WHAT IS LEARNING ANALYTICS

“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.” – Society for Learning Analytics Research

Learning Analytics Functional Taxonomy

Are you wondering how you can include learning analytics practices in your teaching? What data can you access that might help you answer questions you have about your course, your students and your teaching?

This taxonomy was initially explored and adapted by the Blended Learning Fellowship on Evidence-Based Teaching in the spring of 2018.  Six different learning analytics approaches were selected. We will continue to add examples to this taxonomy, including local use cases.

  • Access Learning Behavior
  • Evaluate Social Learning
  • Improve Learning Materials & Tools
  • Individualized Learning
  • Predict Student Performance
  • Visualize Learning Activities
