Tin Canny Reporting

Tin Canny Reporting for LearnDash is a premium plugin by Uncanny Owl. Uncanny Owl was one of the first companies to make third-party add-ons for LearnDash, and to this day, are one of the best. Their plugins are actively used on over 30,000 LearnDash sites. Many users say the Uncanny Toolkit for LearnDash is a necessity for any LearnDash site.

Tin Canny Reporting for LearnDash provides an easy, convenient way to upload, track, and report on all types of SCORM and xAPI/Tin Can data, as well as standard LearnDash records. While its initial purpose may have been to provide reporting on SCORM and xAPI data, it’s still a valuable LearnDash reporting tool for those who are not using SCORM or xAPI, and just rely on typical LearnDash reporting metrics for courses, lessons, topics, and quizzes.

Report Types

In general, Tin Canny Reporting provides 4 different types of reports:

  • Course Report
  • User Report
  • Tin Can Report
  • xAPI Quiz Report

The Tin Can & xAPI Quiz reports will only apply if you’re using Tin Can or xAPI data/authoring tools.

Course Reports

This report shows a general overview of all courses, as well as a drilldown of each individual course.

Notice the tabs on the left side of the report. For each user in each course, you can look at lessons, topics, quizzes, assignments, and Tin Can data. You’ll be able to see which lessons, topics, and quizzes a user has completed in that course, as well as additional quiz information. You can open a popup window that displays all questions of each quiz the user took in that course. If a user passed a quiz with a certificate attached to it, you can also view that certificate. Links to assignment files are also provided.
