When Data Flows to Teachers in Realtime - Tin Can API

When Data Flows to Teachers in Realtime - Tin Can API | Learning Analytics:Who benefits? Who should? | Scoop.it

The Problem Space

When students are using different learning tools, a teacher does not have a good way to get a view of how the student is doing across tools. Often, they have to login in to each tool’s reporting to find out how that student is performing in that one particular silo.

 

Now: Mrs. Stevens can see her iPad continually update as students work in Math Bingo and Quick Touch Math. She can also collect manually tracked activities and qualitative data along with the automated data flowing in from the math applications. When she determines Suzy has achieved the Common Core Standard for subtraction at her level, Mrs. Stevens can send that data straight to the schools InBloom warehouse. Now, even the principal can see in real time how the students are progressing towards these achievements.

Curiosity as a Learning Outcome -- Campus Technology | Learning Analytics:Who benefits? Who should? | Scoop.it
Can we update our learning-assessment systems?
Sharon Minnoch's insight:

Author suggests measuring student behavior, via clicks, is too narrow a gauge for the complexity of desired behavior, which should include, say, level of curiosity. A student self-assessment is suggested (example included), as a way to round out understanding.
