What Data Does it Get (and Why)?

The utility creates two tabular (.csv) export files – pulled from the Google Classroom API – of these formats:

These files show – on a per-student, per-day basis – key information about the activity of students in the domain in Google Classroom, including details such as:

  • the status of all student-assigned assignments
,
  • the last interaction time for that day in Classroom
,
  • student Google logins
, and
  • posts by the student to the Classroom Activity Stream.

Note that the precise file formats above and/or information included may change over time. For current documentation, please consult the README file in the GitHub repo.
