Kent, Carmel; Cukurova, Mutlu – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2020
Although collaboration is considered a key 21st-century skill, oftentimes it is only assessed through the outcome measures of individual learners.

The collection and selection of the data used in learning analytics applications deserve more attention. Optimally, selection of data should be guided by pedagogical purposes instead of data availability. Using design science research methodology, we designed an artifact to collect time-series data on students' self-regulated learning and…

In "Funes the Memorius," Jorge Luis Borges tells the tale of an Argentinian man who falls off a horse, becomes paralyzed, and acquires the strange gift of infinite memory (Borges, 1993). Funes remembers everything, which is to say he forgets nothing. The author will use Borges's story as the backdrop for his response to Professor…

Trezise, Kelly; Ryan, Tracii; de Barba, Paula; Kennedy, Gregor – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2019
Rural teachers and educators are increasingly called upon to build partnerships with families who use languages other than English in the home (US DOE, 2016). This is equally true for rural schools, where the number of multilingual families is small, and the language and cultural backgrounds of students differs from those of school. This article…

Each time a learner in a self-paced online course seeks to answer an assessment question, it takes some time for the student to read the question and arrive at an answer to submit. If multiple attempts are allowed, and the first answer is incorrect, it takes some time to provide a second answer. Here we study the distribution of such…
