Monitor student activity in FLO

Monitoring student success should take place at several levels: throughout a course, across topics and within a topic. A range of reports in FLO can tell you how often students participate in or access an activity or resource, and more.

This tip sheet on using analytics to support student learning outlines how reports in FLO can be used to evaluate student engagement with your FLO topic.
