The Equal opportunities dashboard provides visual metrics collated from learner responses to the equal opportunities monitoring form. The form is activated and deactivated for learners through System settings. The report is accessible to administrators who have been granted access by the master administrator.
When activated, learners will be asked to complete an equal opportunities monitoring form upon first logging into the system. It is not possible to access courses until the form has been completed.
The Equal opportunities dashboard is accessed through the Reports menu.
Information provided by the Equal opportunities dashboard is anonymous. The initial metrics offer a general overview of demographics within the system based upon: average age, most prevalent sub-ethnicity, most prevalent gender and percentage of learners who consider themselves to have a disability.
There are then a series of charts which give a breakdown of demographic information: age, ethnic origin, those with a disability and gender.
The final chart provides a breakdown of learners' sub-ethnicity. Sub-ethnicity can be added and removed as required through Manage sub-ethnicity.
