ICON Data Reports 

What is ICON Data Reports?

ICON Data Reports is a tool developed by the University of Iowa that fills a gap in ICON’s grade reporting features. It currently provides two utilities: Discussion Reports and Grade Distributions. Discussion Reports shows instructors data on students replies/posts. Grade Distributions allows instructors to generate histograms for multiple assignments/exams at a time. It also provides instructors with a way of sharing this data with students through ICON.

Note: Data in these reports may be up to two days old.
