How can it be used?

The Detailed Course Report can be used to:

  • identify cohorts that may be at risk based on pass rates and grades in previous semesters
  • identify specific students that may be at risk based on number of previous attempts at course
  • identify cohorts that may be at risk based on current enrolment load
  • identify the top other courses students are currently enrolled in to avoid assessment clashes with those courses
  • identify any program cohorts that may be at risk based on previous performance
  • identify any trends in pass rates and grade/mark distribution of students over time
  • Observe any changes in enrolment numbers and demographic characteristics of the course. Increases or decreases in numbers may impact student experience or signal a change in value of the course offering.
  • Check completion of assumed knowledge and pre-requisite courses. This may inform adjustments in approaches to teaching or resources that are made available.
  • use as an resource to onboard new course coordinators
  • use as a resource during course reviews
