The Student Dashboard provides insights and context about the student. It displays a simplified overview of the student’s academic degree program and their progress as well as their specific campus and advisor. This can be accessed in your Canvas course from People or Grades (Gradebook) through the Student Context Card.

The Student Dashboard insight can be useful in the following ways:

  • Preterm:  learn more about the students in your classroom, to include background (i.e., Status, Degree Plan) and academic progress (i.e., GPA, Time in ERAU/Program, Take Rate)
  • Term Start:  engage your students in conversations about their academic progress, successes, and/or obstacles
  • Throughout the Term:  consult the Student Dashboard for students that are at-risk to assist and/or to identify additional academic resources (i.e., Campus, Advisor)

In summary, the tool can be useful to engage students in conversations about their progress, identify ways we can assist the student, and to build relationships with our students!
