Washburn instructors are asked to provide participation information for some students who have withdrawn from courses. When a student is withdrawn from a course, they no longer appear as active in the Desire2Learn shell for that course.
Some student participation information persists in the Desire2Learn course shell, and can be used to report how much a student participated in the online component of a course. First, all Discussion participation persists after a student is withdrawn from a course; all posts and replies remain intact.
Additionally, instructors can view all the grades that a dropped student received up to the point where they withdrew. That information does not appear in the Grades area with the grades of currently enrolled students. To access that information:
- On Enrollment Statistics, scroll roughly halfway down to the Withdrawals section. This section shows the names, usernames, date of withdrawal, and last login date for each withdrawn student. From the drop-down menu to the right of the student’s name, select View grades.
- That selected student’s individual grades screen will appear.
As always, please contact Online Education Support with any questions regarding Desire2Learn records of student participation.
