. Selecting a point on the graph shows the details for that student to the right of the graph, also shown in the above figure.
See What do the analytics mean? for a detailed description of each of the metrics and what it tracks. See also Defining Engagement Scores for more information on setting your engagement preferences, to more accurately track what kind of student interaction is important to you (as total defined engagement).
Does your button say Manage Grades instead of Upload Grades? If it does, your institution has enabled the use of the Canvas Data API to automatically import the total grade value from your Canvas Gradebook. See Comparing Imported Canvas Grades to Echo360 Analytics for information and instructions on using this feature. You can still upload grades using the below instructions, but you can also select to automatically import the total grade value from your Canvas gradebook.
To populate the correlation graph
Use percentage for grade values: The gradient of the "Course Grade" or Y axis of the correlation graph ranges from 0 to 100, with the assumption that the grade being provided is a percentage score.
Once the CSV file is processed, the plot points on the graph will change, to correlate with the grades provided for each student. You can upload and re-upload updated grades as often as you like, but the graph only shows the most recently uploaded data.
Once grades are uploaded, you can:
Use the X-axis drop-down list located below the graph to change which metric you want to compare against the grades for each student.
Hover over a graph point to see which student the point corresponds to - the information appears to the right of the graph while you are hovered over the point.
Click on a graph point to retain the student information on the right.
Use the Search box to search for students whose information you want to view.
You are also encouraged to read What do the analytics mean? to become comfortable with the details each metric tracks. That will help you use each more accurately for comparing against the overall course grade given to each student.
