Complete your understanding of digital engagement for all students, instructors, and staff within the school system. Analytics+ expands the usage analytics you see through ClassLink to include any digital resource, even those accessed outside of ClassLink. Analytics+ gathers, crunches, and presents this data from the district level, down to the individual student, to help leaders make informed purchasing decisions and better support learning.
Available for existing and new ClassLink customers, Analytics+ is for school-issued devices and works on Chrome and Edge browsers and iOS devices.
Access usage analytics for all the digital resources used on school-owned devices across your school system (even those accessed outside the ClassLink platform). Never wonder about the full picture of digital engagement again.
Expand your understanding of what digital engagement looks like for all students, instructors, and staff in your school system—whether learning happens at home or in school. See who needs help, which resources are underutilized, and where to make changes.
Use clear, actionable data to make sound decisions around instruction, support, professional learning, and budgeting. Then, watch digital engagement (and your ROI) grow and flourish.
We try to keep things short and simple and so you’ll see it as a “+” sign, (but it’s possible someone, somewhere will want to spell out the + sign, and that’s ok too).
Analytics+ gathers web usage information on school-owned devices whether the device is used at school or at home. The type of data being gathered:
Analytics+ gathers the following:
Analytics+ uses multiple ways to determine the user, including:
Where there is no information to determine the user, we identify the user as unknown.
The base ClassLink Analytics system captures only the web activity that is initiated from ClassLink LaunchPad, while Analytics+ gathers web activity regardless of where it is initiated, including iOS native app usage. School leaders and educators have asked for this additional information on school-owned devices.
Analytics+ gathers this data through two new technologies:
Yes, Analytics+ will be able to capture native app usage and websites visited on the native Safari browser on iOS devices. This is accomplished through a new ClassLink Analytics+ app that will be available on the iOS app store, which will need to be installed onto school-managed iOS devices. (This will be in addition to the existing ClassLink LaunchPad iOS app).
Analytics+ on Android devices is being considered.
Rather than raise the price of ClassLink for all customers, we chose to do a minimal charge to those that want this additional data.
No, other than the $0.20 per user annual license, there are no other costs.
No, Analytics+ requires several other ClassLink technologies to enjoy full functionality.
Yes, so long as the demographic information is in Roster Server. The Analytics+ reporting console can aggregate usage data into any cohorts that are in Roster Server.
Yes, so long as the grade level information is in Roster Server. The Analytics+ reporting console can aggregate usage data into any cohorts that are in Roster Server.
All reports can be filtered to any custom date range. The Analytics+ reporting console includes several default date ranges like today, yesterday, last week, last month, this year, etc.
Analytics+ data will be available via both a new independent reporting interface as well as available within the base ClassLink Analytics app. We are providing this dual access for clients who may want to provide access to the Analytics+ information to particular members of their team.
Yes it will, and we’re excited about this too. From within the base Analytics screen, you will see a single comprehensive view of all application use, whether the application was used through LaunchPad or not. You will also be able to see the breakdown too.
ClassLink very much cares about data interoperability and yes, all the data in Analytics+, as well as base Analytics, can be exported into other systems as follows:
Yes, there will be a few improvements, including
Analytics+ uses new software technologies to gather usage data:
Analytics+ also requires ClassLink Roster Server and ClassLink LaunchPad. Analytics+ communicates with these systems to present the usage data linked to apps from LaunchPad and linked to Roster Server user groupings like building, grade, etc.
Very little work is involved to activate Analytics+:
