What's in a Report?

Over the last few years, we have had many requests from many schools for assistance in crafting reports from their Ilios data. Along the way, we have collected a number of valuable patterns that seem to come up frequently for you; being able to trace and map vocabulary terms across multiple dimensions of the curriculum is one. Being able to collect and generate reporting on objectives is another. But while we have many examples, if there are reports you would like to see available to you natively in the platform, please let us know. As was noted in the past few weeks, we are working on expanding our reporting capacity in the platform. We are evaluating just what we can provide, and how far we can push the boundaries of the possible in delivering value data to you. So drop us a line at with your thoughts and desires. We appreciate it!

The latest code and the complete changelog for this release, as always, are available for download here:


LTI DEPLOYMENT: You can now plug the Ilios events & calendar dashboard, as well as the course manager, directly into your LTI-compatible LMS pages. It's as easy as clicking your mouse (two or three times). In order to deploy, you will need to be provided with a secure access key. Please email us for complete instructions at

TRAINING: Are you interested in getting a focused training for your power Ilios users and managers in your school or institution?
