Reports & logs

Moodle provides many different types of reports that help you to monitor student engagement and performance. Users with editing access in a Moodle space can view and download this data via the Reports tab at the top of the Moodle space.

Watch the video below for a summary of the course reports available in Moodle:

Activity completion report

This report shows you which activities have been completed by which students. The table also indicates whether the activities have been marked complete automatically or manually. You can also override the completion status of an activity for a student.

Course completion report

Similar to the activity completion report, the course completion shows which students have completed a course and which required activities they have completed in order to do so.

Activity report

The course activity report provides a summary of engagement with a particular resource or activity. You can see how many views each one has attracted.

Course participation report

The course participation report generates a list of who has participated in an activity, and how many times. It can be filtered by role, group, or action (View or Post).

You can use the report to send users a message; for example, you might wish to send a reminder to users who have not interacted with an activity.


Moodle provides log data at the site and course level. This data can be accessed and downloaded as activity reports. You can see what pages the students accessed, the time and date they accessed it, the IP address they came from, and their actions (view, add, update, delete).

The information on this page relates to Moodle 4.1 and was last updated July 2023.
