Dedicated Dashboards for User Specific Reports

Reports for LearnDash makes data easy to view as it comes with a personalized dashboard for different user roles. For example, you get a personalized view if you login as an instructor, admin or a group leader. So reports are displayed as per the user who is viewing them.

It’s beneficial because user-wise filtering of reports allows instructors, admins, and group leaders to have their own dashboards with access to their particular courses, quizzes, and their insights so that they can quickly get the data that they require without having to hunt for it in different places. 

So, users get:

  • Personal dashboards to avoid the hassle.
  • All important reports in one view to save time.

Filters to Get Drilled Down Data

Basic reporting comes with basic filters but being able to generate reports for a specific course, quiz, and even question category can help you find out all the nitty gritty details. You can even select a specific date, topic, or course category and look for as many details as you like.

Using reports for LearnDash, Instructors can get data specific to their needs. Drilling down reports to get detailed information can help point out the knowledge gaps as well identify how the learners are performing, where they need help, and what they can do next to improve their performance.

 A reporting tool like this can assist you with:

  • Filtered reports: To check for completion rates by selecting a specific course, quiz, lesson or even learner.
  • Highly detailed information: To Look at how much time the learner is spending on a course, quiz, or topic along with the pass/fail rates.

Visually Appealing Reports to Retain Information

Did you know that if a scientific claim is presented in pure words or numbers, 68% of people will believe that the information is accurate and truthful. But if you put a simple graph with it, the number rises to 97%.

That’s why the plugin pays so much attention to the visual aspect of data. It presents data in a way that the brain can process quickly and also comes with an impressive user interface so that it’s easy to navigate through all the information.

Instructors can also customize the view and add reports for as many courses they like. Making it easy to not only gather the information but also to understand what it means. 

Additionally, graphical reports in LearnDash can offer all the information you need to infer draw conclusions that would otherwise take you some time to understand. 

For example, information presented in tabular format can take time to understand as you’ll have to look at each data cell but an easy-to-view style like pie charts or bar graphs, etc. can help your brain digest and retain the information as opposed to just numbers on a spreadsheet.

Reports with Insightful Trends to Monitor Activities

Generating reports that include all the information to draw out conclusions is paramount but following the learning trends to understand the engagement level is just as important.

Using LearnDash reports, you can get a better grasp of where your learners are in their journey. You can follow the progress of a particular group of learners with the help of a groupwise report for a certain course, topic or lesson.

What’s more is that insights can help you discover the trends quickly.
