Scripted Reports - Overview

Overview

The Scripted Reports module allows you to design and schedule a range of reports to track learner progress and results. Quickly design reports tailored specifically for those involved in the learning journey - key stakeholders, line managers even learners themselves.

Reports can be saved in a variety of document formats accessed directly from within ScaffoldLMS or automatically emailed to recipients.

You might create a report for key stakeholders who wish to track attendance, completions and uptake of courses. Or you may be a trainer who wants a report about how learners performed in an online module or pre-requisite for a face to face training session.

Because Scripted Reports allow you to create and store a range of reports you are then able to review business goals, assess how training is going and to evaluate and modify your training program.

Take advantage of inbuilt scheduling tools that allow reports to be automatically run and sent to managers at regular predefined intervals.

Types of reports

Different reports can be used for different purposes.

The report types that can be created are:

  • Activity Reports - show progress and completion per learner for all 'activities' (an activity being a task, quiz, module or training session)
  • Course Reports - show data on course completion and on users and enrolements
  • Face to Face Report - shows data on all aspects of face-to-face training (who is enroled, location and venue information, trainer information about learners following the session)
  • SCORM Tracking Reports - report on completions for SCORM courses
  • SCORM Interaction Reports - report at the activity level including individual responses to questions

Scheduling reports

The tool allows you to reports on demand or you can take advantage of scheduling tools that allow reports to be run at regular predefined intervals.

Additionally, reports can be set up to automatically send designated recipients an email or an attachment that contains the full report each time the report is run.
