Viewing student profile information and reports in Open edX

If you need to find out information about students in your course, such as email addresses, simply follow these steps. Note that not all of these reports are available to all staff, and you may require course admin rights (or higher) to access all of this data, which should be protected once downloaded.

  1. In the LMS, go to the Instructor dashboard, and then select the Data Download tab.
  2. From this page, you can download a CSV containing student profile information, as well as other data. To access the most useful of these reports, scroll down to Reports.

  3. The reports on this page provide the following information in CSV format:
    Report Description Contents
