Key Takeaways

 

To take its existing data analysis efforts deeper, Chico State University is studying how student achievement is related to (LMS) use and student characteristics.

 

The project is also assessing whether student achievement in courses that have been redesigned to include technology correlates with LMS use.

 

Among the project's early findings are the importance of LMS data filtering, incongruences between LMS course hits and time spent on activities, and that students from low-income families use the LMS more frequently (and longer) than students from higher-income families.

 

If successful, this project will be scaled out across other courses at Chico State, University and it is designed for easy adoption by other California State University campuses by using common student data definitions and shared interests about student success.

This Chart Shows the Promise and Limits of ‘Learning Analytics’

This Chart Shows the Promise and Limits of ‘Learning Analytics’ | Learning Analytics in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Taking a college course is a journey, and each student ends up charting a unique path through the assigned materials — bits of lectures that resonate, chance conversations with classmates, the parts of a textbook actually consumed.


With more courses happening online, colleges now can track those individual journeys more precisely. Such tracking is known as "learning analytics," and it’s how administrators at Utah State University created a single graphic that depicts all the student activity from a recent online course. When I met one of the top officials from the university at the big ed-tech conference held by Educause, this image is what he was excited to show me, as if it held the solution to a longstanding riddle he was working to decode. He called it "the spider graphic."

Institutional readiness for learning analytics - a lot of piloting and consultations remains before we are ready - LACE - Learning Analytics Community Exchange

Institutional readiness for learning analytics - a lot of piloting and consultations remains before we are ready - LACE - Learning Analytics Community Exchange | Learning Analytics in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Institutional readiness for learning analytics. Is sounds like a dream. And it is a dream.  , it was the title for a conference LACE project organised in collaboration with University of Amsterdam middle of December. Through exploring  a number of pilots organised at UvA, a detour to the swamps of interoperability and standardisation, an introduction to the practice of institutional readiness consultations, the around 40 participants gathered in Allard Pierson Museum in Amsterdam were eventually invited to develop visions of the future. Judging from the evaluations sheets filled out in the end the experience had been ‘educational’ with enough slides, receiving more than ‘good’ marks, both in content and organisation.

Impact of Social Sciences – The ResearchGate Score: a good example of a bad metric

Impact of Social Sciences – The ResearchGate Score: a good example of a bad metric | Learning Analytics in Higher Education | Scoop.it

According to ResearchGate, the academic social networking site, their RG Score is “a new way to measure your scientific reputation”. With such high aims, Peter Kraker, Katy Jordan and Elisabeth Lex take a closer look at the opaque metric. By reverse engineering the score, they find that a significant weight is linked to ‘impact points’ – a similar metric to the widely discredited journal impact factor.Transparency in metrics is the only way scholarly measures can be put into context and the only way biases – which are inherent in all socially created metrics – can be uncovered.

How Data From Your LMS Can Impact Student Success -- Campus Technology

How Data From Your LMS Can Impact Student Success -- Campus Technology | Learning Analytics in Higher Education | Scoop.it
This fall, Oral Roberts University (OK) issued Fitbits to on-campus students and Garmin vivofits to online students — part of the "whole person" philosophy at the Tulsa-based institution that urges students to be "well prepared" physically. The data generated by those activity trackers on movement, heart rate and sleep patterns drizzles automatically into the university's D2L gradebook in time for settling up midterm grades and finals. The results are displayed through D2L for faculty and students, just as if they were weekly quiz grades. The Garmin device, added CIO Mike Mathews, syncs with an online service that allows students to set goals and share progress with others.

Eventually, the campus will use the analytics to find out whether tracking the fitness data and making it visible gets students to move their bodies more, which is the goal, after all.

How Students Engage with a Remedial English Writing MOOC: A Case Study in Learning Analytics with Big Data | EDUCAUSE.edu

How Students Engage with a Remedial English Writing MOOC: A Case Study in Learning Analytics with Big Data | EDUCAUSE.edu | Learning Analytics in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Insufficient academic preparation is a major barrier to student success in higher education in the United States, and a large percentage of students who require remedial education become mired in courses that are taught using the same deficit-based pedagogy that contributed to their failure to master the curriculum in high school. In 2011, declining state revenues in California and shrinking budgets for education prompted a review of massive open online courses (MOOCs) as a means to improve access to college. However, MOOCs are often designed for students who already possess the kinds of study skills and habits that many remedial students lack. Could a MOOC be designed to serve remedial students without strong study skills and habits? Crafting an Effective Writer: Tools for the Trade (CEW) was designed to create a noncredit option for remedial students to help build their skills before they enter college and thus reduce the remedial instruction needed.

Survey: Students Crave Immediate Feedback in the Classroom -- Campus Technology

Survey: Students Crave Immediate Feedback in the Classroom -- Campus Technology | Learning Analytics in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Nearly four out of five college students in a recent survey said that having immediate access to data analytics regarding their academic performance had a positive impact on their learning experience. The study, conducted by Hanover Research on behalf of McGraw-Hill Education, suggested that students seek the same kind of immediate feedback in the classroom as they get from social media.

The survey of 2,657 college students found that almost two-thirds of students believe the impact of analytics reports on their academic performance is "very positive." Three-quarters of the students said adaptive learning is "very helpful" to them in retaining new concepts. Adaptive learning technology is designed to personalize students' learning experiences based on their command of course material, enabling them to focus their attention on the concepts they need help understanding, at the moment they need it.

The Web We Need to Give Students — Bright — Medium

The Web We Need to Give Students - Bright - Medium
“Giving students their own digital domain is a radical act. It gives them the ability to work on the Web and with the Web.”
By Audrey Watters

Student privacy has become one of the hottest issues in education, with some 170 bills proposed so far this year that would regulate it. These legislative efforts stress the need to protect students when they’re online, safeguarding their data from advertisers as well as from unscrupulous people and companies. There’s some pushback against these proposals too, with arguments that restrictions on data might hinder research or the development of learning analytics or data-driven educational software.
