Department Progress Report

Applies to: Starter, Pro, Plus, & Enterprise Plans

Absorb's Reports module provides Admins with a Department Progress Report. With it Admins can have access to an overview of all of their portal's Departments, the overall advancement of the Learners within a given Department (and also its Sub-Departments), as well as an option to carry out various administrative tasks.

Overview

How It Works

This Absorb Report is a Department focused Report, providing the Admin with overall progress statistics on the students in one or more Departments residing in their portal.

With this Report the Admin can keep apprised of the number of Users in any given Department (including any its Sub-Departments), along with the headway the Department's Learners are making and finally, the overall scoring of their efforts. Somewhat similar to the Learner Progress Report, this particular tool tracks departmental Learner measurements by summing all of the information of the Department, and then averaging it across all of its Users on a percentage basis.

Unique to this Report (and also the Learner Progress Report) is the ability to select multiple Courses in the same Report. (The default setting for this Report is to display information on all Courses contained in the Admin's portal.) In the case of the Department Activity Report, this allows the Admin to choose which specific Course(s) they want to obtain Departmental progress on.

Having this flexibility enables the Admin to create a custom progress Report which can be limited to just the individual Courses contained in one of the Admin’s Course Bundles or Curricula. With this the Admin will be able to construct a summarized Department Progress Report that shows the scores for each of the individual Courses that make up their Bundle or Curriculum - all on the same page.

Additionally, the Admin can also initiate several different tasks and workflows based on what they learn here.


Report

Absorb's Department Progress Report will launch using the standard Report layout as its starting point where an Admin can run a custom Report.

Department Progress Report

The basic Department Progress Report can be customized to provide data on any of the following parameters:

Element Description
Average Score*

This column displays the Department Learner's Course grade average, based on the number of Courses they have completed in the LMS.

By default, this percentage will always be calculated using all of the Learner's Enrolled Courses, unless the Admin elects to filter their Report using one or more of the Learner's individual Enrolled Courses instead.

Department* This is the classification unit used for constructing groups of Learners in the LMS that all possess a shared attribute (e.g. the same organizational trait, similar training requirements, etc.) as chosen by the Admin.
Department Date Added This column displays the date that the Department was first created and saved to the LMS.
Department Date Edited This column displays the date that the Department was last updated and re-saved to the LMS.
External ID This column displays the unique departmental identifier manually assigned by the Admin and can be used to coordinate the administration of the organization's Departments in line with their Absorb counterparts in the LMS.
ID This column displays the unique departmental identifier automatically assigned by the LMS and can be used in creating deep links in Absorb.
Progress(%)* §

This column displays the Department Learner's progress rate, based on the Courses they have completed in relation to the total number of Courses contained in the LMS.

By default, this percentage will always be calculated using all of the Learner's Enrolled Courses, unless the Admin elects to filter their Report using one or more of the Learner's individual Enrolled Courses instead.

Progress of Enrolled(%)* §

This column displays the Department Learner's progress rate, based on the Courses they have completed in relation to the total number of Courses that the Learner has been Enrolled in, in the LMS.

By default, this percentage will always be calculated using all of the Learner's Enrolled Courses, unless the Admin elects to filter their Report using one or more of the Learner's individual Enrolled Courses instead.

Users* This column displays the number of Absorb end users contained in the Parent Department.
Users (Including Sub-Departments)* This column displays the number of Absorb end user(s) contained in the Parent Department, as well as any and all end user(s) contained in any pre-existing subsidiary Department(s) that the Parent might have.
