How are Analytics tracked in PowerSchool Learning?
How are Analytics tracked and measured in PowerSchool Learning? What is included in the Analytics area of my Class?
Analytics are tracked forWhat area or piece of content a user viewed,Who viewed the content, andWhen they looked at it. These views are recorded inHits,Visits, andUnique Visitors,calculated over Time. Analytics for weekly and monthly totals are updated nightly, so the data you see may not include hits that have occurred within the last 24 hours.
A Few Definitions:
Hit: a user action such as visiting a newPage, clicking on an image, opening a pop-up video window, or clicking on that same image again
Visit: an individual user visiting aClassor piece of content during one session
Session:the time between logging in and logging back out again
Unique Visitors: individuals visiting PowerSchool Learning, where each logged-in user or guest is only counted once during the given timeframe
Time:the elapsed period in seconds marked per-user visiting a particular Page, Class or piece of content.
Note: If a givenSessionlogs more than 10,000 hits for a particular visitor, Analytics for that user within thatVisit are not recorded. If an area of PowerSchool Learning is visited for an elapsed time longer than 30 minutes, the lastHit for thatVisitis not counted in the user's Analytics. (Items accessed for longer than 30 minutes may appear as Less than 5 secondsin your Analytics view.)
When a teacher looks at the Analytics in their class, the data being displayed donotinclude Analytics related to their own activity nor the activity of co-teachers in the class. When an administrator views Analytics (regardless of whether it's Analytics for an individual class or the whole domain), teacher & co-teacher activitywillbe included.
What is tracked, and what is not?
Many areas of PowerSchool Learning are tracked for Analytics, but there are few that are not.
Note:Our Analytics tool currently supports class activity Analytics tracking for administrators, teachers, parents and students. At this time, activity in the Domain Control is not tracked.
