Learning analytics to assess more than student performance

The Horizon Report 2011
EDUCAUSE, 2011

“Learning analytics need not simply focus on student performance. It might be used as well to assess curricula, programs, and institutions. It could contribute to existing assessment efforts on a campus, helping provide a deeper analysis, or it might be used to transform pedagogy in a more radical manner. It might also be used by students themselves, creating opportunities for holistic synthesis across both formal and informal learning activities.”

    useful for the larger project, but not much specific to accountability/transparency (except, maybe, “learning analytics” section)

    Agree with Brian … but feel it is very important to the larger project; it may indeed become the center piece.
