Notifications Overview for EdReady Administrators

This article contains the following information:


Notifications give you an opportunity to identify the student milestones and behaviors that you’re interested in tracking and alerting instructors to, in real-time when students demonstrate selected actions. While all of the student data underlying these actions and behaviors are already available in the reports, the Notifications functionality easily brings key actions to your attention without having to go looking for them. EdReady Notifications proactively inform you of key student behaviors. You can choose which types of student activities trigger a notification by subscribing.

Detailed instructions and details can be found below and we also have a Notifications "Quick Start" guide for EdReady Administrators, available here.

Available Notifications

Click on the Notification Name below to learn more about that notification and how to configure it

Notification Name Description
No Milestone Progress Allows users to be notified if a student has not achieved a milestone after a specified amount of time (from joining the goal).
Milestone Achieved Allows users to be notified when a student has achieved a milestone.
Learning and Testing Ratio Allows users to be alerted to unusual testing behavior, flagging students that are testing a specified amount of times for a topic, but not studying (using the Learn resources)
Test Attempt Message Allows users to be alerted to unusual testing behavior, flagging students that have tested a specified amount of times for a topic. The Learn time is not considered for this alert.
**This is the only alert that has a student-facing message
