Course Summary Report

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

Absorb's Reports module provides Admins with a Course Summary Report. With it Admins can have access to an overview of their portal's Courses, that outlines the item's overall activity / incurred costs / incurred time, as well as an option to carry out various administrative tasks.

Overview

How It Works

This Absorb Report is a Course focused Report, providing the Admin with overall activity statistics on all of the Courses contained in their portal.

With this Report the Admin has access to a single, collective overview on their training program, for the entire organization. The resulting Report data effectively lends itself to any internal reporting, that the Admin may have to deliver to management, on the overall health and success of the organization's training efforts.

Alongside the data on the overall Learner activity going on in each of the various Courses contained in the Admin's portal, the Report also offers a general representation of the 'costs' in terms of time and money that is being forgone / expended on each Course, so that the program's 'bottom line' can be tracked and optimized.

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


Report

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

Course Summary Report

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

Element Description
Average Time Spent*

This is calculated by taking the total time spent by all users, and dividing it by the number of users. Please note that if a learner has a time in a course, but isn't complete, this isn't calculated into the time. 

Category*

This column displays the optional identifier manually allocated by the Admin to the authored Course, that can be used to organize the portal's training inventory into whatever distinct programs, families of Courses, etc. the organization requires.

Company Cost

This column displays the optional number manually assigned by the Admin in the authored Course, that can be used to designate a calculated / estimated financial expense (i.e. real or arbitrary) that the organization directly incurs in delivering the Course to one Learner.

Company Time

This column displays the optional number manually assigned by the Admin in the authored Course, that can be used to designate a calculated / estimated duration of time (i.e. real or arbitrary) that the organization directly expends in delivering the Course to one Learner.

Completed*

This column displays the number of Enrolled Learners that have successfully finished their training and are designated as having Completed the Course.

Completed Company Cost

This column displays the total Company Cost, based on all the Enrolled Learners that are designated in the LMS as having Completed the Course (as per the Completed definition above).

This column displays the number of Enrolled Learners that have Started their training , but have not yet satisfied all of the requirements outlined in the Syllabus of the Course.

Learner Cost

This column displays the optional number manually assigned by the Admin in the authored Course, that can be used to designate a calculated / estimated financial expense (i.e. real or arbitrary) that the organization indirectly incurs in terms of foregone work / productivity, by having a Learner taking the Course.

Learner Time

This column displays the optional number manually assigned by the Admin in the authored Course, that can be used to designate a calculated / estimated duration of time (i.e. real or arbitrary) that the organization indirectly expends in terms of foregone work / productivity, by having a Learner taking the Course.

This column displays the total Company Cost incurred by the organization, based on all the Enrolled Learners that are designated in the LMS as having Started the Course (as per the Started definition directly above).

(Up until the point that a Learner launches their first Lesson, their Enrollment can still be canceled at essentially no expense to the organization. However, as soon as a student's training is underway, costs are technically being incurred by the organization in order to provide that Course to the Learner.)

This column displays the amount of time a user takes while the assessment is open.

Type

This column displays the training format of the LMS Course - Online Course, Instructor Led Course or Curriculum.
