General Report Functions and Hints

The CASUS Learning System allows you to view your report on screen, filter the data for your report, display a graphical representation, and export the data.

Filters
The CASUS Learning Systems allows you to filter the student case use log data. The filtering options are:
•    a time range. By selecting a start date and end date you are able to view student case use log data for a specified period of time; such as a clerkship. A dynamic calendar makes date selection quick and easy. Once your time range is set, click on the “search” button to activate the filter.
•    user names. CASUS enables you to search for a specific student. This function will search on first name, last name, and email login.

Helpful hint: The system searches ALL students in your group by default. To limit your search select the “Only search in data range” option and the system will search for the name you entered in the free text “name” box within the date range you have selected.
NEW in 2011, is the ability for you to organize data in groups of students you select. Check the box labeled “Only display My users” and the students you have defined as “my students” will be the only students at your institution who will be included in your report. To define your students, check the box in the first column displayed labeled “My” in your table of students.


Helpful hint: You can define “my students” in the following reports: Students, Individual Logs, Case use Details, and Comment Student Answers.

Helpful hint: Once you have defined “my students” and checked the box “only display My users”, each time you retrieve a report, the report will display data for the defined group of students. If you need to change the student group, you can re-define the students by first unchecking the box “only display My users” and select “search”.

Exporting Reports

Reports may have additional export options like “tab delimited” file or Excel, this is shown in a separate “Export” section with Icons, to export to the format of your choice please just click the icon. The export is performed on the filter selections you activated before!

Special notes for course owners and administrators:
By default access to all information is empty the first time you open one of the following reports:
“Individual Logs”, “Case use Details”, “Comment Student Answers”!
You have to select an institution first, then click on “search” to get the first results, additionally the “My Students” filter default not not set on start.

Please note: Once you defined “My students” the checkbox “Only display ‘My’ users” is automatically activated the next time you get to the reports, so to define new students please uncheck the box and press “search” again! Exception is the “Student” Report which defaults to “my students” unchecked, which was intended to speed up definition of “my students”.
