Item statistics – how they are recorded

Please be aware that item statistics do not provide a reliable quantitative indication of how students have engaged with your module content.

This is because Blackboard is recording a combination of displays and clicks which cannot be differentiated.

For example, if you have 3 handouts in Learning Resources and all 3 handouts have item statistics on, each time Learning Resources is opened will count as a hit for all 3 items in that area, regardless of whether they are opened.

Unfortunately we are unable to change this functionality but have raised this with Blackboard.
