  • Inactive students: Students who made no activity in Teams.

  • Missed assignments: Students who didn't turn in assignments due

  • Missed meetings: Students who didn't attend meetings


Active during quiet hours:

Tip: Hover over a percent to see more details about the data point's change from the last time period. For example, if you hover over a Missed meetings data point and see 17% next to +2%, that means that 17% of students missed meetings, and that's 2% more students compared to the previous time frame.
