Creating an Item Report

An item report aggregates information that is extracted directly from syllabus items. The information can be from any component of a syllabus, such as Outcomes, Books, or Schedule Entries, though only one item can be reported on at a time.

Further, item reports can be created by anyone who can view the selected item on the given syllabus. For example, if item permissions are set in such a way that every user can view course descriptions but course guests cannot see contact information, the user would be able to create a report containing descriptions for every course across the system but of only contact information for courses they are actually enrolled in.

In order to create an item report, go to Report from the dashboard, and click on Item Report. Select the radio button next to the item that you wish to view across syllabi and hit Next. A search page for courses will come up, and you can narrow down your search either by typing keywords or by entering specific criteria under Advanced Search. Once you have done this, click Search, and a list of courses will be displayed. You can sort the courses in a variety of ways, such as by title, subject code, session, and year.

After reviewing the results, you can generate the report by checking individual results and clicking Selected Results or simply pressing All Results to include them all. Your item report will then appear, showing a table of item content for each course. You can also download a CSV file to view an even more detailed report.
