It can often be difficult to measure employee performance and determine if L&D programs are effectively working within an organization. When an LMS is deployed, it is crucial to develop analytics that parallels your programs in order to uncover valuable insights. An LMS provides many benefits to L&D programs, but arguably one of the most important features is the ability to fully leverage training data with custom reporting features. In a previous blog, we discussed the importance of identifying learning and development goals. By identifying and incorporating those goals, LMS admins can link back analytics data for valuable insights into the progression of reaching those benchmarks.
There are a handful of helpful metrics that can be utilized to review L&D framework, including:
• Course completion rates
• Pace of completion
• How learners consume different types of content
• Courses that have been taken more than once
• Participation rates
• Pass rates
• Devices used
• Retention rate
No matter the specifics of your learning programs, it is not likely that an out-of-the-box LMS report will provide all the data that you’d like to track. Out-of-the-box reports will provide some of the information you need, but how do you get the rest? Is there an intuitive process to modify what is already there? What can you create, and how difficult is that view to build? What are your options for sharing and automation? When evaluating LMS reporting tools, consider these ten essential features.
