We know that teachers need to be able to quickly run reports to see their students' latest AR activity. Because of the volume of quizzes that students in a class may have (great problem to have), we will be limiting the amount of AR data accessible from reports to be the current year plus two years. This will make sure that we can ensure great performance and quick reporting.

The help files can be found by selecting the ? in the top right hand corner of each page. Here is a quick link to our summary about all the AR Reports that are available.
