Canvas Usage Data Sources

Canvas usage stats are derived from three different sources:

  • EEE+ CanvasCounts, a home-grown tool that pulls data from Canvas to calculate the number of unique teachers, students, and sections associated to course spaces in the given term.
    • After ~3rd week, this tool is updated to exclude both unused and unpublished course spaces via a report run within the Admin area in Canvas itself
  • EEE Legacy Stats, a home-grown legacy tool that pulls data from EEE Legacy (via our Registrar data feed) to calculate the number of Instructors of Record, students, and sections in the given term.
    • This data fluctuates throughout the term as TAs are added and removed from classes and other changes are made to student enrollment, instructor associations, and sections.
