Using edX Insights


Audience: Researchers (course teams, data czars)

Owner: Analytics

Source files: edx-analytics-dashboard repo


EdX Insights makes information about courses available to course team members who have the Staff or Admin role. EdX Insights provides these course team members with data about student activity, background, and performance throughout the course. Using edX Insights can help you monitor how students are doing, and validate the choices you made in designing your course. It can also help you re-evaluate choices and inform efforts to improve your course and the experience of your learners. (from Overview)

More Information

The process for creating or updating documentation in this guide is the process outlined on the Creating and Updating Documentation - RTD page. Note, however, that the source files are in the edx-analytics-dashboard repo.

There is additional overhead relating to duplicating files to the edx-analytics-dashboard repo from the edx-documentation repo; however, this is outweighed by the ease it provides for delivering context-sensitive help with Insights.

All documentation efforts for Insights follow PID.

The Insights guide was written before the edX style guide, so it does not currently adhere to every standard outlined in the style guide.
