Analytics: Changing the Conversation (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Learning Analytics in Higher Education | Scoop.it

We live in an information culture. We are accustomed to having information instantly available and accessible, along with feedback and recommendations. We want to know what people think and like (or dislike). We want to know how we compare with "others like me." Just as analytics powers Amazon.com, Netflix, TheRestaurantFinder.com, and Yelp, it can support tools for student empowerment.

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.

Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2012: Education Data and Learning Analytics | Learning Analytics in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Part 7 of my Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2012 series

I chose “data” as one of the top trends of 2011, and the opening line of that article reads “If data was an important trend for 2011, I predict it will be even more so in 2012.” Indeed. There’s a great deal that happened in 2012 that’s a continuation of what we saw last year — enough that I could probably just copy-and-paste from the article I wrote back then:
