Student data in LearnDash can help you broadly understand two things — Learner Performance and Course Impact.
Surely, it can give you an overview of the course and learner activity, too.
But is it enough to understand which parts of your course are running smoothly and which parts are failing?
To get these ‘insights’, you need to look into LearnDash analytics.
But not just any course analytics. Your LMS should provide instant access to the right metrics and an intuitive dashboard where you can study and manage all reports.
So that you can infer from the analytics without second-guessing and make decisions faster.
To get started, here are some ways you can get insights from your LearnDash analytics.

Monitor completion rates
Course and Quiz completion rates in LearnDash can help you understand the unclear issues about your courses. And when you know where the issue is, you can take the next steps to solve it.
The easiest way to check that is to monitor the ‘course and quiz completion rates’. The metrics can show you if learners tend to drop out at a specific course lesson or topic.
This will help you figure out if your course material needs improvement or if there’s some other issue that is resulting in low completion rates.
Low completion rates usually indicate distraction or lack of interest in the course.
Track the time spent on modules
Time spent on courses tells you a lot about learner behavior and patterns.
‘Course and quiz completion time’ give you the average time learners are taking to complete your courses. This helps you measure the difficulty level of your course modules.
If course modules are digestible, then learners will complete them in the designated time. If learners find your quizzes/ courses tough then they could spend more time than usual.
You can use this insightful information to optimize your course content. For example, you can break a tough and long course into shorter and more digestible modules.
A high completion time often reflects the difficulty level of your course offering.

Analyze the learner pass/fail rate
Just like traditional reports, pass/fail rates tell you the proportion of students who succeed in passing your quizzes.
They tell you whether your learners are able to grasp what you’re teaching through the courses. In LearnDash, the pass rate gives you the ‘pass percentage of quiz attempts’ in courses.
You can check the pass rates for each learner as well as the group of learners.
A low pass rate usually means that learners are not able to understand the course well enough. Additionally, the pass rates can be used to evaluate the quality of teaching.
Dig deep into quiz results
Exploring quiz results in LearnDash helps further gain valuable insights into the performance of learners.
What’s more, is that you can ‘narrow down quiz results with the help of advanced filters’.
These reports have in-depth information about the quiz outcomes including quiz title, quiz category, correct/incorrect answers, time spent, avg. pass percentage, and more about a learner.
Therefore, you can examine the performance of each learner and identify where they lack understanding.

Lastly, your LMS should also allow users to ‘download detailed course reports, quiz reports, learner-specific reports’, and other reports.
Admins can share these reports with stakeholders (like instructors and group leaders) and will help them take a stand on where learners are in their learning journey.
Additionally, sharing these reports will ensure that everyone is on the same page.
