How do I download data from Canvas? To download data from Canvas, you need to download Tampermonkey(Chrome) or Greasemonkey (Mozilla). This will create a . CSV file of the Access Report data for all students enrolled in the course. It will then show some ways you can obtain useful information from that data using Microsoft Excel.
How do I know that my quiz questions are too difficult? Go to "Quizzes" on the Canvas page ->Click on the quiz -> Click on the "Quiz Statistics" on the top right hand corner of the page.
Is there a time factor to downloading quiz statistics? Quiz statistics are available only when a course is active. You can download and view statistics only prior to the course conclusion.
Why is there a " greyed " icon on the "Marks" graph on the analytics page? When I checked, some students have submitted the assignments and some have not. This will occur when Instructor made results invisible to students, pending finalisation of all submissions.
What will Analytics tell me about my course? Analytics include four main areas - student activity, submissions, grades and student analytics. It shows how students are interacting with your course.
Why can't I find 'View Course Analytics' on the course I have been operating? It might be due to the level of permissions that you have for the course, but it's hard to tell without having access to the actual course. Please contact your e-Learning Advisor.

Please email the Learning Project Team at for all queries or information.
