Viewing and exporting discussion statistics

Viewing discussion statistics

Statistics give you an overview of user activity in your discussion topics and forums. You can use this information to determine which topics stimulate conversation and which do not, or which students post frequently and which hang back. As the semester unfolds, you can use statistics to pinpoint topics in need of conversation-starters and to follow the participation levels of different users. You can send email reminders to users who have not been participating or ask overly vocal users to slow down and give others a chance to contribute. When the semester ends, statistics help you identify the topics that were most effective and the ones you might want to omit or modify for the next course.


  • Post counts do not include unapproved and deleted posts.
  • Only users who appear in the classlist appear when viewing statistics by user; however, totals include posts by all users, including instructors.
  • You can sort statistics by clicking on any column heading.
