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.
