How do I view details of student activity within Moodle?

To view a student's activity within a course, start by opening the course.  Locate the Administration block by clicking of the edit cogwheel in the top, right corner of the course.  You will then scroll and select "More".

Edit and More

Then you will scroll to the "Reports" section and click "Logs":

Logs

Select "All participants" or use the drop-down menu to select individual students. You must select "All participants" or identify individual students. You cannot select two, three, etc. students at once.  You can also specify specific dates and assignments to target the logs you need. 

Log Report

After making your selections, click Get these logs. Be patient! This may take a few moments, especially if you execute this action towards the end of a course.

You will then see a detailed list of the student's activity. This information includes time, date, and the student's actions (viewed, attempted a quiz, submitted an assignment, etc.) The activity results are listed from latest to earliest.

There is a second way to access a student's activity. If you have the Participants (People) block activate in the course, you can directly select the student logs you wish to view.

Click on Participants in the course block in the left column of your course. 

Participants

Click on the individual's name.

Click on name

Locate the Reports block. Click on All logs. Be patient! This may take a few moments, especially if you execute this action towards the end of a course.

Student's Log

You will see the same detailed list as shown above.
