Analytics in Progress: Technology Use, Student Characteristics, and Student Achievement (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
California State University, Chico (Chico State University) has been analyzing how students use its learning management system (LMS) since 2003 to demonstrate usage and growth in faculty adoption. Detailed LMS log files record every student interaction with the LMS and the time spent on each activity. Previously, these log files were aggregated at the college and institutional level in reports to campus administration. These reports answered questions about institution-wide usage, but didn't answer some major questions that we wanted to address, such as how to evaluate the effectiveness of professional development programs on student achievement and identify areas in courses for improvement.

How to Bridge the Latino Achievement Gap

How to Bridge the Latino Achievement Gap | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

New Mexico’s Latino Education Task Force wants to do something about the shocking disparity between Latino and white student achievement in the state. A new joint investigation initiated by the task force and Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund aims to produce evidence of significant barriers to student success due to unequal treatment of the Latino, black, and Native American students who comprise 70% of the state’s K-12 students. As reported by the task force, these students fall well behind their white counterparts:

“While just 49 percent of Hispanic eighth graders are proficient in reading, white students are at 72 percent, according to the New Mexico Public Education Department. Also, about 69 percent of white third-graders are proficient in reading, while just 48 percent of Hispanic students are.”
