Finding a student's browsing activity report
To locate student history reports, use the search bar at the top of the screen and enter a student's name or email address, then select the result once it appears.
Browsing activity reports contain information pertaining to the student, including:
- Their first and last name
- Their email address
- Their online status
- Which Organizational Unit they belong to
- Their last public IP address
- A Penalty Box status indicator appears when a student is in the Penalty Box (shown above)
Date Range Filter
By default, the student history reports will show data from the last 5 days. The date range can be extended using the date picker calendar menu. Data is available for up to 6 months. You may view up to 1 month at a time. Each activity card will adjust to show content from the selected date range.
A student's web history will appear in the Browsing Activity section. Browsing activity appears chronologically, starting with the most recent content. Any time that a student navigates to a new page or is blocked by a filtering policy, the event will be logged here.
Browsing events are grouped by date and each line contains the time the page was viewed or blocked. Click the launch icon (1) to view the site in a new window or the options icon (2) to view more information about the site or copy the page URL.
Web activity can be filtered by category by clicking the "X" on the category boxes that you do not wish to view, in the top right corner of the Browsing Activity section.
When reviewing a student's web activity, you may find records of content being blocked. GoGuardian filtering policies, Smart Alert triggers, and Teachers' Scenes can all block content. This section will help you troubleshoot the source of each block type.
Blocked By Admin Policies (specific block rule)
This indicates that the website was blocked by a specific filtering rule on the Website URLs section of a policy. In this case, *unblocked* is explicitly blocked on the policy labeled "New Policy." Click the link to edit the policy.
The above "Blocked" (without mentioning a policy) indicates that the page was blocked, but is no longer blocked due to a recent policy change.
Blocked By Admin Policies (category)
This indicates that the site was blocked by a selected Website Category. In the above example, reddit.com was blocked because the "Social Networking" category is blocked on the policy labeled "A Random Policy."
Blocked By Smart Alerts Trigger
This indicates that content was blocked by a custom Trigger by Smart Alerts. More information about the content can be found in the Smart Alerts timeline.
Blocked By a Teacher's "Scene"
Teachers have the ability to block content during classroom sessions using Scenes. Blocked pages will appear as "Blocked By Teacher Scene" and will display the classroom owner's name.
The top content card displays the top 5 visited websites, Youtube videos, Google Docs, searches, and apps & extensions for the selected date range.
