The Discussion Boards section allows you to see how many times posts or threads are created or added in a certain time frame. You can view the usage by three categories: User, Class, and School. Under these pages, you have the option to see the Heatmap of the list of items or the Top user, class, or school.
Note: Discussion Boards requires ClassLink RosterServer. More information about Discussion Boards in Teacher Console and My Backpack can be found here.
For Usage by User, Usage by Class, and Usage by School, you have the option to Export the report. To see more information regarding how to export the report, click on the Analytics Export Settings page.
