Analytical report generation is one of the most significant features of a learning management system. It is also the reason why educators and corporate trainers choose to work on a learning management system software. However, when it comes to reports, while every educational institution has a unique requirement, there’s a set of essential report formats that every LMS must offer. These formats relate to measuring various aspects of education and its usefulness to the learners. Let’s look at five essential formats every LMS must-have.
5 Significant Report Format in an LMS
- Educational Program Quality
Understanding what people think about your program is necessary to gauge its quality and effectiveness and make improvements, based on the learners’ feedback.
Accordingly, you can check out factors such as a list of the number of users as per every course, list of all learning courses, based on rare or exceptional completion outcome, whether the course is completed fully in one go or left midway to return to complete and user trends while accessing the course.
Based on the answers, you can compute the effectiveness of your course, make necessary revisions or changes and make it more suited to the learner.
2. Students/ Learners’ Engagement
Students’ engagement is a significant indication of the success or failure of a particular course. It could be determined by checking factors such as the time students spend every day in learning the course on the learning management system, checking whether they like the content and if they are engaging with it or not, and how many sessions does every user take to complete a particular single course.
Knowing the above can help you measure engagement, analyze individual competencies, identify individual learning gaps, and create an action plan to fill the gaps. It can help you make improvements to the course.
3. User Satisfaction
What students or learners think about a particular course is essential to decide whether to continue with it in the same format or make changes to it. Accordingly, you can conduct a survey by asking subjective questions to understand learners’ feedback about the course, its content, and delivery. You may want to create an individual online report by consolidating the survey outcome to determine user satisfaction levels.
4. Trainer Performance
This is similar to the survey conducted to understand course feedback. The trainer’s effectiveness must be surveyed and assessed across various parameters including the ease of learning, knowledge, pedagogy, learners’ comfort level, etc. Further, the survey result can be compiled into a single online report.
5. Tracking of Certification
This reporting format enables you to keep track of certificates at a single repository for all the training programs conducted for a particular learner. You may compare every learner based on the certification and send email alerts to people who have missed a particular certification or are lagging. Furthermore, you can set up certification parameters, based on an individual profile.
