SQL statement count logins by date

Hi, I am trying to run a SQL query to measure user performance. Each time a student logs into the intranet a new record with a date time stamp is created.

I want to run a query that will return the student ID their very first login date&time their latest login date&time and then a count of how many times they have logged in.

I have tried the below statement but it's just returning the dates incorrectly  and not the counts
SELECT *
FROM (SELECT Student_ID, Time_stamp,
      MAX(Time_stamp) OVER (PARTITION BY Student_ID) as MaxLoginDate
FROM Intranet_LogIn) x
WHERE Time_stamp = MaxLoginDate
 
 My results should look like this
Student_ID         FirstLogin                                             LatestLogin                                         LoginCounts
 
00223                    2013-12-24 17:05:35.000                                2014-01-08 13:12:12.000                10

99233                    2013-12-27 13:05:23.000                                2014-02-10 12:12:21.000                3
00323                    2013-12-28 12:06:34.000                                2014-01-11 17:22:33.000                3
00314                    2013-12-29 12:07:45.000                                2014-03-11 13:36:12.000                4

what about this:
SELECT Student_ID, Time_stamp Last_Login_Time, cnt number_of_logins  
FROM ( SELECT Student_ID, Time_stamp
     , ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY Student_ID ORDER BY  Time_stamp DESC) as RN
     , COUNT(*) OVER  (PARTITION BY Student_ID ) as CNT
FROM Intranet_LogIn
  ) sq
WHERE sq.rn = 1

Any reason not to use a standard group by?

select Student_ID, min(Time_stamp) as FirstLogin, max(Time_stamp) as LastLogin, count(1) as TotalLogins
from Intranet_LogIn
group by Student_ID

Thanks for the replies guys!

I did not know I could achieve the same result using group by.

Both solutions work!

OK to split the points?
