The Student Engagement Dashboard has been developed to help the University recognise where students may require further support during their studies. It does this by bringing together into one place data already held on different university systems.

Before accessing the dashboard, we encourage you to read the FAQs below.

Student Engagement Dashboard

  • Why do I need to know about the dashboard?

    Your data

    Transparency of data usage is very important, so you will be able to to see the same information that your Personal Tutor and the University support staff are seeing.

    The appropriate use of this data is covered by the University's Privacy Notice for Students

    How the dashboard can help you

    A reduction in the frequency you interact with university and course systems is one way to identify key periods when you might require further support. We appreciate that university life can sometimes provide certain challenges and we hope to enable your success in a practical and proactive way through the use of the dashboard. 

    Accessibility

    We have made every effort to make the Student Engagement Dashboard accessible to all users. See our Accessibility Statement below:

  • How do I request access to the dashboard?

    If you are a current student, you will automatically have access to the dashboard. However, if you are a current student who is deemed as dormant, intercalating or part-time deferred from your course you will not be able to view any data within the system.

     

  • Why do I have to 'Allow' connections?

    When you first access the dashboard you may be asked to 'allow' connections (shown in the image below). This is so that the application can connect to the relevant data about you. If you do not confirm this, you will not be able to view any information about yourself within the system.

    The confirmation window will only appear at the start of your first visit to the dashboard.

  • How do I report an issue or give feedback?

    If you notice any inaccurate data about you when viewing your information on the dashboard it is very important that you let us know so we can correct this.

    We are also always eager to receive any feedback you might have and welcome suggestions for improvement as well as positive comments.

    If you would like to either report an issue or provide some valuable feedback, you can do this within the dashboard itself. Simply click on 'Report an issue' at the bottom of the screen.

  • What data does the dashboard use?

    The dashboard presents your Personal Tutor and the University support services with statistics relating to your last interaction with four of the University‚Äôs key systems:

    • University network
    • Student Hub
    • Blackboard
    • Library 

    The dashboard will also feature data relating to any absences that are recorded on university systems, as well as your module assessment data. 

    This all allows your Personal Tutor to monitor the way you engage with important aspects of your university study. Lower levels of engagement can then be used to identify periods where you might require further support. One way your Personal Tutor might facilitate this is by signposting you to university support services.  

  • How does the dashboard present data?

    In the dashboard, you will be able to view statistics relating to your engagement with the four systems (Library, Blackboard, University Network and Student Hub). It will also show your module assessment data (similar to what you see in ICON) and any records of absences we have for you in our student records system. The dashboard also:

    • Reflects the same data as the Personal Tutor and Support Services view
    • Presents only your information and data.

     

    Please note that the student information shown in the image below is entirely fabricated and does not reflect actual university student data.
