van Leeuwen, Anouschka – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2015
Learning analytics (LA) are summaries, visualizations, and analyses of student data that could improve learning in multiple ways, for example by supporting teachers. However, not much research is available yet concerning how LA may support teachers to diagnose student progress and to intervene during student learning activities. There is evidence…

Chen, Bodong – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2015
In this commentary on Van Leeuwen (2015, this issue), I explore the relation between theory and practice in learning analytics. Specifically, I caution against adhering to one specific theoretical doctrine while ignoring others, suggest deeper applications of cognitive load theory to understanding teaching with analytics tools, and comment on…

Miyamoto, Yohsuke R.; Coleman, Cody A.; Williams, Joseph Jay; Whitehill, Jacob; Nesterko, Sergiy; Reich, Justin – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2015
A long history of laboratory and field experiments have demonstrated that dividing study time into many sessions is often superior to massing study time into few sessions, a phenomenon known as the "spacing effect." We use this well-established finding from the psychology literature as inspiration for investigating how students…

Cutumisu, Maria; Blair, Kristen P.; Chin, Doris B.; Schwartz, Daniel L. – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2015
We introduce one instance of a game-based assessment designed to measure students' self-regulated learning choices. We describe our overarching measurement strategy and we present "Posterlet", an assessment game in which students design posters and learn graphic design principles from feedback. We designed "Posterlet" to assess…

Sonnenberg, Christoph; Bannert, Maria – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2015
According to research examining self-regulated learning (SRL), we regard individual regulation as a specific sequence of regulatory activities. Ideally, students perform various learning activities, such as analyzing, monitoring, and evaluating cognitive and motivational aspects during learning. Metacognitive prompts can foster SRL by inducing…

Kelly, Nick; Thompson, Kate; Yeoman, Pippa – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2015
This paper describes theory-led design as a way of developing novel tools for learning analytics (LA). It focuses upon the domain of automated discourse analysis (ADA) of group learning activities to help an instructor to orchestrate online groups in real-time. The paper outlines the literature on the development of LA tools within the domain of…

Svihla, Vanessa; Wester, Michael J.; Linn, Marcia C. – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2015
Designing learning experiences that support the development of coherent understanding of complex scientific phenomena is challenging. We sought to identify analytics that can also guide such designs to support retention of coherent understanding. Based on prior research that distributing study of material over time supports retention, we explored…

Nussbaumer, Alexander; Hillemann, Eva-Catherine; Gütl, Christian; Albert, Dietrich – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2015
This paper presents a conceptual approach and a Web-based service that aim at supporting self-regulated learning in virtual environments. The conceptual approach consists of four components: 1) a self-regulated learning model for supporting a learner-centred learning process, 2) a psychological model for facilitating competence-based…

Lowes, Susan; Lin, Peiyi; Kinghorn, Brian – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2015
As enrolment in online courses has grown and LMS data has become accessible for analysis, researchers have begun to examine the link between in-course behaviours and course outcomes. This paper explores the use of readily available LMS data generated by approximately 700 students enrolled in the 12 online courses offered by Pamoja Education, the…

Colthorpe, Kay; Zimbardi, Kirsten; Ainscough, Louise; Anderson, Stephen – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2015
It is well established that a student's capacity to regulate his or her own learning is a key determinant of academic success, suggesting that interventions targeting improvements in self-regulation will have a positive impact on academic performance. However, to evaluate the success of such interventions, the self-regulatory characteristics of…

Reich, Justin; Tingley, Dustin; Leder-Luis, Jetson; Roberts, Margaret E.; Stewart, Brandon M. – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2015
Dealing with the vast quantities of text that students generate in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and other large-scale online learning environments is a daunting challenge. Computational tools are needed to help instructional teams uncover themes and patterns as students write in forums, assignments, and surveys. This paper introduces to the…

Knight, Simon; Littleton, Karen – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2015
There is an increasing interest in developing learning analytic techniques for the analysis, and support of, high-quality learning discourse. This paper maps the terrain of discourse-centric learning analytics (DCLA), outlining the distinctive contribution of DCLA and outlining a definition for the field moving forwards. It is our claim that DCLA…

Pardos, Zachary A. – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2015
In Miyamoto et al. (2015, this issue) the authors looked to substantiate the presence of the spacing effect, referenced from the psychology literature, in several MOOCs. Their secondary analyses constituted a robust, empirical finding on the correspondence between session distribution and certification but with only a coarse, analogous…

Teplovs, Chris – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2015
This commentary reflects on the contributions to learning analytics and theory by a paper that describes how multiple theoretical frameworks were woven together to inform the creation of a new, automated discourse analysis tool. The commentary highlights the contributions of the original paper, provides some alternative approaches, and touches on…

Hewitt, Jim – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2015
The article, "Distributed Revisiting: An Analytic for Retention of Coherent Science Learning" is an interesting study that operates at the intersection of learning theory and learning analytics. The authors observe that the relationship between learning theory and research in the learning analytics field is constrained by several…
