Do More With Minimum Efforts

We always strive to provide you with more and useful features to make your life easier. This report is another step towards it.

Let’s find out more..!

2. User Completions Report

Check a specific user report of a particular course to see how they did in that course content.

  2. All the attempts of a selected user.
  3. Rich Quiz Report [For GrassBlade Cloud LRS or GrassBlade LRS Premium Plan users]

3. Gradebook Report

As its name suggests, it shows the score of all users who attempted the added content in the selected course. With this report, you can determine which activities are not completed by a user.

You will be able to check:

  1. The score of the latest attempt
  2. Rich Quiz Report [For GrassBlade Cloud LRS or GrassBlade LRS Premium Plan users]

4. Progress Snapshot Report

  1. Learners completing a course.
  2. Lessons completed by a learner.
  3. Lesson steps completed by a learner.

5. User Report

This report was already available for the users, it shows all the GrassBlade activities available on your website. So, we added User Report to Admin Reports as well.

grassblade user report

The administrator can check which user attempted, completed, passed, or failed in an activity. Also, you can check all the attempts of a particular activity. 

You can find out quiz scores and answers submitted to quiz questions, by fetching rich quiz reports from the GrassBlade LRS.

Frontend access for Group Leaders

To match your requirements, we added a Gutenberg block and a shortcode, that you can use to add this report on any post or page.

This report is designed for the admin user role, but for flexibility, we added support for LearnDash’s Group Leader.

If you allow group leader’s permission in LearnDash, they can access this report as well but access is limited to their own group’s activity.

Other Changes in this Update

In these updates, we fixed some bugs and made some changes to enhance the performance of the plugin.

Extra Security Layer for Videos

To Improve security and flexibility, we added the video player inside the WordPress context. Also, removed all the parameters passed in the content launch URL.

Custom End Screen Message for Videos

To match the level of your content, we added an option to change the end screen message. This means now you can pass any message to your learners when they complete the video content.

Find this settings: WordPress Dashboard > GrassBlade > GrassBlade Settings > Custom Label Settings

Video Endscreen message

We hope you will find this update interesting and we are all ears to hear back from you. We will keep making necessary changes and adding features to your favorite plugin.

    Hi Saurabh!

    Looks fabulous!

    Just to clarify – Group Leaders will be able to view their users/students progress/grades from the front end? They won’t need to have access to the backend of the site, correct? And are the screenshots the same for group leaders as those you have posted?

    Thanks!

    • Pankaj Agrawal

      Hi Curtis,

      Yes, Group Leaders can view their students progress from the frontend, and yes screenshots are the same for the group leaders.

    Brilliant! Now our group leaders can better drill down analytical data to improve compliance reporting on our Employee training site at https://tandi.com.au/ . Well done.

      Hi Peter,

      It is a great pleasure to know that the reporting features are useful for you.

    Hi Pankaj
    Do we still need to have the LRS installed or is this an option to have completion reporting without the LRS? Thanks!

    • Pankaj Agrawal

      Hi Ivan,

      Yes, LRS is required for most of these reports.

    Is there any way to be automatically notified by email when a learner starts and finishes a course?

    • Pankaj Agrawal

      If you are using an LMS, the LMS might have a way to notify by email on completion.

      From the LRS, there might be few different ways:
      1. Zapier Integration
      2. Using the triggers to run a custom script that in turn send’s the email. Or, using actions in WordPress.
      3. Partially sponsor the development, and we can add the feature in the LRS, to send the email.

    Hi Pankaj,

    Can you pull quiz answers on a course basis or will you only be able to see the answers based on user reports? For instance, if I want to see how everyone answered a survey for a course, would I be able to pull that report or would I have to look up each user who completed the course to get their survey answers?

    • Pankaj Agrawal

      Hi Rebekah,

      Currently it is our Rich Quiz Report for a particular User’s attempt of a particular Quiz.

      However, we are considering adding more advanced reporting to show things like all answers on a question, and related aggregation information. Would love to get your suggestions on what would be most helpful. 

      Pankaj
      PS: Rich Quiz Report is available only on GrassBlade Cloud LRS and On-Premise GrassBlade LRS Premium or higher.
