Abstract: 
Analytics tools provide statistical evaluation of rich data sources to discern patterns that can help individuals at companies, educational institutions, or governments make more informed decisions.

In a teaching and learning context, data from such sources as the LMS, college application forms, and library records can be used to build academic analytics programs that use algorithms to construct predictive models that can identify students at risk for not succeeding academically.
