Financial Aid Reports: Last Log in Date vs. Last Submit Date

leave a comment »

With the changing requirements of attendance by financial aid recipients, it is essential we properly track students in online classes.  Recently I was having a discussion with a faculty member who mentioned that she had one student who occasionally checks into her online course, but has failed to turn in any work. It is not satisfactory for students check in for roll call in a traditional classroom and leave; therefore it is not acceptable for a student to look in the window of an online class and not participated.

BB9 gives the last log in date of all students. Just because they have logged on does not mean they are participating. To check the last log in date go to the full grade center and check Last Access. You can do a quick scan of the columns to make sure students are turning in work. As an alternative you also check to Grading History page to get actual dates when assignments were turn in.

To find the Grading History enter the Blackboard Grade Center. (Instructions for BB9.1.6)

  1. Click on Reports > View Grade History
  2. On the right side of Grade History Page click the number of days you want to check and click Go.
  3. You can then see the students name
  4. Attempted Submitted Date
  5. If you can’t easily find the user, download the information to Excel using the Download button at the top of the page. You can then use the search function in Excel to find the student.
