Reports and Dashboards

Reports and Dashboards, a locally developed tool available in Canvas, allows instructors to view all reports available for their course in one place. Currently, this tool is only available to Teachers, TAs, Designers, and related roles. Each user's course role determines which reports are visible in Reports and Dashboards. Additionally, some reports are only visible in credit-bearing courses, and access may be further restricted to faculty of record.
