Learning Analytics

Beginning the Conversations at Rutgers University

Learning Analytics

The purpose of Learning Analytics is to support and improve the learning of students. This includes evaluating, diagnosing, and providing appropriate scaffolds to help students reach their learning goals. Ensuring students become reflective, self-motivated, and life-long learners is another important aspect of Learning Analytics. 

The definition of Learning Analytics varies, but one of the most cited definitions comes from SOLAR, The Society for Learning Analytics Research:

Learning analytics is the measurement, collection, analysis, and reporting of data about learners and their contexts, for purposes of understanding and optimizing learning and the environments in which it occurs (https://solaresearch.org/).

Dr. Ryan Baker's talk on learning analytics from October 15th, 2018 is now available below.

This site also provides various resources on using data in education and learning analytics as you begin to consider its role within your classroom, departments, programs, and schools at Rutgers University.
