Progress

On the left sidebar of the Admin Dashboard, you’ll find the ability to track your students’ progress under the heading Progress.

In the Progress section in the left sidebar of the Admin Dashboard, you can see all of the courses on your site and it includes a variety of ways to export that data.




If you would like to export that data to use for your marketing or customer service, you can do so by clicking one of Cohort Report (HTML), Progress Report (HTML) and Progress Report (CSV).


The Cohort Report shows you a listing of all the students in your class, their percentage of completion and a time line. In case you don’t know what a cohort is, it’s a grouping of people or entities with a common element.  When looking at customers, the common element is usually the date they became customers.  For example, everyone who purchased your product in January would be part of the January cohort and so on.

Now that you know what a cohort report is, let’s see why they’re so valuable.  The first is that looking at cohorts is a clean way of looking at data.  The reason is that once a cohort is defined, it is static and wont change.  So, when looking at retention rates by cohorts, you can really understand how well you’re retaining customers.  If instead you looked at retention rates across your entire customer base, the data will be a little unclean as you’ll have a mix of older customers (who historically have high retention rates) and newer customers (who generally have lower retention rates).  So, as you try and understand why your retention rate may be to low or fluctuating a lot, you wont really know if it’s being impacted by newer, older, or some other segment of customers.

You can change the interval from weeks to months or years, select the period you want to look at and use the Apply button to activate those filters.




The Progress Report shows you a page where the progress that either all or a single user has made.  You can export that data as a CSV, or, just click the Progress Report (CSV) button for  the same effect.




CSV (comma separated values) is a universal file type that can be opened by any spread sheet program.
