How do I modify preferences in the Statistics tool?

Go to Statistics.

Select the Statistics tool from the Tool Menu of your site.

Click Preferences.

Set your site preferences for reports.

Check the boxes next to the items you want to select.

  1. General options:
    • Only list tools available in site will automatically filter the list of tools presented on the Report editing page with the tools available in the site.
    • Show their statistics to students allows students to view their own page statistics.
  2. Chart presentation options:
    • Display item labels on bar charts: This option will display labels with total values on charts that don't require labels to be shown. (For example, pie charts always require values to be displayed.)
    • Charts alpha-transparency: This option allows you to specify a transparency level for rendered charts.
  3. Activity definition (Tools/events included as 'activity'): This option allows you to select the tool events that will count as activities on the tool Overview page.
    • Clicking on All tools will always use all existing tool events. Since tools can be added/removed from a site or made available/unavailable on current instance, this option ensures that all tools are always selected.
    • Clicking on a tool will select/unselect all related tool events.
    • Clicking on an event will select/unselect only that event.
  4. Click Update to save your settings.

Note: You also may click the + symbol next to individual tools to expand and show distinct events within a given tool, and the - symbol to close the tool section.
