Chapter 5—Report progress

Tags: ACG

Now that you’ve invited your students, organized them, and started to guide their learning, it’s time to check in on their progress with reports.

ACG reports

The ACG platform provides several reports to measure and demonstrate your learners’ progress and learning outcomes. Instructions for generating and using reports can be found in the article Using Your Reporting Options article.

Reports provide information about how your learners are progressing in their studies. They also provide useful insights to help you make decisions on how to refine your learning programs as you continue to use A Cloud Guru.

You can generate and export reports on an organizational, team and individual level. You can also create specific cohorts using Reporting Groups.

Reporting groups

Reporting groups allow you to gain insightful, comparative data about groups within your organization. Unlike Teams, a student can belong to multiple reporting groups at the same time. This means you can look at the same student within multiple groups of people, including:

  • Role type or potential role type
  • Teams or departments
  • Experience levels
  • Geographic Regions or timezone

You’ll be able to track each Reporting group you create. Instructions for creating Reporting groups can be found in the How to Create a Reporting Group article.

Important: You can only filter by Reporting groups for Courses, Engagement and Certifications reports.
