Student Behaviour Report in School Manager

This article is for IT Support and Filtering Administrators.

School Manager’s Student Behaviour Report helps you to review student internet usage. You can explore important metrics like downloads, uploads, blocked connections, total connections, and unique users across different aspects like date, time (hourly), content categories, signatures, and domains.


Our Student Behaviour Report is an optional School Manager feature. Contact your Linewize Success or Account Manager if you want to access this feature.


Use Outside School Hours to exclude user activity that happens outside of school hours from the Student Behaviour Report.

Behaviour Identified using the Student Behaviour Report

The Student Behaviour Report can help identify various behaviours and patterns within your school network, providing valuable insights into student activities and broader trends at your school. You can use the Report to:

Identify Significant Network Anomalies: The report can detect significant changes in network usage or anomalies that affect multiple students, helping to identify potential issues and allowing for timely intervention.

Review an Individual’s Behaviour: The report helps wellbeing staff in providing targeted support to individual students by analyzing their behavior and identifying instances of high usage or unusual activity patterns. You can also adjust the reporting period to analyze long term trends, helping wellbeing staff understand students' evolving patterns of activity.

Conduct Root Cause Analysis: The report supports efforts to uncover the root causes behind specific behaviors or issues by enabling metric comparisons and trend analysis.

Conduct Product Evaluations: The Report tracks students’ use of key educational content over time, allowing your school to assess the value they are deriving from specific educational products. This can help your school to make informed decisions about the effectiveness of its educational resources.


Large uncompressed images or files on websites can vary from one webpage to another, potentially impacting data reporting. Hits across websites and categories also fluctuate. For example, within the same category, such as Email, different email providers may load a different number of files, introducing a potential source of variation.

Scheduling the Student Behaviour Report

You can send Student Behaviour Reports by email on a recurring schedule to other school or wellbeing staff.


If you are scheduling the Student Behaviour Report, use a Presets date range. Do not use a Custom date, because this will set your report to an exact date range and send the same report every time.


You can discuss the Student Behaviour Report with your school's Wellbeing Team and configure it so that they receive a weekly report at the beginning or end of the week. This gives them the week ahead to follow up with students or time to investigate any at-risk students.

  1. In School Manager, go to Reports > Student Behaviour.
  2. On the upper right select the Dashboard actions icon > Scheduled delivery.
    1. If there are existing scheduled reports in your Student Behaviour Report, select New.
    2. If this is the first time this report is being scheduled, the Schedule Settings dialog will open (see the next step).
  3. For Destination, select Email, then enter the recipient’s Email address and press the Enter key.


    You can add or remove email recipients:

    1. Enter another email address and press the Enter key to include other recipients.

    2. Select the X to remove an email address.

  4. Select PDF, CSV zip file or PNG visualization in Format.
