Empirical Results Using Learning Analytics in the Classroom
James, Terry
College Quarterly, v21 n2 2018
The purpose is to improve insights and educational results by applying analytic methods. The focus is on the mathematics applied to learn from the kind of data available to most classes such as final examination marks or homework grades. The sample is 249 students learning introductory college statistics. The result is a predictive model for student success. final grade = 36.8 + 2.26 (complete). The effect ratio is 0.43 at a 95% level of significance. Difficulty ratios were calculated from homework practice questions so professors can see, prior to the first test, what topics and levels of difficulty within a topic need review. The type of over-practice needed to deliver the most improvement is identified. Dashboards to drill down on findings are discussed.
