Also, a report can be generated from the dropdown menu of the item by clicking View Statistics Report. Then next to Content Usage Statistics click the chevron and select Run. After a bit of a wait the Run Reports page opens. Here you can select the report format, date range (up to a maximum of 180 days) and what students to include in the report. The click Submit.

The report will open and you also get three options: Save to Content Collection, Download Report, Run a new Report. You can also save the report that was opened from within the report. The report can also be run again on the same item using different criteria.
