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 First, all Discussion participation persists after a student is withdrawn from a course; all posts and replies remain intact.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:

  • Within the course, select Communication from the navbar, then select Classlist.

  • On the Classlist, select the Enrollment Statistics button.

  • 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 This section shows the names, usernames, date of withdrawal, and last login date for each withdrawn student.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.
